INJURY UPDATE | Round 17

Tim English and Ed Richards look likely inclusions ahead of a Friday night clash with Sydney at the SCG.

Tim English and Ed Richards look likely inclusions ahead of a Friday night clash with Sydney at the SCG.

Both suffered concussions in the past fortnight, with English needing to sit out beyond the protocol period due to his history.

“Ed and Tim have passed all of our concussion protocol requirements and have returned to our full training program without any concerns,” Head of Sports Medicine, Chris Bell said.

“Both players will be putting their hand up for availability.”

Laitham Vandermeer is in line to play some level of football this weekend after making a successful recovery from a hamstring injury.

“Laith has progressed really well over the last month following his high-grade hamstring injury,” Bell said.

“We have progressed him and exposed him to game like athletic and football requirements, including lots of high-speed running.”

“If he ticks all the boxes like I expect, he will return to playing this weekend.”

Josh Bruce will play his second VFL game, returning from a minor hamstring complaint this weekend.

“Josh had some low-level hamstring tightness after his return to playing,” Bell said.

“We want to make sure that Josh plays uninhibited, so we have been conservative in his management.”

“He will return to playing in the VFL this weekend to build his game continuity and match fitness.”
