Knee injury. No detail yet, but doesn’t sound great.

Told by another player that the club is telling them he’ll be out anywhere from 4-8 weeks. Will know more once the boot comes off.

Yeah, I suspect the club is playing it down - what with the membership drive only now entering full swing. Am hearing from several sources that its only a minor sprain but then you get the line "we'll know more when the swelling subsides"- always a strong indication that its not going to be great news.

And, Cale Hooker has just done a hammy - minor tweak - couple of weeks - apparently

So - Gleeson, taking for ever to heal. Begley, still a long way off being full recovered, Joe D - only now building his work load, Fantasia, unable to participate in full contact and tackling training while recovering from finger, Bellchambers just building up his program after post season surgery

WTF

For the first time in 15 years we look we have a team which can actually go somewhere and then the footy gods strike - f*** You Essendon they're saying

Tom Browne isnt very popular for even mentioning his knee. Not one single person spoke to him yet he still ran with that rubbish on Twitter.
Essendon Football Club- We arent arrogant, just better.

I thought the grass at Tulla was supposed to be 250% softer than Windy Hill.

So that would be the same school, headed up by one C.Wilson.
