COLLINGWOOD president Eddie McGuire expects recruit Levi Greenwood to miss the early part of the season due to the ankle injury he suffered against the Western Bulldogs on Saturday night.
 
McGuire told Triple M he wasn't expecting to see Greenwood in the black and white in the early part of the season, echoing the post-game thoughts of Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley.
 
"He'll be tested today," McGuire said.
 
"I think it is going to be a lot longer than round one. I think he'll be out for a fair bit of the early part of the season."
 
The Magpies are expected to provide an official word on Monday afternoon after the scans are assessed.
 
Greenwood was hurt when his foot was caught under Western Bulldogs' forward Jarrad Grant during the third quarter of the team's 61-point loss on Saturday night.

He has managed foot problems in recent seasons and was eased into pre-season training but had shown good form in the NAB Challenge.
 
Collingwood signed Greenwood on a four-year deal after he had a breakout year with North Melbourne, finishing third in the Kangaroos' best and fairest.

Could be a long year for Collingwood.

Well, not as long as the teams playing finals but you know what I mean.

Showed what he can do in the VFL. I reckon he plays against the Dockers in two weeks.
