COLLINGWOOD match-winner Jordan De Goey has suffered a left ankle injury at training.

During match simulation at Olympic Park on Friday morning, the star forward leapt for an aerial ball but landed awkwardly and immediately clutched at his left ankle in pain.

De Goey remained on the deck for about a minute as he was attended to by trainers.

He was then assisted to his feet and aided from the field.

The full extent of the injury will be known after medical scans.

De Goey, 22, had been regaining fitness and had just returned to the main group after suffering a hamstring setback before Christmas.

It could be the third successive pre-season De Goey's preparation has been interrupted, given he received club-imposed suspensions in each of the past two seasons for off-field misdemeanours. Last year he was also ruled out of the opening three rounds with a hamstring problem.

De Goey was the club’s leading goalkicker last year with 48 goals in 21 games to spearhead the Magpies to a Grand Final berth. He tallied 12 goals in four finals.

In better news, high-profile recruit Dayne Beams passed his first major test, emerging unscathed after participating in the bulk of the two-hour match simulation session.

Beams, who returned to training on Wednesday after spending a week away from the club with illness, combined well with black team teammates in skipper Scott Pendlebury, Adam Treloar and Brayden Sier.

Injury-plagued small forward Jamie Elliott continues to build momentum for a return to AFL level and tested his hamstrings with a long set-shot goal from outside the arc.

Father-son draftee Will Kelly also joined in on match play for the first time after post-season ankle injury.

Young midfielder Josh Daicos, so impressive this pre-season, finished the hit out with strapping on his left thigh after copping a corky.

Forward Will Hoskin-Elliott was confined to the sidelines with a minor knee issue, while ruckman Brodie Grundy (toe) and defender Jeremy Howe (thigh) also didn't appear.

Meanwhile, a group running only included backmen Jack Crisp, Lynden Dunn and Matt Scharenberg, along with forward/midfielders Daniel Wells and Tim Broomhead.
