Key defender Mark Keane is on track to be available for Round One against Gold Coast as he recovers from concussion.

Keane is progressing through the AFL’s concussion protocols after suffering a head knock in the match simulation against Port Adelaide on February 23.

Midfielder Rory Sloane continues to make progress in his recovery from eye surgery and may resume contact training in coming weeks.

Sloane had surgery on a detached retina in January and has started running, skills and strength work at the Club.

Nick Murray (knee reconstruction) and Harry Schoenberg (achilles) are also progressing in their rehabilitation from their respective surgeries last year and will be re-evaluated in coming months.

As reported earlier this week, Riley Thilthorpe will miss the start of the AFL season with a knee injury.

Thilthorpe will have an arthroscope on a meniscus tear later this week with a timeline for his return set to be confirmed.

Injury list as of Tuesday, March 5:

Riley Thilthorpe (knee) TBA

Rory Sloane (eye) re-evaluated in 1-3 weeks

Mark Keane (concussion protocol) test

Nick Murray (knee) re-evaluated mid-season

Harry Schoenberg (achilles) re-evaluated mid-season
