The ladder-leading Eagles are sweating on scans to determine the extent of the damage to Darling’s right ankle suffered in their 13-point win over St Kilda.

Darling suffered the injury in the first quarter when he landed on a St Kilda player’s foot after going up for a mark.

The in-form 25-year-old did not return to the contest, instead watching on from the second quarter after making his way to the bench on crutches.

“I don’t know how Jack is, he wasn’t good enough to come back on, so it was another ankle injury, so unfortunately we’ll find out with some scans and hope for the best,” a concerned Simpson said.

Pressed on whether the key forward may have suffered an ankle fracture, Simpson replied: “I can’t rule anything out on Jack, sorry.

He conceded when asked if Darling could face a lengthy stint on the sidelines: “I’m worried, but I always worry.

“… Honestly, I’m not a doctor and I’m not going to lie to you … I don't know how he is.

“I haven't spoken (to him) about how he’s feeling but he was on crutches after the game so we’ll get a scan and find out tomorrow or the next day.”

The Eagles, four points clear at the top of the AFL ladder, have a bye next weekend.

Their next game is a Round 13 blockbuster against Sydney at the SCG on Friday, June 15.
