AFL 2016 Training - Adelaide Crows 090216

Charlie Cameron is set to return to full training

Crows Senior Coach Don Pyke will have close to a full squad to choose from for Round One.

Adelaide reported no new injuries in its NAB Challenge win over the Gold Coast on Friday night.

The selection pressure at West Lakes is set to increase when forwards Charlie Cameron and Riley Knight re-join the main training group this week.

Cameron has recovered from minor knee surgery that saw him sit out the NAB Challenge, while Knight has been on a modified program because of a sprained ankle. Draftee Tom Doedee, who is yet to pull on the Crows jumper at either level, is also back in full training after a lighter few weeks.

General Manager of High Performance Brett Burton said the trio would be available for Round One selection.

“Riley Knight, Tommy Doedee and Charlie Cameron have been in the rehab environment for the last few weeks, but all going well they’ll join in main training over the rest of this week and next week,” Burton said.

“All going to plan, they’ll be available for selection.

“Obviously, then it’s over to the coaches to decide whether they’re playing seniors or SANFL.”

Defenders Andy Otten and Ricky Henderson are also expected to put their hands up for selection.

Otten (knee) and Henderson (back) both had surgery before Christmas, but have been back in full training for several weeks.

“Andy Otten and Ricky Henderson have effectively done a mini pre-season over the last 6-8 weeks,” Burton said.

“Medically, they’ve been cleared and from a loading point of view they’re really building some good fitness.

"They’re on track for Round One as well.”

Midfielder Mitch Grigg, who suffered a corked thigh in Adelaide’s SANFL trial, has also been cleared to train this week.

Currently, the only player unavailable for selection in Round One is trade period recruit Curtly Hampton.

Hampton, who was a late withdrawal from Saturday’s SANFL trial game, will miss 6 - 8 weeks with a foot injury.
