LINCOLN McCarthy's wretched run with injury continues, with the Geelong small forward set to miss two to three weeks with a right hamstring strain.

The highly talented 24-year-old has played just 29 games in six-and-a-half years, missing large chunks of seasons with groin, hip, back and quad injuries.

He missed the entire 2013 and 2015 seasons with foot injuries.

McCarthy played his first match in 18 months in round 11, missed round 12 with hamstring soreness, before injuring the same muscle against Richmond on Sunday.

"Pretty confident he has a relatively minor strain of his hamstring, so hopefully it'll just be a manner of weeks, two to three hopefully, maybe another week," coach Chris Scott told Fox Footy.

"In the context of his injury history it is not that significant, but it is really adding insult to injury. He's worked so hard to get back and was showing glimpses of what he could do, but he played one game, missed the next and then injured in his second game back.

"It's disappointing for him and us, we continue to talk about getting some continuity in our forward half and he's one of the keys to that. We'll just have to wait a little bit longer."

Geelong players now have a few days off due to the bye this weekend, but will reconvene on the Gold Coast for a mid-season training camp, which will run from Friday to Monday.
