The club has now revealed that a medical report has indicated that the big man has suffered a “turf toe” injury to his right foot and will miss up to 10 weeks.
Chris Bond, Fremantle’s general manager of football operations said that the report that the club received today confirmed that the 29-year-old would miss up to 10 weeks.
“It’s very disappointing for Aaron, the club and our members and supporters,” Bond said.
“But as is always the case in these situations it provides a great opportunity for other players in the group to step up and take on the challenge created by Aaron’s absence.”
Sandilands will see apparently be consulting a specialist to determine whether or not surgery will be required.
In his absence the club is expected to go with former Adelaide Crow Jonathon Griffin as well as the recently dropped Zac Clarke.
The Dockers have a bye next week and their next game will be on Saturday the 23rd of June against Essendon at Patersons Stadium in WA.
