Any word on Preuss' shoulder injury?

Watch the song after the game, he couldn't lift his arm to put around Spargo.   And hes about 3 feet taller than Charlie.

With our injury luck this season Im expecting the worst.

These sorts of post really frustrate me.

Do you know anything about Docherty's injury, or his fitness, or his rehab, or Carlton's medical team?

Do you have any idea at all about how his rehab would have gone, if all else was equal, at our club?

Does him running laps at four months post-ACL mean he's going to make some sort of remarkable recovery?

Or are you just posting garbage?

Good get. 

I don’t understand why it took so long for the club to play the Gawn/Preuss card. I think that as long as they both remain for, the combination will be potent against many of the other teams.

It appeared like he jarred the AC Joint...  He tried to bump the opponent from a bent over prone position.   Not smart from Preussy because he could not brace his body properly from that position.

He'll play sore for a while I reckon.

Injury List

Oscar McDonald | Concussion – Available

“Oscar has no issues after that concussion. He trained today and will be available for selection this week.”

Neville Jetta | Knee – Test

“Nev trained the day before the game and trained really well, but just pulled up a little bit sore and was a little bit swollen in the knee. He made a really good team decision – he didn’t want to let the team down. He was touch and go but obviously missed, so we’ll be hopeful for him this week.”

Jay Lockhart | Back – Test

“Jay just got a back spasm at training the day before the game coming off the flight, so again, he was a lot better the morning of the game, but we wanted to take a fit 100 percent team in, so Jay was left out. But he’s turned around really quickly over the weekend so he should be available.”

Braydon Preuss | Shoulder – Test

“He came back and had a scan on the shoulder which showed there wasn’t too much structural damage. We’ll review him today and monitor him during the week, but we hope he’ll be able to get out there on the weekend.”

Jordan Lewis | Hamstring – Test

“He did a big session on Friday back in Melbourne with the rehab group. He’ll have a normal week this week and look to make himself available.”

Kade Kolodjashnij | Concussion – TBA

“We will continue to monitor Kade after his head knock against Essendon. He has some lingering concussion symptoms and these will need to clear before we have more clear timeframes on his return.”

Steven May | Groin – 2-4 weeks

“Steven had his first couple of running sessions last week, so we’ll look to keep increasing his volume this week.”

Aaron vandenBerg | Foot – 4-6 weeks  

“Vanders had a run outside last week. He pulled up a little bit sore, so we’ll review him today, but hopefully we can keep progressing his rehab this week.”

Joel Smith | Groin – 4-6 weeks

“Joel’s actually due to run today. He’s been gradually getting better and better, so we’ll look to start his re-loading program today.”

Jake Lever | Knee – 6 weeks

“Jake’s due to do essentially his first full session with the group on Wednesday. He’s almost ticked off all of his rehab – still needs to do a bit of contact work – but essentially he’s going to need a month of full training with the group before he plays, and that’ll start soon.”

Mitch Hannan | Knee – 6 weeks

“Mitch has been slowly increasing his speed and agility in rehab and is doing a lot of ball work. He’ll probably do the session the day before the game on Friday with the main group, so that’s a really big step forward for Mitch. Again, he’s going to need a decent block of training before he plays, but he’s certainly heading in the right direction.”

Jay Kennedy Harris | Knee – 8-10 weeks

“Jay had his first run outside on Friday and felt really good. That was really pleasing as we weren’t really sure how he’d go, but importantly he’s pulled up well, so we’ll start to ramp his volume up this week.”

Guy Walker | Shoulder – Indefinite

Aaron Nietschke | Knee – Season

VDB and Smith were 4-6 a 4 weeks ago and haven’t improved an inch. Doubtful either one will have a meaningful impact this year if this continues

I really hope Preuss plays again this week and isn't already out injured already. Would love to see him play on the G.

I thought groin injuries were usually a 4 week injury. It’s already been 4 and Smith is a 4-6 which means he’s potentially going to miss half the season with a groin injury???

Frustrating that May and Vandenberg appear to have had set backs, AvB could really make in impact if given the opportunity.

Very concerned for the future of AVB and KK. Not good news. 

May’s lack of pre season fitness is really not helping his recovery it seems. Another massive disappointment.

Vandenberg is a worry, he is an important cog in the machine, was it his ankle that kept him out for so long previously? Is it another "hotspot" that we seem prone too?

Last year i rated smiths defensive speed  to close opposition fwd entries, but closed my eyes when he was to dispose of the  ball, until his last 2 games he found time to execute. He seems to get injured every time he just starts to click.

KK TBA. Really? Weren't we told his concussion issues were neck related? Didn't he have mild symptoms after the Geelong game and good to go this week?Apparently not.Sold an absolute lemon.

I would say,  from the little I know of things Re May,  that his attitude toward coming into his first Pre-Season with his new club,  imo shows his laconic attitude toward his physical preparation generally.

So I'm suggesting he might never have had himself in true elite condition and fitness.  So this is good and bad. in a sense his body could be underdeveloped ??? cardiovascular... maybe some of our Physio Doctor types could share here ?

 

But on the positive side, he could make big strides with a change of attitude and of desire,  and dedication to improve his body and physical condition...  similarly,  I put Tracca in a similar boat.

VDB is the big worry I’d say due to his previous issues.  I think originally they said 2 weeks and now it has blown out considerably. 

I’m not overly concerned with May, I think they are just putting some extra work into him to set his season up. 

I’m sure I heard Goody say that Lever is only a few weeks away.

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS).

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt
