Injury Update with Brady Rawlings (May 26, 2021)

GM of Football Brady Rawlings provides the latest on the injury front at Arden Street.

Published on

Nick Larkey and Todd Goldstein

"They both went off late in the game. We were able to assess them and get them back out on the park. They were able to play the game out which is positive, but we need to make sure they recover well. At this stage it looks like they’ll both be available."

Robbie Tarrant

"It’s good to have Robbie Tarrant back after missing the whole season so far. Robbie will play a half at VFL level after training really strongly the last few weeks. Hopefully, he’ll be back in AFL selection discussions after the bye.'

Jed Anderson

"Jed is going well in his rehab program and should start running next week. From there we’ll be able to assess how far he is away. He’s still obviously a fair way from playing at AFL level."

Jaidyn Stephenson

"He’s recovering well from the wrist injury. He’s still been able to train and function really well. From a fitness point of view, he’s still able to do a lot. He will hopefully be back available for selection in Round 13, maybe Round 14."

Luke McDonald

"Luke is in a similar situation to Stevo (Jaidyn Stephenson) in that they can still get the conditioning in, even though they’re injured. Strength and functionality will be the main part of his recovery given his injury with the pec. He’s probably still four or five weeks away."

Jared Polec

"We’d like to ramp up Jared’s training post-bye. He’ll need to get some weeks in training with the main group. We think that around Round 14 is a realistic time frame for his return."

Kyron Hayden  

"Kyron has had a couple of injuries with his hammy, so we’re being conservative with this one. We want to see him get a couple of weeks of full training under his belt before he’s available to play. He should be playing again after the bye."

Aidan Corr

"The infection is healing really well. We’ve had some good news the last couple of weeks after a frustrating period. The main thing has always been Aidan’s health. We’ll be slow with his recovery given the amount of time he’s had off. He’ll still be out for some time."
