Cameron out for ‘several weeks’, Boak scan, Fyfe ‘bit sore’, R17 fixtures locked
Jeremy Cameron’s stint on the sidelines has been confirmed, Fremantle claims Nat Fyfe is looking promising while Port Adelaide’s Travis Boak went for scans in a bit of a worry for owners.
Geelong have ruled out Jeremy Cameron (AF $486k SC $411k FWD) for several weeks following his hamstring injury sustained on Friday night.
Cats Football General Manager Simon Lloyd said: “Unfortunately, this injury will see Jeremy miss several weeks.
“Our medical and conditioning teams are working closely with Jeremy on his rehab program. It will be a matter of monitoring how he progresses to then determine a timeline on his return to football.”
Fremantle’s Executive GM Football Peter Bell spoke about Nat Fyfe (AF $629k SC $505k M/F*) when he said: “He pulled up a little bit sore through that shoulder. That’s probably going to be the case for the rest of the year. At this stage, it’s looking really promising.”
Port put out their injury report which sadly confirmed Kane Farrell (AF $356k SC $261k M/F) has injured his ACL, while it did not mention Travis Boak (AF $730k SC $513k MID) who had scans on Monday.
Boak said: “Just precautionary scans. Bit tight from the weekend. A little bit through the hammy. Should be fine, played out the game.”
Port rookie Lachlan Jones (AF $333k SC $243k DEF) was mentioned. The report said: “Lachie Jones is progressing well, and expected to be able to return in a fortnight after a hamstring injury.”
GWS also put out their report, with Sam Taylor (AF $462k SC $418k DEF) available again, which may impact Nick Haynes (AF $576k SC $424k DEF), potentially positively.
The Round 17 fixtures were also confirmed, which is very relevant for planning your VC/C and loopholes, which extends from Thursday to Monday.
