While Jason Laycock’s MRI scan results have shown there is nothing wrong with his ligaments, the 201-centimetre ruckman has suffered severe cartilage damage in his right knee _ an injury which may still be season ending.

Speaking about Laycock’s immediate playing future yesterday, Burnie coach Brent Plant said a time frame on the his absence was still unknown.

Plant said only when swelling goes down around the knee would the club then get a further indication of how many weeks the former-Essendon big man would be sitting on sidelines for.

“He still may have to have an arthroscope on the knee and that would set him back,” Plant said.

“We’re obviously hoping that he can play for us again this year, but that’s still yet to be known.”

Plant admitted if Laycock did return to the field this season, it would be on his own terms.

“There’s no one that knows his body as well as he does because of the amount of weeks he’s spent in rehab at AFL level,” he said.

Laycock sustained the injury in Burnie’s May 25 clash against North Launceston at home.
