Collingwood high-flyer Jeremy Howe is set to have an operation on an injured shoulder that will keep him out of action for around 12 weeks.
The surgery is nothing major and will only involve a little tighten up according to the 28-year-old.
“It won’t be too bad,” Howe said.
“But in saying that I haven’t had shoulder surgery so I couldn’t tell you.”
Howe will go on a European holiday before he gets the surgery, meaning he will likely start pre-season late.
