Can't really gauge anything off that. I know Crow said he was in the final stages of trying to build strength in the ankle so he can turn and slow down quickly but hopefully he's training full tilt by the end of the month.

Looks like progress to me, until that I had only seen straight line running. Might only be light lateral movement, but it's still a positive.

Definitely looks like Gleeson will be a mid season AFL return and will probably end up doing a month of VFL or thereabouts. Its unfortunate but its important to be patient with these chronic ankle injuries. I just wish that Redman had been getting a full preseason in his absence. Hopefully someone like Ridley or perhaps even a Guelfi type can step up. Ambrose might even sneak his way in to play on mid sized players considering we probably have enough taller intercept types with Hooker, Hurley and Francis.

Lets hope he comes good. We need trade bait and you can never have enough 4th round picks. We have more than enough HBF's.
