All-Australian Contender Tom Stewart Set To Miss The Rest of the Home and Away Season

Geelong are preparing to be without backman Tom Stewart for the rest of the home and away season due to injury.

He finished yesterday's 42-point win against the Brisbane Lions in a moonboot, after suffering an ankle injury in the first quarter.

His ankle buckled under Lion Rhys Mathieson while trying to tackle.

Post-game, Chris Scott said it wasn't looking good. 

"We've had a bit of experience with high ankle sprains and syndesmosis injuries.

"That's the early diagnosis, what it means in terms of the prognosis is a bit of a challenge. We haven't had too many of them bounce back in a couple of weeks."

Geelong's defensive stocks will be tested, with veteran Harry Taylor also sidelined with a tendon injury in his left foot.
