"Steven’s injury is one that has improved but has also had some slight setbacks"

christ almighty, where's that bloke with the spreadsheet? he'll love this
Hi there. Am indeed a bloke and you're right, I do love this. It's what we call a 'reverse improvement' to use a Billy Birmingham quote.

Latest update above.

May is still a month away, which would make it a 2 month injury at best if he was to return straight to the seniors. Was estimated as no more than a 4 week injury at any time. More likely to be something like 10 weeks. And that is if you don't count the game he played. I still have my doubts he was actually AFL-level fit when he played, probably contributing to his injury. "Improving" though, according to the club. I'll let you decide.

*Viney is listed as 'test' but (and I'm happy to be one out on this) he's not right. For the love of all things Allah, just get him right once and for all. EDIT - according to the club he is still a week away.

Hannan seems to be on the right track, thus bucking the trend of MFC injuries.

Preuss's also seems to have been relatively straightforward. Treat with caution, demons fans.

AVB - Yeah. OK.

KK - Press in case of emergency

Joel Smith - I'll throw a couple of dollars his way to help with his legal proceedings.

JKH - Still a chance for this year.

Lever - Yeah, most likely in the last part of the year IMO. He'll need another month to get fit at least, bar any further setbacks. His I am least cynical on. EDIT - according to the club, he's playing VFL this week. Let's call it a month before he sees senior action.

Nev - thanks for the memories

Maynard - EDIT - Club says he is a week away

Where is Preuss? Do you guys expect him back this week
Personally I expect and demand he plays regardless of form, injury or any other thing in every single Melbourne game until the end of time.

It should be understood that I'm no selection expert though, and also I'm quite, quite mad

Where did you see Lever playing VFL?

So they are going to play Viney.

This will not backfire.

Also, I didn't realise Misson was leaving at the end of the season. Interesting.

Just wondering how many of our best 22 are injured? May, Jetta, Lever, AVD, Hibbered, Hannan... The entire back line is nearly wiped out.

Weid didn't play at Casey on the weekend, but wasn't listed in injury reports. What's the story there?
I'm sure I read somewhere that he was being rested. Dropping marks and running away from the ball has really taken it out of him I suppose. He may actually get another game soon as we might not have anyone else on the list to choose from.

Which also means Dave Misson and co sent another player with a foot fracture back onto the field. Lock him up.
To be fair, there is a difference between going back on the ground with the sort of contact fracture Melksham has, and the stress fractures of TMac and Viney.

That said, without doubt, the 4-5 week prognosis will be around 8-12 weeks.
