Collingwood forward Jamie Elliott is in danger of missing the entire AFL season after suffering a setback in his recovery from a back injury.

Elliott, 23, has not played a game this season because of a pars defect injury and he aggravated the problem at training last week.

He will consult with a specialist to consider his options, with Pies' football chief Neil Balme admitting the club can't be certain if he will return this season.
