Andrew McPherson (Knee) Out for the remainder of the season after injuring his knee in the SANFL. Scans confirmed damage to his left posterior cruciate ligament. He has avoided surgery but will be in a knee brace for the next 4-6 weeks before progressing to the next stage of his rehabilitation.

Josh Rachele (hip) 1 week.

“Josh is moving really well, we anticipate he’ll be training late this week and if not then early next week and should only miss this weekend’s game.

“We’re having to hold him back a little bit, he’s pretty enthusiastic and is doing everything we ask and more so he’s right on track to be back in a week.” High Performance Manager Darren Burgess

Luke Brown (knee) 1-2 weeks. “He’s still experiencing some discomfort in his knee, he’s running pretty well at the moment and we anticipate he’ll be training either late this week or early next week and be available shortly after that,” High Performance Manager Darren Burgess said.
