Not yet 100%, return indefinite (as noted above).

The club is continuing to take a patient approach to James Stewart’s rehabilitation, with the key forward failing to reach the expected mark after the mid-season bye.

“We were tracking James with his groin injury towards returning after the bye. He hasn’t quite got to 100 per cent and we’re not going to put him out there until he does,” Crow said.

“That leaves (his return date) a little indefinite, but we’re just going to keep plugging away, taking good advice on how to get that groin right up to full capacity before playing him in an AFL match.”

Taken from this weeks injury update:
The club continues to take a patient approach to forward James Stewart’s rehabilitation from a groin injury.

“James is just completing his groin rehabilitation. We’re not prepared to put him out there until he gets that completely symptom free.

“We haven’t got to that point yet and we’ll keep going until that time.”
