Saints lose King for at least two weeks

St Kilda will be without ruckman Steven King for at least the next fortnight because of a hamstring injury.

Saints defender Sam Gilbert will also be out of action for 5-8 weeks after the shoulder injury he suffered in Friday night's AFL win over Essendon.

Fellow ruckman Michael Gardiner will have to pass a fitness test on his injured calf before he plays in Saturday night's AAMI Stadium match against Port Adelaide.

The injury to King means Justin Koschitzke will probably lead the ruck against the Power.

It also means key forward Fraser Gehrig is likely to return to the team after he was dropped for the Essendon game.

Small forward Adam Schneider will also undergo testing this week as he tries to resume from a hamstring injury.
