No real update or confirmation on what his injury actually is... A real shame would've played a huge role in us making finals this year had he been available.Ben Jacobs will sit out the remainder of the season, allowing him time to overcome ongoing health issues.
The midfielder will be given the rest of the year to get his body right with the aim of being back for the start of the 2020 pre-season.
Jacobs explained his symptoms began as a result of a “whiplash” incident against Brisbane in Round 11 last season, and since then he has suffered from neck pain, headaches, blocked ears and pressure in his head.
“We treated it like a concussion for the first four or five weeks … [then] I had a sinus operation … and I burnt a nerve off in my neck," Jacobs said.
“It could be an accumulation of a lot of things."
Just sit a ounce down in front of him and tell him to finish the bag.I reckon jam a few grams of quality Colombian up there and that'll give him confidence back in his body.
For about 45 minutes, but its a start.

Get well soon Ben, hopefully we'll see you in a north jumper round 1 2120.
He's wants another contract.He's confident he can get back.......
Not heaps relevant to Wells, but definitely injury prone and his foot injury history for sure. Wells had heaps of soft tissue injuries where Jacobs hasn’t. Jacobs was fitter too imoHe's confident he can get back, but yeah he's moving into D Wells territory.
We're not being hurt keeping him and I'm sure if there's little chance of him playing again he'll get moved on. There's a new sheriff in town as you'd all know.
