Young forward Tori Groves-Little will be unavailable for the Round 8 NAB AFLW match against Carlton after being ruled out with concussion.
Groves-Little had an impact to her head during the game and has since reported concussion symptoms which has placed her in the league’s concussion protocol.
“Tori was brought off for a HIA (head injury assessment) and passed that with the doctors and then was able to finish the game,” AFLW Head Physiotherapist Aaron Duffy told the Qscan Injury Update.
“Since then she’s reported some symptoms and the doctors have diagnosed her with delayed onset concussion.
“As per the AFL concussion guidelines she’ll be unavailable this week and she’ll commence her return to play.”
Ellie Hampson has been unavailable with a persistent foot injury but is expected to re-join main training this week.
“Ellie completed a further period of offload and since then has progressed with her rehab,” Duffy said.
“She’ll start training with the team this week and then we’ll continue to monitor her over the next couple of rounds.”
Defender Emma Pittman is nearing a return from her ACL injury and has played full minutes in a QAFLW match for Coorparoo on the weekend.
