West Coast striker Zac Langdon has been standing on the sidelines for several weeks after a horror headclash with Dockers superstar Nat Fyfe knocked out the Eagles recruits

Play during Sunday’s AAMI Community Series clash was abandoned at the start of the third quarter after Langdon and Fyfe’s heads collided heavily while both had eyes only for the footy

While Fyfe seemed unharmed, Langdon stayed on the lawn before the coaches stormed onto the field

Langdon was finally taken off the floor and pointed with his thumb at the floor of the Optus Stadium

“After a heavy head blow, there was a real silence through the stadium,” Fremantle legend Matthew Pavlich told Fox Footy from the ground

“Everyone in Langdon is a real problem right now. He’s in good hands, some of the most trusted and respected doctors in Australia looking after these types of AFL players. But real concern for Zac Langdon”

Langdon was traded for GWS by the Giants to the Eagles in exchange for pick 54 after 31 games in three seasons last year

“It was an unlucky blow and it was pretty clean,” said Brownlow medalist Gerard Healy

“He’ll be missing for at least the next few weeks – and hopefully that’s all”

“He’s a young guy who is moving to the other side of the country and was hoping to reach that position as a small striker””

Langdon received warm applause from the fans when he was brought into the rooms

When the game resumed, Fyfe received a free kick and received stunning votes from some West Coast fans

“Boos clearly has no guarantee there after an accidental collision between the two,” said Adam Papalia, Fox Footy commentator

“I haven’t had a head hit in a while and it’s not something we want in our game, but sometimes it happens,” Fyfe told Fox Footy after the game

“I hope he’s fine, I’ll check him out after that, but it’s an unfortunate reality of the game”
