Star Hawthorn midfielder Jaeger O'Meara will not require surgery following a fracture to his face sustained at training on Monday, scans have revealed.

The Hawks' vice-captain sustained the fracture after a knock to the face, and it's expected to force him to miss training in the coming days.

Hawthorn's footy boss Graham Wright confirmed the news on Tuesday.

"Jaeger copped a knock just above his eyebrow in yesterday's session and scans revealed a minor fracture," he said.

"Fortunately for both Jaeger and the club, he won't require surgery and it won't impact his ability to train.

"He will continue to train with the group, albeit we will take a cautious approach to his contact work while the fracture heals itself."

It's expected he will be right to suit up for the Hawks' Round 2 clash with the Cats at GMHBA Stadium on June 12.

Elsewhere around the league, Carlton's Tom De Koning suffered an ankle injury, while North duo Taylor Garner (hamstring) and Ed Vicker WIllis (toe) also suffered minor setbacks.
