The Western Bulldogs confirm that Tim English suffered some migraine-related symptoms in the weeks prior to the Christmas break.

As he has suffered concussion in the past, the Club wanted to be thorough and diligent in Tim’s management and engaged medical specialists.

As these comprehensive assessments were being completed in late December and early January, Tim was placed in a non-contact training model.

Specialists confirmed that Tim’s symptoms were not related to concussion and more consistent with a migraine.

Tim’s migraine symptoms have now fully resolved and he will progress back into full training over the next week.
