After scans to his re-injured left knee early into Wednesday afternoon, Dockers management revealed the sad news that the young budding star's career is in jeopardy.
"Scans have confirmed that Anthony Morabito has torn the graft on his repaired left ACL and will require a further reconstruction," the club tweeted.
Morabito, 21, went down with the cruel injury during a training drill at Fremantle Oval, twisting awkwardly as he attempted to tackle young teammate Tanner Smith.
The talented midfielder yelled out and crumbled to all fours, clearly distraught as he punched the turf in frustration, before being driven to hospital by concerned coach Ross Lyon.
With the graft in his knee torn, it is expected the luckless Morabito will miss the entire 2013 season.
Fremantle football boss Chris Bond said the talented but incredibly unlucky on-baller would require plenty of support in his latest heartbreaking setback.
“Understandably, Anthony is devastated at the moment and the club will be working extremely closely with him and his family,” Bond said.
Morabito has already had two reconstructions on his troublesome left knee, the first in December 2010, following his break-out season with the Dockers.
The number four draft pick had played 23 games in a stunning 2010 season, which won him comparisons to Sydney champion Adam Goodes, before he suffered the dreaded knee blow.
The injury-plagued Morabito had the same knee repaired last July.
