Riley Knight remains the only Crow unavailable for selection in Saturday’s Round Two clash with Port Adelaide.

Every other player, including Tom Doedee, will be available for Showdown 48, Crows Head of Science and Medicine Steve Saunders has confirmed.

“The list availability is looking really good,” Saunders said.

“It’s nice to see after the challenges that COVID-19 has thrown us over the period, that the boys have stuck to their programs well and completed a good body of work.”

Knight underwent minor Achilles surgery in March and is expected to need another “three to four weeks” before being available for selection.

“Riley had a little bit of a flare up post-Achilles surgery a few weeks ago,” Saunders said.

“He’s now been back into a really good volume of running and football conditioning for the last two weeks.

 “We think he needs about another three to four weeks of work though before we can start to press to make him available to play.”

Doedee, who has not played since rupturing his ACL in Round One, 2019, is fully fit and available to play.

“Tom has been in great nick for a while now and he’s been completing all of the work we could ask him to complete,” Saunders said.

 “He’s done all of the match sim since the boys have returned to play and he was one that was doing an extensive amount of work during the COVID-19 break.

“I don’t think we or Tom could be any happier with the condition he’s in at the moment.”
