Jack Macrae will miss this weekend’s clash against Geelong after entering concussion protocols following Sunday’s defeat to West Coast.

The vice-captain will be monitored this week before his return to play plan is developed.

“Soon after the completion of the game, Jackson developed some low-level symptoms that he reported to our Club Doctor,” Head of Sports Medicine, Chris Bell said.

“Jack subsequently failed a concussion test and was immediately placed in protocols.”

“Jack will be assessed during this week before a return to play plan is developed.”

Tom Liberatore looks set to return from his concussion in time for Saturday night’s clash, while Robbie McComb will also make his way back through the VFL.

“Tom and Robbie are progressing well in the final stages for their recovery following their concussions,” he said.

“Both are on track to be cleared to return to full contact training for our main session on Thursday.”

“I’m optimistic that both will return to availability.”
