Geary temporarily sidelined after minor surgery on his corked thigh.
St Kilda Captain Jarryn Geary is expected to be sidelined in the short term after undergoing surgery on a corked thigh overnight.

Geary sustained the cork during yesterday’s win over Melbourne at the MCG.

The 30-year-old was sent to hospital after experiencing severe pain from bleeding in the muscle post match. 

Doctors elected to operate to relieve the pressure in the muscle and he is today recovering in hospital.

Geary will be assessed throughout the week before a clearer time-frame is established for a return to training.
