Midfielder Anthony Miles has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after injuring his ankle on the weekend.
Miles left the field with the complaint in the first quarter, returned to play but couldn’t finish the game, eventually being iced up in the final quarter.
“Anthony got his ankle caught under him in a tackle on the weekend so he was pretty sore early this week,” SUNS Head Physiotherapist Lindsay Bull told the Alpha Sport Injury Update.
“He’s had some damage to the syndesmosis in his ankle so unfortunately that will mean he’s out for the rest of the season.
“He’s going to go see a surgeon later on in the week and we’ll determine the best course of action for Anthony from there.”
First-year SUN Jez McLennan missed the NEAFL match on the weekend after injuring his ankle at training.
Bull said the injury would also see the defender miss the remaining two games of the season.
“Jez hurt his ankle in a marking contest in training on Thursday,” Bull said.
“He hurt the medial ligament of his ankle - the deltoid ligament – and he’s going to go have surgery on that on Thursday.”
In good news, Aaron Young returned from injury in the NEAFL and will play again this week.
“Aaron did really well after his return from the injury to his knee,” Bull said.
“He had a really good game and will be available this weekend as well.”
