Jack Viney will Return to the Track in January.

Recommended Posts

Looks like they're easing him back in after 6 months off. Hopefully that means they've learnt from previous foot injuries at the club destroying careers.

We need him fit and firing during finals next year.

Yeh, the thing to remember about Trenners of course is that he actually has fully recovered from the foot injury. It's his loss of pace that has done him in. Who knows if that permanent loss of speed is due to the injury or just his natural pace.

Cannot spell cow but can lift one.

 

Nah, love it, and awesome motivating in his ear. From decades of lifting, I can attest to the benefits of the mob screaming in your ear when you are at your maximum.

Also noticed that a 'positive training environment' was mentioned in that post.  

Regardless of the boot camp fiasco, I still believe we are in very good hands at the moment.

IMV mismanaged throughout this whole episode with his Foot injury last year. Should have taken rest of year of and rehab done without the view to get him back ASAP. 

He is in all sorts, Mark my words!!

Agreed with the first paragraph, the second was classic PF hyperbole.

He definitely came back early from the injury.  Whether a couple of extra weeks of would have helped, who knows.  We just have to hope the issue doesn't linger.

It has now been put back to 'early next month' ie early Feb.

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/teams/melbourne/jack-viney-on-track-to-take-on-geelong-in-round-1-as-he-recovers-from-nasty-foot-injury/news-story/aabb7b0156b9db0b954365c33e765d33

We play our first JLT game on Feb 24 and he may be 'put in cotton wool' for the preseason games.  Round 1 of the season vs Geelong is March 25. 

I would love to share the club's optimism that he will be ready for round 1 but gee it is hard to see that happening with virtually no preseason.

At this stage I'm hoping he will be able to recover full stop. Foot injuries have a habit of causing reoccurring issues.

The club was Misson in action when it came to managing players returns from injury last season. It cost us badly and it angers me that it could now cause our most influential player to be out for a fair chunk of the year and also have potential long term impacts.

The whole club seems to have taken a step forward, but the physical preparation of the players has gone backwards. Time for a change

Agree with you PF, it very worrying.

What is worse is that he was not the only player returning from injury last year that was mismanaged and it cost us.

I have absolutely no confidence that Jack will be right for round 1, and little confidence that he will make a meaningful contribution this year. This is just one delay / setback after another, some six months or so after the original injury.

The club can periodically release little fluff pieces such as this story as often as it likes, to kid us into believing that all is well, but it has no credibility on this issue. 

As I have posted previously on other threads, this was abysmal player and injury management by the club and it will hurt us big time this year, as it hurt us big time last year.

As far as I can see/read, we still haven’t been told what the injury actually was.  This article refers to it as a ‘setback’.

As far as I am aware the timetable was always for him to start running in January. He's doing that. Looks like he will build his running up through January and with that month of running under his belt will join the main group in February. According to Saty he told him he was going to schedule. 

Not sure why you are all so concerned. The setback in round 21 was a stress fracture to a different part of his foot close to his toes brought on by his foot compensating for the original injury. Doubt that could have been predicted. The original injury was ok at that point. They are being super conservative this time to make sure no other stress fractures occur. 

Don't forget they did get Trenners foot right in the end and as a result probably know more about foot injuries than a lot of others. 

I will also be a bit surprised if he plays round 1 if he's only joining the main group in Feb but I'll only start panicking if his foot plays up again from now on. So far so good from what I am reading.

Joel selwood was in rehab all of 2017, preseason, played all year had a good year, I find it stupid how some people think you can't get fit swimming and riding, all which works on a person lungs, he is running, he does not need to train in main group if he is running, then he will make a impact this season, if he is not running then he will not.

Correct. The club or JV has never said what the actual injury was post the original plantar fascia.

Viney will be fine, for Round 1 following a successful pre=season. My concern might be that he may not see the next season through to be plagued by such injuries in the longer-term. Viney, himself, almost dictated his return and this may well be the cause of any unanticipated delays or interruptions to his 'normal' season - yet he is, at the same time - largely invincible. Best wishes, Jay.
