Lions skipper Jonathan Brown is set to need more facial surgery after copping a stray knee in a contest at the clubs training session this morning.
Brown underwent the knife early last season after two separate on-field incidents left the centre-half-forward with injuries to his eye-socket and cheekbone.
The lions tweeted this morning that the 30-year old would have scans on his injured face.
“Browny collided with a team mate at training today & is undergoing precautionary scans. Club won’t speculate on results at this point.” they tweeted.
In other injury news Demons co-captain also suffered what looked to be a serious injury.
Jack Grimes hurt his left shoulder after landing heavily on it after an attempted spoil at the Demons training session this morning.
The club would not speculate on the injury or how long Grimes could stand to miss.
The 22-year-old was appointed co-captain this year alongside teammate Jack Trengove.
Grimes has yet to play a full season since entering the competition 4 years ago.
