Defender Tom Doedee will miss this weekend’s clash with the Western Bulldogs due to concussion.

Following Sunday’s win over St Kilda, Doedee presented with symptoms of delayed concussion and was placed in the AFL’s protocols.

“Tom reported some symptoms after the game on the weekend and we put him through a concussion test which he didn’t pass,” Crows High Performance Manager Darren Burgess said.

“So as a result of that he won’t play this week against the Bulldogs and we will monitor him through those protocols.”

Ruckman Kieran Strachan has also been placed in the AFL’s concussion protocols after being injured in the SANFL loss to Sturt on Saturday.

“Kieran was involved in a contest in the SANFL that resulted in him being concussed, he’s in the protocols now and unavailable this week, and we will monitor his progress through those protocols,” Burgess said.


Defender Andrew McPherson is expected to be sidelined for up to three months after suffering a quad injury in the SANFL.

“Andrew strained his quad in the first quarter against Sturt, it’s a pretty serious one and he’s likely to be out for an indefinite period of time,” Burgess said.

“It’s unfortunate for Moose who was starting to string some pretty good games together.

“He won’t be able to do too much over the next two weeks and then will complete some off legs training, hopefully running in four or five weeks’ time and then we’ll progress him from there.”

Forward Shane McAdam continues his recovery from a quad injury and is training with the main group.

“Shane is fully training at the moment and is doing everything that we’re asking. Because he’s missed so much training he needs to get a bank of work and then complete some end-stage quad kicking and once he does that he will be available to play.”
