Collingwood star Adam Treloar has every faith that he will play again this season after undergoing surgery on one of his injured hamstrings last week.
The 25-year old injured both hamstrings during his side’s round 14 clash with Carlton, suffering significantly worse tendon damage to his left hamstring.
Given an initial recovery time of approximately two months, the silky onballer is racing the clock to play again this season, but remains confident of his chances.
“The way I’ll attack my rehab will be very diligent and I’ll make sure I do it the best I can to try and give myself the best opportunity to play,” Treloar told Fox Sports News.
“The way sport science is nowadays and the way we’re doing everything, I can’t see why I can’t get back.
“I’ve just got to make sure it’s all smooth-sailing and hopefully I can come back.
“I’ve got all the hope in the world that I will be back playing (this year).”
The Pies have been marred with injuries this season, with Lynden Dunn (ACL) the latest casualty, joining a lengthy list including Treloar, Travis Varcoe, Jamie Elliott, Darcy Moore, Ben Reid, Alex Fasolo, Tyson Goldsack and Daniel Wells.
Treloar has already launched into his rehab program, having already seen some minor progression.
“The first few days it was really hard to walk as you can imagine given it’s both hammies I’ve hurt,” he told Fox Sports News.
“It’s doing really good. Obviously I’m walking at the moment and I can’t wait to be back in next week with the stitches coming out.”
