As the title suggests, we need a fresh injury thread, for the fresh injury year.
At the moment we have Howe and Mihocek on the sidelines, JDG missing a week of training as of today, and Will Kelly with an unknown calf complaint. If anyone has an update on Kelly that would be great. Hoping Jen2310 spotted him at training today if she could peel her eyes from Nick Daicos!

Hopefully this thread is quiet this year. With moving on most of our perennial long term injury prone players there should be a marked improvement in player availability.

Yeah no sight of Kelly or Reef today. We don't actually know their injuries. Nobody really has mentioned Kelly apart from a reporter saying he left the track with a trainer, which he did.
As for reef.. all we know is he had scans. Hopefully its not a tendon.

Coincidentally two other Collingwood players - Mark Keane and recruit Reef McInnes - have both suffered the same finger tendon injury this off-season.

Looks like Reef's finger is the tendon..

For something thats meant to be rare.. we have 3 players in 12 months with it lol

We've had the theory of the ground being too hard leading to soft tissue leg injuries. Has anyone looked at whether we're over-infalting the balls?

To be honest that’s not a joke. He’s been under so much scrutiny lately his mental health would be so low. Never joke about mental health.
I wasn’t, I was referring to the reputational harm he has been inflicting upon himself.

nothing to do with mental health, nothing to see here.
