WEST Perth defender Jordan Jones has been ruled out for the remainder of the WAFL season after a hamstring injury at training.
Falcons coach Bill Monaghan said the premiership player had a small tear in his hamstring tendon.
�He pulled up sore after a couple of training sessions he was doing last week so we sent him off for a scan,� he said.
�Whilst the tear in his tendon is not huge, it does require surgery or three-to-six months rest so either way we�ll miss him.
�He goes off for surgery and his year�s done and dusted.�
It is believed to be the same hamstring he injured at the beginning of the season.
It has been a troublesome year for the 24-year-old, who had recovered from his initial leg injury in May only to discover he had broken a finger in a much-publicised fight with Subiaco players at the Hip-E Club in March.
He was set to return from that injury this month before his latest concern.
The 2013 premiership player�s season ends having played only the first round of the competition.
