MFC injury list - 2015

Recommended Posts

Hunt is training so hopefully he is able to play VFL in a week or so. And where is ANB? Is he ready to go all of a sudden?

ANB played in the Casey 2's last week and went ok on 50% playing time from reports.

Yes good point CHF he did play the development league and hopefully Hunt can gear up this week. Any idea how ANB went?

Interesting comments in the Herald Sun Barometer: We look at every team after Round 4 and how they are shaping up in The Barometer

MELBOURNE

INJURIES

Jayden Hunt (back) 1-2 weeks

Christian Petracca (knee) season

Jack Trengove (foot) season

Sam Frost (foot) 4-6

Dean Kent (hamstring) 10-12 weeks

Neville Jetta (concussion) Test

ON THE BLOCK: Its hard to see Paul Roos making any forced changes after such a spirited win. Dean Kent will miss 10 to 12 weeks after he elected to have surgery on his injured hamstring. Jack Watts lifted his intensity after a disappointing performance against the Crows and laid four tackles along with 14 disposals and a goal.

ON THE CUSP: Jack Grimes was named best on ground for Casey in their loss to the Bulldogs, while Jimmy Toumpas gathered 28 touches and applied seven tackles. Toumpas for Kent would make sense, while Grimes has certainly done enough at VFL level.

ADAM BALDWINS FORECAST: While Melbournes win on Friday night surprised the competition, those within the walls of Demonland were quietly confident going into the match. The Demons now have the attacking weapons to compliment their pressure game and made Richmond look second rate. Jesse Hogan, Aaron vandenBerg, Christian Salem, Ben Jacobs and Viv Michie have changed the look of the side and even the most cynical Dees must acknowledge the worm has turned. Fremantle is one of the form sides of the competition, but as St Kilda proved last year, it can be done.

I don't know who this Ben Jacobs is but Ben Newton says "hello".

Not to mention Adam Baldwin reading these forums ...

Ouch! 'Rookie Mitch White missed last rounds VFL due to a toe injury. He had an accident on the gym, where he dropped a 50kg dumbbell on his toe, which didnt tickle, he said'.

Understatement!

Extract from Misson report: Jetta to miss more than one.

In summary:

Sam Frost (fractured toe) 8 weeks

Jayden Hunt (back) 2 weeks

Neville Jetta (concussion) 1 week

Dean Kent (hamstring) 12 weeks

Christian Petracca (knee) season

Jack Trengove (foot) season

Jack Viney (fractured fibula) 2-3 weeks

Mitch White (toe) available

Looks like Frost will be out longer than expected. Impressed that White is available after dropping that 50kg on his toe!

Jetta set to miss again

Can't be too careful I suppose.

Hopefully Neville pulls up ok for the Hawks clash next week.

Melbourne injury list: round six

Chris Dawes (calf) – test
Sam Frost (toe) – 4-6 weeks
Jayden Hunt (back) – available
Neville Jetta (concussion) – test
Dean Kent (hamstring) – 10 weeks
Christian Petracca (knee) – season
Jack Trengove (foot) – season
Jack Viney (fibula) – 2 weeks

Have to say I'm a bit confused with the concussion guidelines. Didn't that Adelaide player (forget who) get knocked out, carted off the field and then played the next week against us a few weeks ago? My understanding is that they judge the recovery by doing the concussion test that is judged on responses by the player taken from his baseline answers, is that correct? If so I think you may need to be look at Nev's baseline data?

Must have been a big whack.

No wonder Footballers from the 60's-90's are now having problems.

Nev's had a handful of concussions since Christmas, hence the conservative approach. It's not from just the one incident.

I thought Roos said a couple of weeks ago that Jetta had sufferers a couple of knocks over a short timeframe.

Given Bail and Jetta seem to get concussed running through the banner, why don't either of them wear a helmet? Just crazy.

Probably because there's no evidence to say they prevent concussion.

Thanks guys. I find that really surprising. From memory Jetta's recent one was Howe sailing through for a mark and his knee glanced Jetta across the temple. Would have thought some padding there would have helped enormously.

I think the issue is more the "wobbling" of the brain rather than the actual impact, this is why a helmet may not help as you would still get the wobble if you know what I mean

A helmet would make the impact longer though which would decrease the impulse. Then surely the brain would be 'wobbled' less?

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
