CARLTON forward Harry McKay (shoulder) and defender Liam Jones (knee) will miss the remaining two games of the home and away season.
Following initial scans on McKay’s right shoulder, the Club sought further specialist advice during the week which confirmed he will require surgery to repair a high-grade injury to his AC joint.
McKay will undergo the surgery on Thursday morning.
The 23-year-old ends his 2021 season as the competition’s current leading goal kicker with a career-best 58 goals across 19 games.
Jones reported knee soreness in the days following Saturday’s game against Gold Coast.
He underwent scans this week as a result which revealed an injured patella.
Both players are expected to make a full recovery and be available for the start of pre-season.
