Harry Cunningham will miss up to six weeks of footy with a foot injury sustained in the Swan's win over St Kilda.

Cunningham had kicked two goals from 12 possessions before he was forced from the ground late in the third quarter against the Saints due to a partially torn the Lisfranc ligament in his right foot.

"It's really unfortunate for him. He's been in very good form and really important for us, so it's a bit of a setback," Longmire said.

"Fortunately he's avoided surgery, which is a good thing because that would mean the season."

"Whether he's kicking goals off half-forward, he's played wing, he's played inside mid, he's played down back and on the weekend he had a run-with role with Stephen Hill, who's one of the best players in the competition.

"We've got the faith, and the players have enormous faith in his ability, to be able to carry out his role every week.

"He's a superb athlete, so disciplined, and he gives us enormous flexibility."
