SCANS have confirmed that Melbourne captain Max Gawn has avoided any structural damage to his knee.

The skipper suffered a knock to his knee during Sunday’s match against St Kilda but was cleared on Tuesday and has been given the go-ahead to train this week.

In other positive news for the Dees, defender Christian Salem, who has been sidelined since Round 1, will return to training this week and will look to be available for selection in the next fortnight.

Joel Smith and Blake Howes have both successfully undergone surgery, while Michael Hibberd is continuing to progress in his rehabilitation of a calf injury.  

Unfortunately, Andy Moniz-Wakefield sustained a concussion during the VFL on Sunday and will enter the appropriate protocol period.
