The utility player was injured when he and a team-mate were caught up in a fight involving Subiaco players outside a nightclub in Leederville on March 29.

He had eight screws inserted in the joint and will not be able to start walking without crutches for about 10 weeks.

�I�ll get through it,� he told the Weekender on Saturday after watching his team-mates against Perth at Joondalup.
