Geelong Captain Patrick Dangerfield will be sidelined for four-to-six weeks with a hamstring injury sustained during Saturday’s 13-point win over Carlton.

The injury, to his left hamstring, is the same one he injured in Round 2 where he missed three games.

“The injury Pat has sustained is similar to the one from earlier in the season where he missed 21 days. Given the injury is to the same leg, we will continue to take a conservative approach in his recovery and return to play,” Cats Assistant General Manager of Football Brett Johnson said.

“With a focus to set Pat up for the second part of the season, at this stage he will miss four-to-six weeks, however we will re-assess his progress and the timeframe that he returns to the line-up as he works through his training program.”
