Western Bulldogs midfielder Lin Jong's AFL season is officially over, with scans confirming he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the loss to Melbourne on Sunday.

The Dogs had feared the worst after Jong crumpled to the ground when his kick was smothered by Demons captain Nathan Jones early in the first quarter.

Jong will undergo a traditional knee reconstruction and miss the rest of the 2017 campaign.

It is another injury blow for the 24-year-old, who missed last year's grand final triumph after breaking his collarbone in the elimination final.
