THE Gold Coast Suns have lost another one of their star players through injury.

“Jack’s dislocated his finger and has unfortunately needed surgery to repair quite a significant injury,” Suns physio Lindsay Bull said

“So he’s just had surgery today and after a couple more consultations post-surgery we’ll have a bit more of a timeframe on Jack.”

The injury could mean that Martin has played his final game in the red and gold as his future beyond this season remains undecided.

The 24-year-old, who has played 96 games for the Suns, has been linked to a shift to Victoria as his contract nears its end.

In more dramas for the beleaguered club, teenage sensation Wil Powell could possibly miss the rest of the season after injuring his knee in the weekend’s 92-point loss to Richmond.

“Will injured his lateral meniscus in a tackle in the game early on the weekend,” Bull said.

“So he’s going to consult with a knee specialist in the coming days and we’ll have a plan of action moving forwards after that.”

In the NEAFL, midfielder Aaron Young came off late in the match, also with a knee injury.

“Aaron had a player come across him and injured his medial co-lateral ligament and also had a little bit of damage to his posterior co-lateral ligament as well,” Bull said.

“So he’s going to need to consult a knee specialist as well and we’ll know more after that consultation.”

Jack Martin will also be sidelined for a period of time which will be determined after a consultation with a hand specialist.
