Daniel Wells walks from the field on Monday.
Daniel Wells' season is almost certainly over after scans revealed the veteran needs foot surgery.
Wells, 33, played out Collingwood's win over Melbourne at the MCG on Monday after hurting his foot in the second quarter but it emerged on Tuesday that he suffered high-grade damage to the Lisfranc ligament in his left foot and related bone separation.
“Unfortunately for Daniel, an operation is required. We’ll know what that means, in terms of the rest of this season, after the surgery but it is reasonable to expect that it is a long term injury," Collingwood football manager Geoff Walsh said.
“Clearly, it’s a bitter pill for Daniel to swallow. He had spent a lot of time getting into strong physical shape and, back in the team, he was working his way into the season.”
Wells, who joined the Pies as a free agent at the end of 2016, is contracted for 2019 but has played just 14 games for the club due to a range of injuries.
