West Coast coach Adam Simpson has confirmed Josh Kennedy won’t play during the AFL pre-season, but star defender Jeremy McGovern will be unleashed against Geelong on Friday.

Kennedy underwent off-season shoulder surgery, and had to be “deloaded” after the Christmas break after pulling up with foot soreness.

The 31-year-old is back on running duties, but is yet to join in on full training.

Simpson said the two-time Coleman medallist would miss the pre-season games against Geelong and Fremantle while the club builds him up on the training track.

But Kennedy remains on track to play in the season opener against Brisbane at the Gabba on March 23.
Small forward Jamie Cripps (toe) has already been ruled out for the early rounds of the season, while Nic Naitanui (knee) isn’t due back until Round 10 at the very earliest.

But the rest of West Coast’s premiership squad are working their way back to full fitness.

McGovern had a plate inserted last month to help heal the ribs he cracked in the grand final. The three-time All-Australian has been cleared to play against Geelong at Leederville Oval on Friday.

Elliot Yeo (toe) and Luke Shuey (soreness) are other stars who have been given the green light.

Bit of a bummer losing Cripps early. With Lecca retired, Cripps is hugely important to the forward line.

The West has a link about todays training and mentions Cripps could be back earlier after returning to main training today but will still miss a few early games. JK also looking good for round 1. I really hope we do not rush them back.

AFL site saying our official submitted list has Nic Nat at 3-4 months...could this possibly be some transparency?!

EDIT: Also no Venables listed and JK is at 2-3wks

That’s not an official club list as such but the AFL’s journos (Travis King) best guess based on what the club has said and what he’s seen

Travis is a good operator and has a good relationship with the club though so it’ll be pretty accurate

Ben Cameron on Sportsday WA last night said he has heard that Nic’s recovery is going so well that internally the club believes it could be round 3/4. But is maintaining a round 10 return in public.

Simmo has said he is not far off starting his own pre season going into full training and without hiccups should be back around Round 10. Whether that includes some WAFL time I'm not sure, but his timeline didn't quite stack up from what I recall (as in NN could be back sooner). The radio interview is on Eagles website.
