Brayden Crossley is expected to be sidelined for the next 2-3 weeks after suffering hamstring injury in the NEAFL.
Gold Coast’s Head Physiotherapist Lindsay Bull told the Alpha Sport Injury Update it was only a minor strain and shouldn’t see the key forward miss too much football.
“Brayden hurt his hamstring in the NEAFL game on the weekend,” Bull said.
“It’s a pretty low-grade injury but it will likely see him miss the next couple of weeks.”
In positive news Josh Corbett and Josh Schoenfeld are primed for a return to football this week after completing their respective rehab programs.
“Both the Josh’s trained last week with the team and will train this week with the team as well,” Bull said.
“Both will be available for selection all going well this week.”
New recruit Sam Fletcher is another who is expected to see action this week after he injured his ankle in a NEAFL practice match two weeks ago.
“Sam’s done really well with his ankle rehabilitation and looks set to be available for selection as well,” Bull said.
