Bec Beeson will miss AFLW matches for the first time in her career.

GIANTS midfielder Bec Beeson will be sidelined with an ankle injury sustained against the Dockers on Sunday.

The inaugural GIANT is expected to miss multiple matches after suffering an ankle sprain in round two.

GIANTS AFLW Head Physiotherapist Gemma Vale said:

“Bec’s injury forced her out of the game last Sunday and will see her likely miss the next few weeks.

“It’s a lateral ligament sprain so she’ll be off-legs in the immediate term before we assess how her ankle responds to treatment and build her back up to full fitness.”

Beeson has not missed a game since round one of the inaugural 2017 season.

Fellow midfielder Chloe Dalton is likely to return from a shoulder injury for Sunday’s clash with the Kangaroos in Melbourne.

The recruit hurt her AC joint in Mackay in round one, missing round two, and will undergo a fitness test later in the week.

Utility Tarni Evans is continuing to build back to full fitness following a pre-season foot injury.

Forward Tait Mackrill will miss round three with suspension.
