NORWOOD will be without defender Michael Talia for the next month of football after suffering a hamstring injury in the win over West Adelaide.
Talia reported some soreness in his hamstring after the match and will now undergo a strengthening program and build his running in the coming weeks.
Forward Cole Gerloff will also spend some time on the sidelines after a heavy collision led to him injuring his shoulder in the first quarter of the Reserves a fortnight ago. The 22-year-old Has recovered well and will build his training to return in the coming weeks.
Running duo Dom Barry (calf) and Brodie Carroll (hamstring) are still at least 2-3 weeks away from returning and are undergoing recovery and training programs to return in the coming weeks.
Forward Paul Puopolo is recovering well from his knee injury suffered at The Bay in Round 16. He will resume running this week in anticipation of a sooner return rather than later.
Captain Matthew Nunn is progressing well in his recovery from a hamstring injury suffered against Port Adelaide and is gradually increasing his running loads.
Star midfielder, Matthew Panos continues his re-integration into training, however, it remains unlikely that he will feature for Norwood this year.
