THERE’S some unfortunate news on the injury front ahead of Round 16, as Melbourne could be without three players for its clash with the Dockers.
After pulling up sore from Thursday night’s game, Angus Brayshaw (foot) and Nathan Jones (quad) will be on the sidelines for the next few weeks, while James Harmes is also in some doubt to play on Monday due to hamstring tightness.
On a positive note, the Dees will benefit from the inclusion of Michael Hibberd who will return from an ankle injury for the must-win battle at Cazaly’s Stadium.
Marty Hore is also back to full fitness after overcoming a quad injury, while Tom Sparrow (collarbone) and James Jordon (finger) are both on track to put their hand up for next Saturday’s game at The Gabba.
While time is running out in a compressed 2020 fixture, Luke Jackson’s hamstring is recovering well, and he could return in the last round of the home and away season.
Watch below as performance manager Darren Burgess provides an update on the club’s full injury list.
