Hawthorn youngster Denver Grainger-Barras has undergone surgery after suffering a turf toe injury.
Head Doctor Liam West said Grainger-Barras is expected to miss the next 12-14 weeks after scans revealed he injured the ligaments around his big toe, commonly known as 'turf toe', which would require surgery.
"During an accidental incident, Denver injured his toe in the intraclub last Thursday with subsequent scans showing he has a significant turf toe injury," West said. 
"Following discussions as a medical team, alongside consultation with several specialists across Australia, it was deemed that the best course of action for Denver was for him to undergo surgery to help return him to play this season and protect the health of his toe in the long term.
“Having successfully undergone this procedure we are expecting to see him return to play in 12-14 weeks."
Grainger-Barras has played both as a defender and forward during his 28 games across three seasons in the brown and gold.
