The Magpie vice-captain was subbed out in the second quarter of his side's six-point win and has been ruled out for the rest of the home-and-away season after scans revealed the strain.
Collingwood said in a statement he would be further assessed in the coming weeks but his finals campaign would appear in some doubt given the severity of the injury.
