“It is disappointing for Jonesy that he won’t be able to finish off what has been an outstanding individual season for him,” Carlton Head of Football Brad Lloyd said.

“Jonesy and our backline group have formed a really strong bond throughout the year – one that will continue to grow with another full pre-season.

“We wish Jonesy a speedy recovery and look forward to having him back and fully fit for day one of pre-season training.”
