GEELONG key defender Jack Henry has been ruled out of Saturday's clash against North Melbourne in Tasmania with the club still assessing the extent of his foot injury.

The 23-year-old was substituted out of the Easter Monday loss to Hawthorn after hurting his foot in the third quarter.

Henry underwent surgery on the same foot at the start of January – which was cause for concern after the game on Monday – to repair a fracture and had a rod inserted.

The St Mary's product is struggling with weight-bearing exercises and is currently in a moon boot.

While Henry won't face the Kangaroos, it is unclear right now how much more football he will miss.

Henry emerged as one of the best young defenders in the AFL last year, finishing runner-up in the Carji Greeves Medal behind three-time All-Australian Tom Stewart after playing 24 games.

Sam Menegola has exited concussion protocols but won't get an opportunity to play this weekend due to the VFL side having a bye.

The 30-year-old hasn’t played yet at senior level in 2022 after undergoing knee surgery last October and the club wants him to build some match fitness in the reserves before the West Australian returns to Chris Scott's side.

Menegola was closing in on an AFL return when he suffered the concussion against Collingwood in his VFL return on April 2.
