He was carried from the field in obvious pain, but had to wait nearly an hour for an ambulance to arrive.
The 44-year-old remains in hospital.
Harvey has been a regular for North Heidelberg since his AFL retirement at the end of 2016.
After debuting for North Melbourne in 1996, Harvey played a staggering 21 seasons and overtook Michael Tuck (426 games) in his final year to stand alone at the top.
He was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 2022.
Last week, Harvey competed in a half-time ‘Kick for the Kids’ goalkicking competition during the Kangaroos-Blues Good Friday match.
