PORT ADELAIDE defender Jake Pasini has been moved to the club’s inactive list following his long-term knee injury.

Pasini ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee after landing awkwardly in a marking contest at training last week.

The 21-year-old underwent a successful knee reconstruction on Thursday and will miss the rest of the season rehabilitating.

The AFL has approved Port Adelaide transferring Pasini to the inactive list, which means the club has a list spot available and could elect to participate in the 2022 Mid-Season Rookie draft on June 1.
