Following Adelaide's 32-point loss to Hawthorn on Saturday, Crows Science and Medical Services Coordinator Steve Saunders provided the following updates on Tom Doedee and Richard Douglas.

Tom Doedee

“Tom has sustained an ACL injury to his left knee. We will await MRI results and undertake specialist consultation tomorrow. We can then provide further updates.”

Richard Douglas

“Richard has sustained a right syndesmosis, or high ankle sprain in a twisting, tackling mechanism in the fourth quarter. As he sustained a similar ankle injury last year, scans will be required tomorrow and re-evaluation mid-week is necessary to better understand the extent of injury and to formulate his management plan.”
