You can't be still having symptoms weeks after and think going back into the field is a good idea.

Especially the way be plays, he moves across leading forwards and is third man into marking contests, it's a huge risk

He was all Australian last season .
IMO that was one of the usual AA selectors’ retrospective decisions to recognise past performance that wasn’t rewarded. His intercept marking game that made him so good in 2015-2018 has basically disappeared alongside our team defensive structure, and he’s never been elite as a ground level medium defender.

Still obviously a good player but can see him dropping off quickly as his body breaks down more

Could this explain Sheeds horrible tackling this year?
Sheed started they in pretty good nick and then fell away just before the mid season. That shoulder injury could explain a lot. I think his game in round 2 against that Dog's midfield shows that he can play great footy inside. was instrumental in sparking us back into the game with his 26 touches, 11 clearances and 18 cp's.

He's best footy is good enough to play a vital role in the middle. Supports Yeo and Boots inside and will be instrumental to allowing TK to play the tole he did at the cattery.

On the eagles podcast Ozzie mentioned he's already been in for post season surgery.

Worst kept secret in town...but he finally confessed he had been playing with a fracture in his elbow since round 7, which pretty much coincided with his dip in form after his hot start to the year.
Also mentioned a few players might be at the BnF as they are recovery from sugery.
