Jake Stringer injures his ankle against Hawthorn in their round two NAB Cup clash

WESTERN Bulldogs rookie Jake Stringer will be out for up to a month with an ankle injury.

Stringer suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of Friday night's one-point NAB Cup win over Hawthorn at Etihad Stadium.

It was Stringer's first senior appearance, and clouded a match where he came on as a substitute and kicked a goal with his first kick.

The Bulldogs sent the injury news out via their twitter account. The Bulldogs play their round one match against the Brisbane Lions on March 30 – exactly four weeks away.

Stringer was taken with the fifth pick of the 2011 National Draft after badly breaking his leg as a junior.

The ankle injury is on the opposite leg though.
