Get the latest from the medical room at the Holden Centre thanks to Blackmores. Director of Football Neil Balme discussed the health of the list on Tuesday 2 November. 

Adam Treloar

"He's going really well. and he’s done a lot of work. Our main objective with him is to make sure that the OP issue doesn’t reoccur. He had chronic OP last year… He’s joined in training… certainly the warm-up part of training for the first time this week. So that was a big progression for him. He’s doing a lot of work and we’re really pleased with the position that he’s in. So it’s really just a matter of progression of more work and more running needs so we’re very pleased with him."

Jeremy Howe
"Jeremy started very well. He came to the place with after having some knee surgery last year. He was going pretty well but he’s very sore in the foot. It’s a little bit of a stress reaction but we’re really pleased with how quickly he’s responded to it. He’s now starting to do the work. He would be certainly medium term but we’re very happy with the way he is. I think he might be a bit quicker than we expect."

Tyson Goldsack
"Tyson has been struggling with that tendinopathy and he has been for some time. He had surgery at the end of the season which worked pretty well. But he’s just a chronic one really. He’s just got to work through it and do enough work so that he can play. He’s medium, maybe even long term with it… we’re quite pleased with the way he’s going. It’ll take a bit of time."

Jamie Elliott
"Jamie Elliott has a minor back issue. He’s been training very well. His running has been good and his work in the gym has been very good. It’s more of a niggle than anything else. We’re trying to take the intensity out of training in the short term to allow him to settle down. But he is in our terminology a short-term problem."

Tim Broomhead
"Broomy is pretty good. He’s had a bit of a hamstring issue. It’s not a full tear, it just slowed him up a little bit. He’s joined full training so he’s certainly ready to go."

Ben Sinclair
"Sincs is another one of the longer-term ones who we’re very careful with. He’s now in good shape... He’s always had the propensity to have the soft tissue (injuries), so we’ve done a lot of work with that and now he’s joined full training as well. He should be able to steam ahead."

Tom Langdon
"Tommy had a little bit of a meniscus problem. That’s now fixed. He’s done quite a bit of work in the recovery and now he’s rejoined full training and looks as good as new. We’re really pleased with him."

Matthew Scharenberg
"Matt is long term in the true sense of the word. But we’re very pleased with the way he’s coped with the tragedy that he’s had. He’s running. He’s still a long way off but we’re very pleased with all the signs. He should be fine."

The Blackmores injury update explained
A short-term injury indicates that there is some chance a player will play in the VFL or AFL on the coming weekend, but it is more likely that they won't.

If a player has sustained a medium-term injury, it is considered that he will require more than a two weeks to return to the VFL or the AFL, but the club is unsure exactly how long it will be.

If a player has sustained a long-term injury, that means it will be more than six weeks until they play football at either VFL or AFL level.

"We normally talk about how many weeks players are going to miss, but we never know for sure," Director of Football Neil Balme explained.

"It’s always a bit of a guess. This stops us from saying two-to-three weeks, which then turns into 18 weeks, which can quite often happen."
