Sydney AFL ruckman/forward Kurt Tippett will miss up to six weeks after scans confirmed he suffered a tear to one of his hamstring tendons that join his knee.

The damage occurred in the first half of Sunday's loss to GWS at Spotless Stadium.

Young defender Harry Marsh suffered a hamstring strain in that game and will miss next Sunday's home match with Melbourne, but Gary Rohan has been cleared of hamstring damage and is expected to face the Demons.
