Injury Hamstring
Likely out multiple weeks

Higgins could miss multiple weeks due to a hamstring injury and a broken thumb that needs surgery, according to coach Chris Scott. "Higgins has a fracture of his thumb that requires surgery. That's probably the issue more than his hamstring in terms of the recovery period. Medium term for him."
Higgins has put up decent numbers with 42 disposals over the first two rounds, but he's not done enough to reach the high-end fantasy numbers that he put up on occasion last season. With Higgins out, the Cats are down another player during their off-kilter start to the 2021 campaign.

Leaves with hamstring issue

April 5, 2021
Higgins' match versus Hawthorn on Monday ended early due to a hamstring complaint, Jonathan Healy of the AFL's official site reports.
Higgins finished the night with 12 disposals -- seven kicks and five handballs -- three marks, one free-kick for and two frees against. He's not typically among the upper echelon of midfielders even when healthy, but now he carries a hamstring issue that could keep him off the field for future matches.

Higgins has been a real bright spot for the Kangaroos this season and he continued his strong play Sunday. The midfielder ranks 10th in the league when it comes to total disposals while his uncontested possession numbers are almost the best in the AFL.

Higgins collected 36 disposals (14 kicks, 22 handballs) to go with five marks and five tackles during Saturday's 77-23 loss to Richmond
Higgins and a few of his teammates still managed to get plenty of time on the footy despite a horrid offensive showing after captain Jack Ziebell (hamstring) got hurt. Relying on Higgins is a little bit more difficult, as he's topped 30 disposals in two of the last four and barely reached 15 in the other two.
