Four Adelaide players will remain off the track for the coming week after sustaining recent pre-season setbacks at training.

Young midfielder Jake Soligo has fortunately avoided structural damage on a recent ankle injury but isn't expected to be back running until next week.

The third-year wingman's likely return date remains up in the air as he continues his rehabilitation.

“Jake had scans on Friday which confirmed no structural damage,” Crows high performance manager Darren Burgess said in a club update.

“He trained on the bike today and we are hopeful he can resume running next week based on how his ankle responds in coming days.

“That will give us a clearer indication of when he will be able to return to training with the main group.”

Veteran midfielder Rory Sloane will continue to gain specialist treatment following successful eye surgery last week, with the club hopeful their ex-captain can return to physical drills as early as next week.

Sloane spent the past week resting at home following the procedure on a detached retina, with the 33-year-old now placed on a gradual recovery path.

Defensive pair Jordon Butts and Wayne Milera are up to three weeks away from returning to full fitness following respective hamstring injuries.

Both players are expected to be back running this week but will remain away from the main group for the time being.

Adelaide are fixtured to face Port Adelaide and West Coast as part of their practice match schedule in the lead-up to a Round 1 bout with Gold Coast on Saturday, March 16.
