Jarrod Berry's season could potentially be over after he suffered an ugly-looking injury during Brisbane's 45-point rout against Gold Coast on Wednesday night.
The former Horsham Saint left the field nursing his shoulder midway through the second quarter, and didn't return to the field.
Footage shows Berry's shoulder popping out after he was flung to the turf in the forward pocket.
Brisbane Lions coach Chris Fagan had his fingers crossed he hadn't lost his midfield jet for the season.
"He'll have to have some scans," Fagan said.
"(We've) got the fingers crossed it's maybe a two or three-weeker and not a season-ender, but we won't know until that's all checked out.
"He's convinced me the shoulder is pretty good, but they're tough these boys and all they want to do is play. I'm hopeful."
Earlier in the week, Berry scored selection in the AFL Players' 22-under-22 squad.
