Managing an achilles injury, building up training load next week and full training sometime after that.
Lively forward Jake Stringer was also sent for scans late last week, with the 26-year-old managing an Achilles injury during pre-season.

“Jake presented with some soreness in his Achilles area last week, which is something our high performance team have been managing diligently this pre-season,” Mahoney said.

“He will continue to build his loads from next week onwards and we’re confident he will integrate back into full training over the coming weeks.”

Not difficult - he’ll be absolutely fine unless he gets injured. Same as most players, he’s just one of those more prone to putting on weight. It’s all set up in preseason and he’s obviously got fit this year.

He obviously wasn’t in a great headspace when he got to Essendon and was battling back from there.

Continuing to build loads, some game time over the next couple of weeks
“Jake Stringer had a bit of an interruption to his pre-season early on, but the last three to four weeks we’ve turned a corner and been able to get some really good loads into him. He’s pulled up really well, so we’re expecting him to continue to build his loads,” Murphy said.

“We want him to come back at 90 - 100 per cent fitness, so we’ve set him up to have success for the whole season. We’ll see him play game time over the next couple of weeks.”
