Tyler Brown was an omission from the VFL match but he has now recovered from a fatigue related illness.
He will return to full training this week and will be available for selection.
Taylor Adams started his rehab conservatively with straight line running and progressed into a testing period last week, with more skills and team training.
He completed part of Friday’s match simulation and pulled up well.
Pending his completion of Thursday’s main session he is expected to be fit and available for Saturday’s clash with Geelong.
Rory Lobb (chest/shoulder) – Test
Matt Taberner (calf) – Test
Griffin Logue (adductor) – Test
Connor Blakely (illness) – Test
Executive General Manager of Football Peter Bell said both Taberner and Lobb will need to get through main training on Wednesday before a decision is made on their return to play.
“Taberner is progressing from his calf injury really well, he had a great session on Saturday,” Bell said.
“He’ll do some more training on Wednesday before a decision is made on his availability.
“Rory is a bit the same, he’ll do full contact training on Wednesday and we’re expecting him to be available.”
Bell said he was confident Griffin Logue would also be available ahead of Saturday.
“He’s got a minor adductor issue going on, he’s another one that will train on Wednesday and we’re really confident that he’ll be available,” Bell said.
