Rohan, Grundy suffer concussion, Tippett to miss Lions

Gary Rohan and Heath Grundy have both suffered concussion in today's loss to the Carlton Blues.

Gary Rohan suffered concussion in the 3rd quarter, going for a speculative mark, cartwheeling over the top of Sam Rowe into the turf.

Play continued for 2 more minutes while two stretchers were brought on to the ground. Rohan lay motionless while he was prepared and placed on the mobile stretcher.

Thankfully he was conscious and talking to the medical staff in the rooms, although Longmire later confirmed that he had been taken to the hospital for pre-cautionary scans.

Meanwhile, Heath Grundy suffered concussion in the last quarter from a marking contest. He slumped to the ground and play once again continued around a player that was basically motionless and unresponsive on the turf.

He was assisted from the ground and didn't return to the field.

Gary Rohan will be expected to miss at least 1 week, while Heath Grundy will be a test for the crucial Brisbane Lions clash.

In other news, Kurt Tippett was a late withdrawal from the side after hurting his hip in training and failing to recover in time.
