Luke Hodge walks from the field with his right arm iced up after the loss to Geelong

HAWTHORN skipper Luke Hodge looks set to miss several games after suffering a suspected broken right arm in the final quarter of his side's loss to Geelong. 

Hodge went off the field in pain after a collision with Cat Mitch Duncan in the last term. Duncan was reported for rough conduct in the incident, although he appeared to avoid contact with Hodge's head.

The Hawks captain finished the game on the bench with his lower right arm and wrist iced up. 

Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson said the club would wait on scans to determine the severity of Hodge's injury but conceded "it doesn't look too good".

"He has got a sore arm so we will get that assessed either tonight or tomorrow night," Clarkson said.

"I would suggest it doesn't look too good because he is a pretty fierce warrior and he doesn't usually come off the ground.

"He was icing up after the game and was pretty sore so we'll just wait and see but he is probably likely to miss a bit of footy, I reckon."

When asked whether Hodge's arm was broken, Clarkson said he would have to wait until the results of the X-ray.

"Hopefully it's not [broken] because if it's not broken he'll play next week but as I said, he doesn't usually come off the ground for an injury like that so it must be pretty sore," Clarkson said.
