KEY forward Charlie Dixon will be sidelined for the remainder of season 2018 after injuring his ankle in the Power's loss to West Coast on Saturday evening. 

The big man landed poorly on his right ankle in a marking contest during the third term of the match. 

Senior coach Ken Hinkley said they're yet to confirm whether the injury is a sprain or break, but was quick to rule him out for the remainder of the season. 

"Dixon won’t play again this year, there’s no doubt about that," Hinkley told media post-game. 

"He’s got a badly sprained, possibly broken ankle. He’ll get over it, and he’ll get on with it and he’ll recover and hopefully it’s a smooth recovery but he won’t play again this year."

Moments after Dixon's injury, defender Dan Houston went down after a big clash with Eagle Brendon Ah Chee. 

He was stretchered off the field and didn't return to the game.

"Houston, he’s had some precautionary X-rays but I think he’ll be fine, he just copped a big hit, no doubt about that but unless there’s anything we haven’t seen, he’ll be ok," Hinkley said. 

"He got hit on the chest, neck and whether he hit his head on the way down as well, he’s been to hospital to check all those things but… he wasn’t coming back on one way or another." 

Paddy Ryder also aggravated his hip flexor during the game and came off the field in the same term; not returning for the remainder of the game. 

According to Hinkley, he's a chance to play next week, but the club will be taking a cautious approach.
