Rory Sloane has re-injured his foot

Adelaide midfielder Rory Sloane has re-injured his troublesome foot and will be sidelined for at least a fortnight.

Sloane had scans and consulted a surgeon on Thursday following an innocuous incident during this week’s main training session.

The Crows vice-captain has suffered a mild strain to the Lisfranc ligament in his right foot, which is slightly different to the injury that has kept him sidelined recently.

Head of Football Brett Burton said advice from the specialist was to embark upon a period of rest.

“At this stage, Rory will miss the next two games before we reassess his situation,” Burton said.

“Surgery is not required but our medical advice suggests the best course of action is to rest and recover.

“Rory is one of the most professional and diligent players at the Club and will do all he can to return as quickly as possible.”
