Shai Bolton, wrist, unavailable (short to medium term)
“Shai has got a little fracture in his wrist and has had a little pin put into it last night with the surgery. It will be a short to medium-term injury. We are hoping more on the shorter term.
“In a week or so's time, we will have a better idea of what that is going to look like with his recovery.”
Shane Edwards, ankle, unavailable (medium term)
“Initially, we were fearing the worst (it could have potentially been) the old syndesmosis injury, but scans were really good and showed a significant deltoid injury, the medial ligament of the ankle.
“Shane has been in a boot… he has come out of the boot in the last 24 hours and has been walking around and feeling quite good. At this stage, we are sort of saying it is a short to medium-term injury, but it is a bit of a watch this space (because) he is feeling pretty good.
“Our fingers are crossed that it is going to be more on the shorter-term end.”
Dylan Grimes, concussion, probable
“Dylan has gone through the AFL 12-day concussion protocol and at this stage is looking really good to be available for the game on the weekend.”
Ryan Garthwaite, shoulder, unavailable (medium term)
“Back a couple of weeks, Ryan had an incident (in) the Round 1 VFL game where he subluxed his shoulder.
“Initially, it progressed quite quickly, but he has had a little bit of difficulty regaining full strength in his shoulder, and we think it is related to a little bit of a nerve issue.
“It is going to require a little bit more time, so he is in a bit of a holding pattern at the moment until he can tick off that final stage of his strength (and) get full strength back so he can absorb all of the impacts and requirements of playing the game.”
Josh Caddy, available
“Josh completed our full main training session the week before (the last VFL game) and just pulled up a little bit generally sore, and we just made a late decision not to play him in that VFL game (against Werribee) just to be absolutely sure that he was not in a position of risk.
“He has been fully training for the last week, and he is available for selection.”
