Geelong has confirmed star midfielder Cam Guthrie is facing 8-10 weeks on the sidelines following scans on a quad injury suffered in the practice match against Carlton.

The two-time Carji Greeves medallist was forced from Ikon Park in the opening stages after going to ground following a kick.

“The prognosis indicates Cam will be sidelined for 8-10 weeks,” Cats football boss Andrew Mackie said.
