Wouldn't be like Mark Stevens to get a couple of Melbourne players mixed up, now would it?

I was standing next to Mark Stevens about this time last year during a training session and he was dead set trying to turn players leaving the field to get a rub down into some newsworthy injury.

"Zoom in on <player> over there <cameraman>, I reckon he's done a hammy. Yep, yep, he has. He just touched it. Get a close shot please"

Nek minnit...

Player runs back on and resumes training.....

Presumably Stevens responds by creating a story about the club's miracle team of health professionals fixing strained hamstrings on the spot.

Dave Misson’s December pre-season update

“Nathan Jones: Nathan is back in the main group, after he just had a minor calf. It wasn’t quite a strain, but we’re pretty precautionary in pre-season, but he joined in [with the main group] on Friday.

Dean Kent: Kenty had that shoulder [injury] after the Darwin game [against the Adelaide Crows in round 17, this year]. He’s pretty close to starting some contact. He’s done a lot of running and is pretty fit.

Tom McDonald: He had surgery on each ankle and is going very well. He’s done a lot of running and is starting to get into some pretty intense agility work, and football work. He’ll probably jump into the main group after Christmas, but he’s going well.

Harrison Petty: Ten days ago, Harrison fractured his elbow, tripping over a wire fence, so both of those guys have got a little bit of time in rehab. Bayley and Oskar are going pretty well and they’ve come in and they’re pretty sharp.

Joel Smith: Joel’s towards the end of his rehab, with that fracture he had with his knee. He’s looking like the Joel Smith of old – really athletic and dynamic, so [we’re] pretty pleased with how he’s going.

Tim Smith: Tim had that navicular stress fracture. He’s done a couple of weeks of running outside and is going really well. He’s started to do run throughs and a little bit of agility.

Charlie Spargo: Charlie had a shoulder reconstruction during the year and he’s not far away from getting into some contact.

Aaron vandenBerg: Vanders has been a little bit slow, just with that foot [injury], but he’s probably had his best week in rehab this week. We’re really hopeful that he can start to progress a little bit quicker.

Jack Viney: Jack’s going pretty well, as expected with the [foot] injury that he had. He’s starting to do more, and more on his legs, and being Jack, he’s working really, really hard off legs and in the gym.

Sam Weideman: Weids had ankle surgery in the off-season, so he’s progressing really well. He’s doing some good running on the AlterG [Anti-Gravity] Treadmill and he’ll start running outside next week.”

As long as we don’t get them between March and September.

Hoping Misson can have him up and ready for Round 1 to keep those Cats ferals at bay.

Injury list - 26 February, 2018

Jeff Garlett (rib)
Dean Kent (shoulder)
Jordan Lewis (calf)
Joel Smith (left)
Dom Tyson (calf)
Aaron vandenBerg (foot)
Jack Viney (foot)

Concerns for Melbourne out of their win over North Melbourne on Saturday with veteran Jordan Lewis straining his calf. Lewis, who was one of the best on ground in the first quarter, was forced from the field in the second term and played no further part. The Demons are confident the former Hawk will be fit for Round 1 but are likely to take a cautious approach with the 31-year-old. 

Dom Tyson also suffered a calf injury, this time at training, and didn’t play against the Kangaroos. 

Coach Simon Goodwin has declared Jack Viney a definite starter in Round 1 despite developing stress fractures in his foot and could return for the club’s second pre-season game against St Kilda on March 8. 

Jeff Garlett (rib) and Dean Kent (shoulder) weren’t considered for the clash against North Melbourne. 

Aaron VandenBerg had foot surgery in June last year and is still a while away.”

I only noticed that line:)

If the coach is that confident in Viney playing - I'm on board!!

He should be on there too considering he missed JLT 1. The list was from the article.

Thanks for that..  I've heard nothing about the injury, other than a brief comment from Goody in his post match presser where he said Nev should be right for JLT2..  Obviously nothing too serious.

Mitch Hannan had a knee bandage on after the game on Saturday (the elastic variety) but guessing it was nothing to worry about as he is not listed.

That's not a bad list of injuries to have right now...nothing to serious

AVB will struggle to get another game I believe, his recovery is just too slow, he must have done serious damage originally.

Would like to see this list down to 2 or 3 players. Add Mckenna and Jetta and you have 10 players ... around 25% of the list.

They are in the main minor but if we are to succeed this year the injury list is a KPI in itself.

In theory it could be down to VdB, Smith, McKenna and Viney by JLT 2. That would be great.

Lewis was the victim of a crude tackle from behind against Roos which was dangerous and went unnoticed. I wouldn't be surprised if he is suffering from that more than a 'calf'.

What is up with Frost?

 

Nothing. Other players are ahead of him.

Main knock on Frost was his fitness - that other teams had worked out that they could run him around for 2 or 3 quarters and then run off him once he'd knocked himself out. Whether the reason he hasn't been included is (just) because of that, impossible to know. He's probably going to need one of Lever or Oscar Mac to go down to get a game.

Nevs not injured, he did both the International Series and AFLX so they rested him because he has already done enough work load this preseason

Frost simply has too many question marks to his game, not sure why that’s not obvious to some posters. Especially @Drunkn167 who has termed him a “gun”.

His best go is in the backline. But Oscar has had an enormous summer and is looking solid. I wouldn’t be surprised if Frost missed against St Kilda either, unless we were to rest Oscar/Lever.

McKenna the forgotten man?

I'm hoping it's because he's back in full training.

Can anyone confirm?

McKenna, Vandenberg & Kent - what a waste of list space. Hopefully Tyson and Garlett are on track for the St Kilda game.
