Cox suffers nasty knee injury in freak marking accident

Mason Cox was subbed off just minutes after an awkward landing on his knee in Collingwood‘s clash against Fremantle on Friday night.

Cox drifted across the pack to spoil a marking contest in Collingwood’s defensive 50 in the third term.

He took a heavy hit to his ribs, competing with Docker Jye Amiss whose knee went into his ribs, falling to the turf, with his knee getting caught underneath him.

The Pies ruckman was down on the ground for 30 seconds in agony, before being helped to his feet and walking himself off Optus Stadium.

After being assessed on the bench, Cox was rushed down to the rooms, where the substitution was made just a minute later.

Cox had already been taken off the ground after suffering a blood nose and then a later cut to his face earlier in the match.

It meant debutant Wil Parker got his chance.

Parker was drafted to the Pies as a category B rookie at the start of the year, joining the club after a stint as a cricketer, playing for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield and Hobart in the BBL.

In the final term, the Pies were forced down to three on the bench, after removing Brody Mihocek with hamstring awareness.
