Carlton defender Sam Docherty has torn his ACL in a training mishap.

Tom Browne confirmed the news this afternoon.

The luckless rebounding defender ruptured his ACL during last year’s pre-season and missed all of 2018 as his team sank to a wooden spoon.

Docherty has unfortunately re-injured the same knee.

He was set to be co-captain with Patrick Cripps in 2019, but will now likely miss the entire season again.
