Carlton will be without Nic Newman for the rest of the 2020 season after the important defender ruptured a patella tendon early in Saturday’s gut-wrenching one-point loss to Melbourne.

Newman was taken from the field on a stretcher after he injured his right knee during a contest in the first quarter at Marvel Stadium.

Scans on Sunday confirmed the extent of the injury, with Newman to have season-ending surgery.

Kade Simpson has a +15 AFL Fantasy output in games played with Nic Newman out of the side.
