Collingwood has ruled Jordan De Goey, Jamie Elliott and Levi Greenwood out of its round one clash against the Western Bulldogs.
The Magpies say that De Goey will undergo surgery on a broken hand after sustaining the injury in an accident at home across the weekend.
The 21-year-old will miss 2 to 3 weeks.
Jamie Elliott will miss due to an ankle injury but the club expect them to be available “in coming weeks”.
Greenwood will miss four to six weeks due to a hip injury.
High profile recruit Daniel Wells was also ruled out of the Round 1 clash last week.
