Crows wingman Paul Seedsman will miss 2-3 weeks with a hamstring injury.

Seedsman, 24, sustained the injury at training in the lead-up to Adelaide’s Round 14 clash with North Melbourne.

General Manager of High Performance Brett Burton said further assessment had revealed a minor strain.

“It’s disappointing for Paul because up until now he’s had good continuity in his playing and training, and really added to our team,” Burton said.

“Fortunately, the injury is at the minor end of the scale and we anticipate he’ll be fit to play again in 2-3 weeks.”

Seedsman has played all 12 games since joining the Crows from Collingwood in last year’s AFL Trade Period. He’s averaging a career-high 18 possessions, four tackles and three inside 50ms per game.
