Sydney forward Buddy Franklin will miss a fourth week with a bruised heel.

Swans coach John Longmire ruled him out from Saturday night’s game against Fremantle this morning.


The Swans say that Buddy first injured his heel in their win against West Coast at Optus Stadium in round one.

He managed the injury for the next month, but couldn’t take his place against the Cats in round six and hasn’t been able to get back.

Midfielder Dan Hannebery is also trying to get back from a groin injury and may be able to play this weekend.

John Longmire responded to Alastair Clarkson’s comments about Sydney’s defenders getting away with “blue murder” on the Sunday Rub this weekend:
