Lions lose key goalkicker Green with foot fracture

AFL 2015 Rd 02 - North Melbourne v Brisbane

Josh Green could be in doubt for round one due to a foot fracture

THE BRISBANE Lions have been dealt their first major injury blow of 2016, with small forward Josh Green to miss 10 weeks with a fractured foot. 

Green was sporting a moonboot at the club's pre-season training camp at the Sunshine Coast on Wednesday, with the club initially thinking he had bone bruising.

However, after further scans, Lions football manager Matt Francis confirmed to AFL.com.au the 23-year-old had fractured his right foot.

It's the same foot that cost Green six matches last season with a stress fracture.

The diminutive Tasmanian is an integral part of the Lions’ forward set-up, being the club's leading goalkicker the past two seasons.

Green will speak to surgeons later this week and is expected to be fit for round one, although would likely need some match fitness to be considered for senior selection.
