Brisbane Lions captain Tom Rockliff is expected to miss at least the next two AFL matches due to a fresh hamstring strain.

Rockliff suffered the injury in Sunday's heavy loss to Port Adelaide, with the outcome of scans expected to confirm later on Tuesday he faces a two to three week absence.

In a huge relief for the Lions, the injury does not relate to recent back or nerve problems the injury-plagued Rockliff has battled over the past two seasons.
