Recovery Report: Round 7

Recovery Report: Round 7 Head of Medical, Peter Blanch, provides us with the latest recovery report after round 7.

Brisbane Lions Head of Medical Peter Blanch has spoken of the remarkable courage and toughness of injured duo Mitch Robinson and Daniel McStay to play through injury.

Robinson will miss at least 10 weeks of football with a foot fracture while McStay will undergo surgery to repair a fractured hand. Both sustained the injuries during the Lions’ loss to Sydney at the SCG.

“It was a tough weekend for those two lads,” said Brisbane Lions Head of Medical Peter Blanch.

“It showed what tough blokes they are.”

27-year old Robinson will wear a moonboot and stay off his feet for the next month. McStay will have surgery to repair his fractured hand in the coming days.

“(It was) another tough effort from Dan. He’ll get that plated and be out for 2-3 weeks.”

Blanch said Dayne Beams is progressing well in his rehabilitation from a quad injury suffered during the Round 6 loss to Port Adelaide.

The Captain travelled with the team to Sydney – using Saturday’s Captain’s Run to complete agility and running drills.

Beams was one of his team's best across the opening rounds of the season after returning from knee problems that sidelined him for nearly all of 2016.

In further injury news, Tom Cutler is making strides in his recovery from a recurrent hamstring injury.

“Tom’s hamstring is going very well. He’s running quite fast,” said Blanch.

“Just given his history, that it’s a recurrence of the hamstring we got him back quite quickly from last time. We’re not going to make the same mistake, so he’s going to be out for another week yet.”
