Josh Jenkins has been ruled out of Adelaide’s clash with Essendon after consulting a Thoracic Specialist.

Jenkins injured his ribs in Adelaide’s Round Two win over Hawthorn at the MCG.

The injury hasn’t settled as quickly as hoped, prompting the Club to investigate further this week.

Consultation with a Thoracic Specialist revealed Jenkins has significant damage to the Costochondral Cartilage as well as deep Thoracic bruising.

As a result, Jenkins is unavailable for selection against the Bombers and will be a week-to-week proposition thereafter.
