Jaidyn Stephenson will not require surgery on his fractured hip.
The 22-year-old has been discharged from hospital, as he recovers from a bicycle fall in his backyard last week.
North Melbourne CEO Ben Amarfio confirmed Stephenson is on track for a full recovery.
“We are disappointed because it was a real lack of judgement that landed him (Stephenson) in this spot, but the good news is it’s a small fracture that doesn’t need an operation, so he’s dodged a worse outcome there,” Amarfio told The Herald Sun.
Stephenson averaged 19 disposals and a goal a game in his first season at North.
