General Manager of Football Simon Lloyd reports –

Patrick Dangerfield “Patty did the full session and he’s functioning well. Again, we need the final tick-off from our medical team, but I expect him to be very close to being available,”

Esava Ratugolea “Esava could’ve played last week – he was very close to playing – and (I) expect Esava to be available (for selection) this week.”

Jeremy Cameron is working through concussion protocols.“Obviously it was a very big hit on Thursday night, and Jezza’s being managed – and managed really well – by our medical team,” “He’s now gone into the concussion protocols, and we’ll be guided by our medical team on his progress. He’ll be assessed throughout the week.”

Jonathon Ceglar  ankle injury. “Obviously initially Jonathon had an adductor injury, and the adductor has improved (but) the ankle is sore. He’s done some Alt-G work, and he’ll commence on-field running (on Tuesday), so hopefully he improves over the coming week,”

Sam Simpson tendon injury.“He had surgery last Thursday, and Sam is back in at the club and he will commence running fairly soon,” .“It is unfortunate for Sam, but he’s put in a good period of football, and he’ll be back in no time.”

Cam Guthrie toe surgery. “Cam is in really good spirits – he was in (Monday) morning doing weights. He’s out of the moonboot this Friday, which is great, so he’ll start weight-bearing on that foot, and before we know it, hopefully, he’ll be running.”

“Unfortunately for Michael, during one of the early contests in the game he suffered an injury to his lower ribs,”

“Following further imaging, it’s shown that he has minor damage to his kidney, which will require him to be limited from contact for a short-term period to allow healing.

Head of Physiotherapy and Medical Services Damian Raper –

Lance Franklin

Lance’s rehab on his knee continues to progress. He will aim to train this week and we will test his availability to play Geelong this weekend.

Peter’s running volume and speed work has increased over the last fortnight. He commenced change of direction work last week and will be introduced into team training next week.

Matt Roberts

Matt began skills training last week and has continued to build his conditioning running over the past few weeks, with the intention of integrating him into full training in the coming weeks.

Will Hayward

Will was a late withdrawal against the West Coast Eagles due to illness. He will be available for selection this weekend against Geelong.

Cooper Vickery

Cooper did not complete the VFL match against Brisbane Lions. Investigations last week revealed he has a bone stress injury in his metatarsal. He will spend a period of time in a boot until his pain settles.

The Eagles hope to regain defender Tom Cole (ankle), ruck Callum Jamieson (hip), backman Luke Foley (hamstring), forward Isiah Winder (knee) and midfielder Greg Clark (foot) in coming weeks.

Elliot Yeo, who is set to miss three-to-four weeks due to a hip concern sustained late Sydney game.

Jake Waterman has been diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease that has put his season in doubt while he undergoes further testing and treatment

Liam Ryan is looking more unlikely than likely to return this year following hamstring surgery.

“Liam has had a number of investigations and review with specialists because he hasn’t progressed as we would’ve liked, so we’re collating all that information and we’ll put that together over the next week or two and make the next phase for Liam’s progress from there,”

  1. WCE: Jack Williams “It’s a rolled ankle. It’s early in the week. We will have a scan. There are another four or so scans that we’ve got this week, so we might be missing some senior players.” Simpson


    1. Jack Williams (ankle)
      “The MRI had has shown some ligament damage but nothing else internally, which is good.

      “He’s been really good getting the swelling down and icing. We’ll give him as late as possible to test his availability for this weekend.”

      Elliot Yeo underwent scans on a sore hip from the Swans match and was on light duties at training on Tuesday.

      “Elliot reported tightness in the front of his hip towards the latter stage of the game … and subsequently has had an MRI that has shown he has got a bit of irritation around his hip flexor on his left side,”

      “He’s struggled to get moving at the start of this week and we’ll just need to let that settle down and then build through the rehabilitation for that.”

      Samo Petrevski-Seton was another casualty from the Sydney clash after straining a quad early in the match.

      “Samo had tightness in his quadricep early in the game, so was restricted in his function but was able to help the rotation with minutes,” Finucane said.

      “He has actually pulled up OK from the game but he does have a strain on scan so he’ll miss the next couple of weeks.”

  2. I wonder how Ridley would go if Zerk-Thatcher doesn’t get up from his injury this week.
    Would he become more of a key defender potentially restricting his scoring?


  3. WCE: Elliot Yeo is set to miss three-to-four weeks due to a hip concern sustained late in the tough loss to Sydney.


    1. Took the punt on Yeo and he’s made me a quick 100k, but the inevitable has happened!
      TU: Trade to a Ryan
      TD: Swing Dawson back and trade in mid
