Port Midfielder Out For Up To A Month With Fractured Patella

Port Adelaide say Karl Amon will miss up to a month with a fractured patella.

The club's head of high performance Darren Burgess said while Amon sustained a knock to the knee against the Cats, it wasn’t thought the injury was as bad as scans have subsequently revealed.

“We felt it was a minor knock originally, but when he couldn’t come up for the match against Hawthorn we decided to get it scanned,” Burgess said.

“The scans showed a fracture there, unfortunately it looks like a 3-4 weeker for him.”

Amon was a late withdrawal from last Thursday’s match against Hawthorn. He has played in 8-games this year.
