The 22 year-old will undergo surgery on Tuesday and with an early diagnosis, Melbourne are confident of a speedy and full recovery.

He could return to footy sooner rather than later.
Massive positive for Jesse Hogan. Could be back 4-8 weeks. Caught it so early really helps him out.

We talk about a game for a living but hard to imagine a guy having a rougher 6-7 weeks than Jesse Hogan. Very sad and fingers crossed.
