JACOB Hopper is the latest casualty in Richmond's horror injury run, with the midfielder set to miss two to three weeks with a hamstring strain.

Hopper left the field during the third quarter of Wednesday's Anzac Day Eve clash against Melbourne, with scans later revealing a mild hamstring strain.


The 27-year-old had only just returned from a knee injury that saw him miss the past month of footy.

He joins Richmond's long injury list, which now features 13 players.

The 17th-placed Tigers face Fremantle next Sunday.
