SAM POWELL-PEPPER will miss the remainder of the 2024 season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament during Friday night's game against St Kilda, while Connor Rozee is no guarantee to play in the upcoming Showdown.

Powell-Pepper left the field after landing awkwardly following a marking contest, with scans later revealing a torn ACL.


Power captain Rozee's availability for Thursday night's clash against crosstown rivals Adelaide will be determined during the week after scans revealed a low-grade hamstring strain.

Rozee left the field during Friday's clash after feeling tightness in his hamstring following a kick.


Defender Aliir Aliir has entered concussion protocols after suffering a headknock against the Saints, meaning he will also miss the upcoming Showdown.

The 2021 All-Australian's head hit the ground during a tackle by St Kilda's Jack Higgins, who is likely to come under scrutiny from the match review officer for the incident.
