CONNOR ROZEE, Mitch Georgiades and Lachie Jones have been medically assessed following Thursday night’s Showdown.

Rozee was removed from the game with hamstring tightness at three-quarter time, and scans on Friday showed a similar injury to the same part of the hamstring as last weekend.

The Port Adelaide captain realized the problem due to fatigue late in the game when he was unable to access his normal power and speed.

Georgiades suffered bruising to his knee but did not suffer any structural damage, while Jones suffered a minor hamstring strain.

Rozee will miss next Friday’s clash against Geelong, while Jones will be re-evaluated on Monday but is likely to miss Round 9 given his injury history.

Georgiades will have his knee re-evaluated early next week.
