Immediately following last night’s fixture against Essendon, Tom Liberatore reported to the Bulldogs’ medical team with no concussion symptoms and passed a head injury assessment, conducted as per AFL protocols.

Tom remains without concussion symptoms this morning. However, given the concerning nature of in-game footage during the final minutes that show Tom falling to the ground, the Club’s medical team has subsequently reached a decision to place him in concussion protocols.

This decision has been taken with an abundance of caution, with Tom’s health and wellbeing the absolute priority.

As a result, Tom will miss Thursday’s match against St Kilda and will continue to be monitored.
