Greater Western Sydney veteran, Brett Deledio, has suffered a setback in his attempt to return to senior football in 2017.

Deledio, who has not played a game this season due to ongoing right calf troubles, has believe it or not, injured his good calf, his left one.

The former Tiger suffered the grade one strain at training on Saturday.

The club is yet to indicate how long the recovery process will be.

Deledio joined the Giants at the end of 2016, after 243 games with Richmond.
