Greene sidelined with ankle injury

Medical Room | Latest on Greene, Cavarra, Khamis and Vandermeer Chris Bell gives the medical room update on Fergus Greene, Ben Cavarra, Buku Khamis and Laitham Vandermeer

Developing Western Bulldogs forward Fergus Greene is set for a stint on the sidelines after injuring his ankle in the VFL on Friday night. 

Greene had booted two goals against the Magpies at Olympic Park before being caught in a tackle and sitting out the remainder of the game.

“The mechanism of his injury has caused him to damage one of the small bones in his ankle,” said Bulldogs’ Medical Services Manager, Chris Bell.

“He’s in a protective CAM boot for the next two to three weeks, and a return to play plan will become clearer after he comes out of his moon boot.”

Meanwhile, a trio of young Bulldogs are inching towards a return to the field.

Ben Cavarra (ribs), Laitham Vandermeer (hamstring) and Buku Khamis (knee) are all expected to be available in the weeks following the Club’s VFL bye this weekend.

The 22 which played for the Dogs against Collingwood last Friday night are all expected to be fit for selection for Sunday’s home clash with Carlton at Marvel Stadium.
