Claye Beams will
miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.
It was originally hoped Beams would miss just a month, but coach Justin Leppitsch revealed a far worse outcome.
"Unfortunately they've had to stitch his cartilage back together and that's usually a 12 to 14 week injury," Leppitsch said.
"So if you do the numbers, it probably means his season."

Coming out of contract at the end of the year, Claye Beams hopes to have a big 2014 after recovering from a knee reconstruction.

"Being out of contract at the end of the year (as well), they're two tough challenges.
"I've got to play footy to retain my spot on the list. I look forward to the challenge ahead."

Lion Claye Beams can thank his brother, Collingwood's Dayne, for his career in the AFL.
"Watching Dayne play footy again reignited my bug and I started playing again and was lucky enough to play here," Claye said.
"He told me to get off my arse and do something. He was supportive and one of the main reasons I got back out there.
"I'd sat out half the (2009) season already and thought I might have left my run a bit late, but I thought 'Stuff it, I've got nothing to lose', so I gave it a crack and was lucky enough."
