Injury update: Round 16

Dr Jones & Partners Injury Update: R16 Matt Hass gives an update on all things injury ahead of round 16.

Adelaide could see the return of three injured Crows this weekend with Tom Lynch (calf), Wayne Milera Junior (back) and Cam Ellis-Yolmen (shin) all facing fitness tests.

All three will make their case for selection during Wednesday’s main training session in the hope of pulling on the tricolours for Showdown 47.

“Tom’s got a few boxes to tick in main training this week to pass his fitness test,” Crows General Manager of High Performance Matt Hass said.

“We’re hopeful he will do so, but if he doesn’t we’re confident he’ll be ready for the following weekend.”

Hass said Milera and Ellis-Yolmen had both improved significantly over the past week.

“Wayne will be tested in main training but we’re confident he’ll be available,” Hass said.

“Very similar with Cam, again he will train the main training session and we expect him to play.”

Co-captain Taylor Walker will be available to play after overcoming a minor strain to his right elbow.

Forward Josh Jenkins (knee) continues to make significant progress after completing running sessions last Thursday, Saturday and Monday.

“Josh has commenced training with the group, participating in higher intensity drills,” Hass said.

“This has given us confidence that he’s fast approaching his return to football.”

Hass said Ned McHenry was nearing his return after aggravating his lower back prior to the bye, but needed to complete a full week of training before being available.

PREVIEW: Adelaide v Port Adelaide

Midfielder Myles Poholke will miss this weekend with a calf injury he sustained in the SANFL Crows’ clash with Sturt on Saturday.

“He’ll need further assessment later in the week, when a time frame on his return to play will become clearer,” Hass said.

Hass confirmed Shane McAdam would be available this weekend after suffering a minor head knock in the final quarter of the SANFL.
