ANGUS Brayshaw has suffered a low-grade strain to his left knee and will miss the next four weeks.

The club confirmed on Wednesday that Brayshaw would miss the rest NAB Challenge, but remains some chance for round one.

General manager of football operations Josh Mahoney said: “After gathering all the information over the last few days, we can confirm that Angus has suffered a low-grade medial ligament strain and some bone bruising on his left knee.”

“This will be treated conservatively, but we expect Angus to begin his running rehabilitation next week.

“He will then build his training loads from there and we expect him to be back playing football in the next four weeks.”
