RICHMOND midfielder Nathan Drummond will have scans on his 'good' left knee amid concerns he may have suffered another ruptured ACL.

Drummond was carried from the field in the Tigers' VFL clash with Sandringham with a left knee injury.

He was reportedly visited in the rooms by Richmond coach Damien Hardwick and some senior-listed players in attendance. 

It comes almost two years to the day after the 22-year-old suffered a ruptured ACL in his right knee in his senior debut, against Melbourne in the 2015 Anzac Day eve clash.

Drummond returned to senior ranks in round 18 last year, playing four consecutive games before finishing the season in the VFL.

The Tigers prevailed over the Zebras by 25 points at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, with Taylor Hunt, Corey Ellis and Jacob Townsend among the best.
