Weird...

I don't recall seeing an ETA last week for Caleb... Am I right in saying he was listed as 'TBC'?

He had surgery on his knee, correct? Usually I'm all over this stuff but I've been holidaying so I haven't paid as much attention as I usually do.

Good news about Bruce. I thought he'd be another week on the sidelines.

I hope they are running a special program to keep Vandermeer on the park. I remember they had to do that with Steve Kretiuk when he was constantly having soft tissue injuries. I don't know what was involved but it seemed to improve things for him.

Fingers crossed we get both Richards and Timmy back this week.

Injury report came out but Caleb not on the list????

I know he's small and easy to miss but....
The club twitter responded that he’s 2-3 weeks. Obviously an oversight on the original report.

Arthroscope is a surgery.

Not that it's our most pressing issue but is there any word on Martin? Been TBC for a long time. Crazy that he didn't consider a mid-season retirement if this injury is chronic? Was the theory that he'd be there for break glass emergency insurance if English and Sweet are both unavailable?

If you believe the relevant AFL page, Brisbane have NO injuries. Not one. A few needing 'tests' but in theory right to go.

There's one big reason some sides have good years and some don't.

They are regarded as one of the best medical/S&C teams in the industry - maybe our poor run literally every year isn’t just a coincidence?

Believe Caleb was 1-2 weeks last week, and still is now. Wouldn’t mind a simple explanation as to why, even if it’s boiler plate.

My very very limited knowledge on it is he’d have more to do with the game day operations and maybe recovery side of things, is he even full time? my issues more on the strength & conditioning side and the constant soft tissue injuries
