Geelong youngster Nakia Cockatoo has been sidelined early in the match against the Western Bulldogs.
Cockatoo went to the bench with a complaint in his hamstring during the first quarter.
Triple M's boundary rider Neroli Meadows spotted Cockatoo talking to the doctors and asking them questions.
He went down to the rooms at quarter time before re-emerging with ice on his hamstring.
"Geelong are officially a man down," she reported.
"Nakia Cockatoo's night is done.
"He's re-emerged from the rooms with ice on that right hamstring."
Cockatoo had managed three disposals and a goal assist before going off.
