Port Adelaide's Charlie Dixon will be fine after a knock to the knee

Port Adelaide recruit Charlie Dixon hurt his knee during training on Friday, but club staff say the 25-year-old will be fine.

The key forward, recruited from Gold Coast last year, reportedly fell to the ground in pain after injuring himself while performing a drill.

But he got up again and completed the session and Port Adelaide released a statement saying Dixon's knock to the knee was not a concern.

"Despite obvious pain after suffering a knock to the knee, he got back up again," said the statement on the club's website.

The statement made light of the incident, headlining their link "Man falls down at training, gets up," with the subheading "See some photos of a guy running at training."

But it is understandable that Port fans may have been concerned about Dixon's fall, after former Bombers Angus Monfries and Patrick Ryder were this week suspended for the entire season, severely reducing the team's fire power in 2016.
