Director of Football Geoff Walsh provides the latest from the medical room at the Holden Centre, thanks to Blackmores.

Latest update: 18 April 2017

Brayden Sier (eye socket) - test
"In the VFL match, Brayden Sier had a bit of an incident and copped a whack in his eye. It may have fractured his eye socket. We're getting some specialist advice on that today (Tuesday). Depending on where the fracture is, it may not be something that keeps him out. We'll see how he is later in the week in terms of his availability. He's had a bit of a bad luck run Brayden, but hopefully he's over that and he gets a good report from the surgeon.

Tom Langdon (knee) - 2-3 weeks
"Tom Langdon has finished his course of injections and is ready to do a bit more serious training. Again, it's too early to say when Tom will resume. We'd like to see him get two to three weeks of solid training under his belt and then we can make an assessment on where he's at."

Ben Sinclair (hamstring) - 10-12 weeks
"Benny Sinclair is the other one, our long-term hamstring. Ben is running at the moment and doing some good work on his legs. We'd expect that around our bye, which is a few months away, that around that time Ben will resume."

Ben Crocker (hamstring) - available
"Ben Crocker was a late withdrawal from the VFL team last week with some hamstring soreness. Pleasingly, he's reported pretty clean this morning and yesterday. We'd expect that Ben is available for selection next week."
