That for real Chelly? Kent another 4 weeks??

I wonder, he'll be elsewhere, for the start of 2019 ?

We have to trade our way back into 2018, and we also want some free agents.

 

They're not giving them away, these days.

interesting that they say six weeks for avb yet say he'll be playing after the bye; which is in four weeks?

4 to 6... club media speak for...  "not sure really but if it makes you feel any better"

Actually club media speak for "longer than a week or two, but shorter than a LTI or half a season".

Kent just can’t get a good run at it, Salem similar. Weideman seems like the next and also Viney

“Indefinite” almost literally means “not sure”.

To be fair to the club, they were pretty accurate with their assesment of TMac and JV.  (almost to the week)

Misson’s injury assessments 

Dean Kent (hamstring) – 3 weeks
“Kenty’s going really well. He’s doing some good solid running work and is starting to do some skills. He’ll play in and around the bye week.”

Mitch King (elbow) – available
“Mitch has had an elbow [injury] and has been going very well. He’s been doing a lot of contact in rehab, and he joined the group today for training. He’ll be available this week.”

Corey Maynard (hip) – indefinite
“Corey is progressing with that hip. He’s starting to run fast and is doing a bit more work in rehab. We’re not putting a timeframe on him.”

Pat McKenna (hamstring) – indefinite
“Patty is starting to run at 90 per cent and we’re starting to increase his agility and one-on-one skills, but we’re not putting a definitive timeframe on him.”

Aaron vandenBerg (ankle) – 4-6 weeks
“Vanders is going really well. We’re seeing the type of athlete that we’ve come to know and love Aaron to be – he’s powerful, explosive, but he also has a good tank. He’s really showing that in rehab, so we’re looking forward to seeing him just after the bye.”

Sam Weideman (calf) – 1 week
“Weids unfortunately just had a minor calf strain at training last Thursday. He actually did the whole session, but we felt it was too risky to put him in for the game. We’re going to look after him by not pushing him to play this week on a short turnaround. We think he’ll definitely be available this week.”

Gee would love to see AVB play some football this year. Has had an awful run with injuries. You would think they would probably bring him on slowly and it would be predominantly VFL football for the back half of the season. Missons's comments on his tank and that he's still got all his attributes is really promising.

On a side note I was thinking if Vander's does eventually come back for AFL call up at some point our tall forward depth is pretty strong in: Hogan, TMac, Weid, T-Smith and Pederson.

If Lever and/or Oscar were to get injured our tall backline depth is a little thinner and certainly less proven. Keilty, J-Smith and Petty would be the backups with Wagner being a tad undersized but decent in the air. I wonder if worst came to worst whether they would swing Tom Mcdonald back if they had to. I think the ruck and key back development at Casey is going to be crucial this season for added depth in the near future down back.

Where do you see him fitting? There are a few ahead of him in various roles right now: Tyson as inside mid, garlett as a small forward, if garlett pushes back in for one of the mid forwards, they'll be there too. VanDemon plays strong overhead but Pedo and Weid/Smith are playing well. I feel he plays a similar role to Tracc, but with a better engine. 

When he broke into the scene he got to play almost anywhere because we were terrible but what will his role be when he returns, and who will he be trying to push out?

I think you're probably right about boat and sailing, and looking back he only averaged 15 disposals in his 28 games, im wondering if i remember him better for his effort than his output. I think Brayshaw's rise has made things hard, pushing Tyson out and putting VDB down the end of the line. 

That being said, I personally think he had more upside than Maynard, who got games this year.  Similiar hard at it inside mid but with the additional bow strings of strong over head and knows where the goals are. 

He has had a run of injuries over 3.5 years though: shoulder, hamstring, ankle, hip, heel stress fracture, ankle again. Maybe it just isn't meant to be.

Kent will play in the bye week? Perfect conditions for him with the opposition at home with their feet up playing Playstation. I hope he kicks 3000 goals. No excuses.
