Welcome to the Round 19 Injury Update brought to you by AIA Vitality.
Versatile swingman Billy Frampton has a quad cork sustained in the third quarter of Saturday’s game against Fremantle. It's too early to tell whether he'll be available for selection but we'll look to provide an update on Frampton closer to the Pies’ trip to Adelaide.
Darcy Cameron will be assessed ahead of the clash against Port Adelaide. He completed a solid running session on last weekend after missing Round 18. He trained early this week with the squad and he is expected to complete full training later this week and hopefully be available for selection this weekend. He'll be assessed later in the week.
Hard working key forward Brody Mihocek has shown really positive signs in his rehab process after injuring his hamstirng. He'll return to full training this week and his availability for selection will be determined depending on how he manages those sessions.
Nathan Kreuger looks set to return to action this weekend following his concussion in the VFL. He'll be available for selection this weekend.
In positive news, Will Hoskin-Elliott has given the all clear after injuring his hand against the Western Bulldogs. The Club will see how he functions throughout the week when it comes to ball handling and tackling. Given the nature of the injury, the Club will take no risks with Will and will ease him back into training before assessing whether he'll be available for selection this week or next.
Charlie Dean will be returning to training in the next week or so as he prepares for a big pre-season.
