Injury Update: Round 17

RD 17 | Injury Report Saints Physiotherapist Andrew Wallis takes a look through the Saints' injury list.

Josh Battle will miss 2-3 with a low-grade strain to his medial ligament.

The 20-year-old left the ground during the first quarter against North Melbourne on Sunday, with an adductor injury initially believed to be the problem.

Further assessment revealed the emerging defender had jarred his hip in addition to the low-grade strain.

Battle was at the club this morning and will return to the track as early as this weekend.

Dean Kent was also back at the club today, following surgery on his quadriceps muscle late last week.

The 25-year-old will miss the remainder of the season, however his rehab is now set to commence this week.

Dan Hannebery trained today and will train again on Thursday after being rested due to soreness last week.

The decision as to whether or not Dan will play this weekend will be made after Thursday’s training session.

Lastly, Max King is now out of his moonboot following knee surgery three weeks ago.

The promising forward is already back in the gym and progressing well.
