Yesterday, it was a bit of tightness and miss a week. Today Bucks is saying a standard hammy 3-4 weeks.
This annoys me a little bit. They go around saying "tightness and a week" so we stay calm, but now we're getting told it could be 3-4.

I'm more alarmed that it's gone from one week precautionary to now 3-4 and likely after the bye than what I would've been if they just said 4 weeks from the word go.

Bucks said Billy was concerned about everyone over-reacting to the news, (despite it being in a different area/unrelated).
His advice was to be honest and deal with it.
Perhaps that explains it.

Wrong. The best approach is to rehab an injury properly, something that appears to be beyond the CFC medical staff.
You should write them a letter. Let them know.
No need. I'm pretty sure they'll have read it on here already. They watch these threads closely for advice. Apparently they've PMed Big Charlie to find out what rehab to do with Elliott.
Here's how it went down:

Walsh: Hey Big Charlie, what should we do with Elliott?
BC: Just rehab him ya dickhead
Walsh: But you know nothing about his condition and haven't assessed his injury?
BC: Just rehab him ya dickhead
Walsh: Thanks Big Charlie. You're a champ. We'll pull him out for 4 weeks and rehab him.

Wouldn't surprise me if they left Walsh out of the loop too, it certainly seems like it when he is doing the injury updates anyway...

'yeah, ahh, err, ahh we should er, ah , see Jamie Elliott back in err ****** if I know ahh'

No chance they would have left him out of the loop surely. They -- probably to protect Elliot, as Bucks said on Sen -- made a decision to downplay it but then clearly thought, meh, wtf....

Its not that outlandish to say his career is on the line, considering his history.

Such a shame.

Actually, I applaud the fact that Bux just came out and said it straight, also happy for them to be conservative with it, give him a month off, give him 6 weeks off if necessary FFS! Just have him fit and primed for September.

We've got 4 games and then the bye before playing the Bulldogs at Marvel and then North at Marvel the week after that.

I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see him until Round 16 against the Hawks...
