The club injury report just confirmed what we already knew from the article Essendon published on Friday. He'll train with a guard in the training sessions he's allowed to participate in.
https://www.essendonfc.com.au/news/2019-05-07/dons-cleared-to-play“Mitch Brown as well with his fractured wrist, both of those players are doing as much of training as they can within limitations, and Mitch is also tracking back towards round 10.”
https://www.essendonfc.com.au/news/2019-05-14/dons-set-for-forward-boost“(Brown and Gleeson), with their different fractures, are having a specialist review this week and then we’re hoping to get the good news that they’re both then available to play the week after this.
“Both of those will be doing as much training as they can this coming week.”
Unfortunately the other end of the ground to me and the lights weren't on. Did see him walk past when he was heading into the rooms and looked in pain though, holding it gingerly.Did you see it? Anything to add?
I can't see any mention of it on the VFL Twitter account nor anywhere else. Hopefully it's not as bad as it sounds.
Brown has been really good in the 5 games he's played this year - big tank and covers lots of ground up forward always providing an option - plus 6.5 marks and 1.5 goals a game makes him a much more viable option up forward than Francis at this point in time. Bring the man in I say!
