Midfielder Matt Crouch will commence his rehabilitation from groin surgery at the Club this week in a bid to return to the field towards the end of the season.

Crouch had successful surgery to stabilise a tendon to alleviate persistent pain on his right groin last Friday and has been recovering at home.

The 26-year-old is expected to miss 8-10 weeks before being available for selection.

"We're very hopeful Matt will be available for selection later in the season," Crows Head of Football Adam Kelly said.

"Given that surgery has just been undergone, it's difficult to put a timeline on it, but early indication is somewhere around 10 weeks."

Tom Lynch is continuing his rehabilitation from surgery on his toe with cross training and weights in the gym, as is Wayne Milera (knee) who had a 12-week surgical review on Monday and is progressing well in his recovery.

"Wayne Milera is progressing really well," Kelly said.

"We anticipate he'll be able to advance to running on the AlterG treadmill in about four weeks with a return to running on ground in about eight weeks."

Daniel Talia's return has been delayed by a week due to illness.

"Daniel's suggested return date hasn't changed from last week, he had some illness which kept him away from training," Kelly said.

"He missed some of that training load he'll need to return to play so it remains at 3-4 weeks."
