COLLINGWOOD midfielder Taylor Adams will miss at least the next six weeks to nurse his left hamstring injury.
The 22-year-old sustained the setback in the third quarter of last Sunday's 21-point loss to the Western Bulldogs.
Adams said he could be sidelined for up to two months to recover from the soft tissue injury.
"The hamstring injury is probably going to leave me off the ground for six to eight weeks," Adams told ABC radio on Sunday.
"It's a tendon injury high up in my hamstring so the physios and the docs are pretty cautious when a tendon is involved in any injury."
Taylor was one of four Magpies struck by injury against the Bulldogs in round 10.
Defender Alan Toovey was the first casualty after failing a concussion test followed by injuries to forwards Alex Fasolo (scapula) and Darcy Moore (collarbone).
