GOLD Coast's Callum Ah Chee will undergo season-ending ankle surgery on Wednesday afternoon after suffering a high-grade sprain.
Ah Chee sustained the injury at training on Tuesday afternoon and will undergo surgery to the right ankle.
FULL INJURY LIST Who's ruled out and who's a test?
It continues a wretched 2019 for the gifted utility, who played his first senior game prior to Gold Coast's bye, after overcoming a quad injury that cruelled the early part of his year.
General manager of football operations Jon Haines said it was a huge disappointment for both Ah Chee and the club.
"Cal is a highly regarded member of our playing group and he will receive all the necessary support throughout the upcoming rehabilitation process," Haines said.
"Cal is a key part of our long-term plans and we will ensure that his recovery sets him up for a strong pre-season campaign."
IT'S AN EMERGENCY Who's missed the final cut most this season?
Ah Chee was the eighth pick in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft and has played 45 games for the Suns.
He is out of contract at season's end.
