Which random malady will be inflicted upon Jacobs this season?

I'm going with Cholera.
Meningitis transmitted by a flea that only survives on one breed of rodent, of which there are only three left, in the darkest depths of the Borneo jungle, which was transported here in a contaminated crate of palm sugar, shavings of which were used in a Thai salad that he ate at a popular East Asian restaurant over the Christmas break.

Could someone who knows provide an updated injury list that includes today’s calf injuries. It has become a little concerning with the amount of players that will have only completed limited pre-seasons.

I don’t know much but Tarrants calf couldn’t be too bad. Him and Brown were training pretty hard from what I could see yesterday. I’m guessing they just didn’t want them in the match sim so they didn’t cop a knock.

Player Injury Estimated Return
Majak Daw Pelvis/hips Indefinite
Sam Durdin Finger 8-10 weeks
Ben Jacobs Sinusitis Indefinite
Robbie Tarrant AC joint Round one
Scott Thompson Suspended Round two Will Walker PCL Indefinite

Updated: Wednesday, February 20

Early prognosis

Tarrant is in a race against time to be fit for round one, but North is confident its best key defender will be fit to take on Fremantle and lead a Roos' defence that will be without Daw and Thompson, while fellow tall Durdin was ruled out for 10 weeks on Wednesday after suffering a deep cut to his little finger. Jacobs continues to complete a good volume of training but has not yet made a full recovery from an off-season sinus operation. The Roos won't risk the run-with midfielder in games until he has completely overcome lingering symptoms of congestion and grogginess. Second-year midfielder Walker is making a frustratingly slow recovery from the PCL strain he suffered late last season, while North will approach Daw's rehabilitation one step at a time despite the remarkable progress he has made since his fall from the Bolte Bridge in December. Jack Ziebell, Mason Wood and Jasper Pittard (all calf strains) returned to full training this week and are expected to play in the JLT Community Series. - Nick Bowen

A Jacobs explanation would be nice given this has been going on since before the gold rush.
There was an explaination last week. The surgery went well but there are some lingering symptoms that will clear up gradually. But apparently this is some big cover up for something far more sinister that the damn club isn't telling us, just like Durds cutting himself with a knife whilst opening a food packet. Bet he was holding a flick knife in his pocket whilst doing lines at the rippers with Dan Hannebury, cracked a chub and cut his finger off.
