Melbourne skipper Max Gawn will undergo scans on his knee ahead of Sunday’s clash with West Coast, according to 10 News’ Lachy Reid.

The star Demons ruckman, who was wearing a compression band around the area, confirmed on Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Brown on Monday that he suffered the setback against St Kilda in Sunday’s clash.

“I hurt myself in the second quarter in a rough contest with Paddy Ryder and then played out the game so it’s not that bad, I managed to play out the game,” he said.

“I did sit forward a lot, Luke Jackson did a lot of the run work in the second half, but I think I’m ok.”

The Western Bulldogs are counting the cost of a “night of carnage” in the loss to Port Adelaide.

It’s been confirmed Cody Weightman broke his collarbone when he tried to lay a bump on Sam Hayes in the last quarter.
