Bartel to miss two months with knee injury

Geelong champion Jimmy Bartel will miss at least two months of AFL football after scans revealed a torn medial ligament in a knee.

Bartel, 31, will on Thursday go under the knife to repair the damage, the Cats said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Brownlow medallist suffered the tear in a collision with Gold Coast’s Michael Rischitelli in the Cats’ win over the Suns at Simonds Stadium on Sunday.
