Damian Barrett has revealed the injury concern around Todd Goldstein, saying he is in "serious doubt" to face Geelong tomorrow.
"Todd Goldstein did definitely leave the training track yesterday on crutches and is in serious doubt for the North Melbourne game against Geelong tomorrow," he reported.
"(They) haven't yet made a decision, the Roos."
Barrett confirmed it was Goldstein's lower leg that was the concern.
"It is a lower leg - and quite low, I believe - that's the issue.
"(He's) not yet ruled out, but he's in significant doubt."
James Brayshaw somehow found a silver lining.
"One of the great joys about not being (North) chairman any more. In past years there would be 18 sets of eyes straight on you going 'well?' - now I have absolutely no idea," he said.
"But he would be a big loss."
