Josh Rachele and Patrick Parnell have both recovered from corked thighs and are expected to be available to play Gold Coast this weekend.

Parnell was injured on debut in Adelaide’s win over West Coast in Round 12 while Rachele has not played since Round 10.

“Paddy had that significant corkie and was unable to train or run last week, but after the break he’s presented really well,” Crows High Performance Manager Darren Burgess said.

“He did some running away from training on Monday and will be able to complete full training tomorrow and be available for the weekend.

“And Josh has been steadily increasing his running capacity to the point where he trained fully on Monday and we expect him to train and be available (this weekend).

“It’s fair to say we’ve had to hold Josh back a little bit and just manage his training loads, because as you can imagine he’s pretty eager to get back out there.”

Fischer McAsey missed the Round 9 SANFL loss to Sturt with a leg injury but has resumed running and will be tested at training this week.

“Fish completed a really good running session on Monday and we’re hoping he’ll be able to train on Wednesday and be available, but he’ll be a test to see how he pulls up from the session yesterday,” Burgess said.

Jordon Butts has also exited the AFL’s concussion protocol and will be available to take on the Suns.

“Jordon has gone through the concussion protocol and has passed everything so he’ll be available to play this weekend,” Burgess said.

Mid-season recruit Brett Turner is making good progress from a foot injury and is expected to be integrated into training next week with a view to being available in the next fortnight.

Injury list as of Tuesday, June 14:

Brett Turner (foot) 2 weeks
Fischer McAsey (leg) test
