Adelaide defenders Daniel Talia and Jake Kelly have been confirmed as available for the Club’s next match against Geelong in Round 15.

Both were injured in last Thursday’s win over Richmond but have since made strong progress.

Crows Science and Medical Services Coordinator Steve Saunders said Talia and Kelly suffered heavy contusions to the thigh and lower leg respectively.

“Daniel and Jake have responded well to management and will be ready,” Saunders said.

“They are now training at speed and completing all prescribed training doses required.”

UPDATE: Jenkins undergoes scans

Forward Tom Lynch is also on track to play against the Cats after missing the past two games with a calf injury.

“Tom is proving to once again be the complete professional,” Saunders said.

“He is sticking to his daily rehab plan which is structured to have him ready for the Geelong game.”

Lachlan Murphy, who had his three front teeth dislodged against the Tigers, is also available for selection after being thoroughly reviewed by dental specialists.

Adelaide has the bye this weekend before playing Geelong on Friday, June 28.
