Adelaide forward Josh Jenkins has suffered a lateral ligament and capsular injury and will likely miss between four and six weeks.

Jenkins underwent scans on Friday morning which ruled out damage to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee.

Crows Science and Medical Services Coordinator Steve Saunders provided updates on four injured Adelaide players on Friday afternoon.

Josh Jenkins

“Scans today have confirmed Josh has sustained a lateral ligament and capsular injury with bony bruising due to the extreme nature of last night’s hyperextension injury.

“We expect Josh to complete his rehabilitation in 4-6 weeks and will update as progress is made.”

Daniel Talia

“Daniel’s scans confirmed a quadricep muscle injury following contusion to the thigh.

“Although unable to return to play on last night, he will be available to play after the bye.”

Lachlan Murphy

“Lachie Murphy will also be available for the game against Geelong after receiving emergency dental care last night."

Jake Kelly

"Sustained a lower leg contusion in a collision last night that prevented him taking any further part in the game.

"Jake had lost the ability to change direction, jump and land as his calf and deep shin musculature were involved.

"Following MRI and improved clinical presentation today we expect him to recover well and be available for Geelong also."
