“We had a decision to make (on Newman) as to whether we did surgery or not and, given the break in AFL, we decided to get surgery on that lateral ligament in his elbow,” director of high performance Andrew Russell told Carlton’s website.

“We feel like it’s going to be an eight-10 week injury. So he should be back maybe when we resume or very soon after we resume.

Newman scored 49 AFL Fantasy points in Round 1 against Richmond from 71% time on ground.

Newmans absence would further push Sam Docherty into must own territory.
