“The health and safety of everyone in our game, both on and off the field, is always our highest priority,” Mr Hocking said in a statement.

“Football boots with exposed metal studs have the potential to cause injuries and have no place across any level of our game.

“There are players in the competition who have been wearing boots direct from manufacturers that feature screw-in studs that have a hybrid soleplate, which includes both plastic and aluminium stops, and these are not compliant with AFL Regulations.

“It is the responsibility of clubs and players to work with manufacturers to ensure football boots worn by all players are compliant with AFL Regulations and ensure a duty of care to themselves, their teammates and opposition players.

“Where we can make our game safer for everyone involved, we will.”

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley confirmed that Quaynor will likely miss the next couple of weeks depending on how the wound heals.

"His studs sort of raked across his shin and … the kid could have had metal studs in as well, so that was his bad luck, tackling the only kid who (potentially) had that," Buckley said.

"But that will be a couple of weeks (out). It'll depend on how you can clean the wound and heal that up."
