Injury Update – Gerloff a chance to return

Forward Cole Gerloff is a chance to return to football this Saturday after making good progress with his shoulder rehabilitation.

The 22-year-old was initially sidelined for 2-3 weeks however is tracking well for a Round 19 return. Gerloff suffered the injury against West Adelaide three weeks ago, however, will train fully this week with a view to being available on Saturday.

There were two new injuries from the past week with Isaac Saywell a late out for the North Adelaide game. Saywell had been experiencing foot soreness in recent weeks, however, he will resume running at the end of the week to give him the best possible chance of a finals return.

Ruckman Michael Knoll suffered a knock to the face during a marking contest early in the last quarter against the Roosters on the weekend. He is available to tackle the Crows on Saturday.

Captain Matthew Nunn (hamstring) and forward Paul Puopolo (knee) continue to make good progress with their respective injuries but are still a couple of weeks away at least.

Defenders Michael Talia and Brodie Carroll are still at least another fortnight away as they continue to recover from hamstrings injuries, while Dom Barry is in a similar scenario as he continues to recover from a calf injury.

Star midfielder, Matthew Panos continues his re-integration into training, however, it remains unlikely that he will feature for Norwood this year.
