Matt White tears pectoral muscle, will miss half the AFL season

Port Adelaide has been dealt a heavy injury blow, with speedster Matt White to miss more than half the season.

Scans have confirmed White tore his right pectoral muscle during the first quarter of Sunday’s first round clash with St Kilda.

The club said White, 28, wouldn’t return until at least Round 14.

‘It’s a complete rupture to the pectoral muscle, which for Whitey will mean he misses at least 12 weeks,’ high performance manager Darren Burgess said.

‘It’s really disappointing for him, unfortunately the symptoms present similar irrespective of the severity of the injury, so we couldn’t confirm the detail until the scans.

‘He’ll spend six weeks in a sling and then we’ll progress as required after that.’
