CO-CAPTAIN Jack Viney will likely miss the next two games of football, after sustaining an injury to his shoulder during Melbourne’s Round 6 loss to Richmond.

The 25-year-old suffered the injury after a heavy collision with Richmond’s Sydney Stack in the third-quarter of the clash. 

Viney was cleared of any concussion issues during and after the game.

 

“Jack suffered a moderate-grade AC joint sprain during the third-quarter following a bump,” Elite Performance Manager David Misson told Melbourne Media.

“We’ll monitor how Jack progresses over the next week, but our expectation is that he’ll probably miss one to two games.
