Recovery Report: Beams on the mend

May 16, 2017 4:37 PM

Recovery Report: Round 8 Head of Medical, Peter Blanch, provides us with the latest recovery report after round 8.

Brisbane Lions Head of Medical Peter Blanch says that Dayne Beams will give himself every opportunity to play against Adelaide on Saturday.

Beams is progressing well in his rehabilitation from a quad injury suffered during the Round 6 loss to Port Adelaide, but will have to tick some boxes – that includes getting through the Lions' main training session on Thursday, if he is to line up against the Crows.

“Dayne’s going really well. We’ll probably make a decision on that at the end of training on Thursday” said Blanch.

Midfielder Tom Rockliff is expected to miss the next 2-3 weeks following a shoulder injury.  

Rockliff left the field late in the fourth quarter of the Lions’ 38-point loss to Hawthorn in Launceston on Saturday after dislocating his left shoulder.

“It’s going to keep him out for the next 2-3 weeks. Hopefully we’ll get him back just after the bye,” said Blanch.

Lions Health Centre: Injury List

In further injury news, Jack Frost received a concussion in Saturday’s NEAFL match against Redland. He is expected to miss a week as he recovers.

The Lions should regain the services of Tom Cutler who is making strides in his recovery from a recurrent hamstring injury.

Alex Witherden should also return in the NEAFL against GWS in Blacktown on Saturday while Sam Skinner is training strongly and is expected to be available to play in the NEAFL as early as next week.
