WESTERN Bulldogs utility Lin Jong will take a "short break " from playing football as he battles with mental health issues . Jong hasn't featured at AFL level since August last year, having dealt with hamstring injuries and a ruptured appendix through the 2019 season.

“The club allowed me to spend a bit of time away from training, but I wanted to be around my team-mates and the football staff, so we decided I would continue to be part of the program without playing games for the time being.

“The environment at the Bulldogs allows players to be themselves and communicate openly, so I felt comfortable about speaking up.”

Jong has managed 61 games in his career since being drafted in 2012 rookie draft, though injury has kept him to 12 and 10 matches in the past two seasons respectively.

He has endured two broken collarbones, a fractured jaw and an ACL injury in the past, while having to deal with a torn hamstring and ruptured appendix this year which has seen him sidelined for the first half of the season.
