Richmond defender Nick Vlastuin has had his night ended early by a shoulder injury against the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.
Vlastuin was injured in a contest in the second quarter and immediately went down the race.
He was seen later with a heavily strapped shoulder and in clear pain.
He appeared in the second half on the bench in a tracksuit.
Vlastuin’s injury hasn’t halted Richmond’s momentum — they lead 8.6 (54) to 5.8 (38) eartly in the third term.
