North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos defender Hannah Bowey is "progressing well" with her bone stress issue, says senior physiotherapist Billy Williams.

The shin injury will see 24-year-old miss this weekend's SuperClash bout with the Blues in addition to the season-opener, but she is likely to be in the frame for a Round 3 return.

"Hannah has joined her teammates back in training and will continue to build out her training loads and fitness," he said.

"She's looking on track (for Round 3) and we're all excited to see her back in competition soon."


Experienced midfielder Jenna Bruton (calf) and young speedster Zoe Savarirayan (knee) remain as the only others in rehab as the Roos made it out of Hobart unscathed.

"Jenna has finished the acute recovery phase of her calf strain and is pain-free with all daily activities," Williams said.

"As expected, she has approached her rehab with the upmost professionalism and positivity which is a credit to her character.


"She will return to running this week with the rehab group, and is on track for a return in approximately three weeks' time.

"Zoe continues to improve her running capacity and knee function following her ACL reconstruction.

"She completed a 1.5km time trial on the weekend and showed us her progression by finishing in an impressive time."
