Collingwood skipper Scott Pendlebury has been cleared any any serious ankle injury and may be fit to play Geelong this weekend, as reported by

The Pies made quick work of assessing the severity of Pendlebury’s injury, as he underwent a series of scans. Fortunately, the scans have come back clear and the Magpies will give him a chance to prove his fitness before the weekend.

Pendlebury sustained the injury in the second quarter of Collingwood’s round seven clash with Brisbane and went down to the rooms. After trying to play through it, he left the game for a second time and sat out the rest of the match.

“Scott is out of the protective boot he wore home from Brisbane and the upshot is that he has bruising to his ankle and lower shin,’ Collingwood’s General Manager of Football Geoff Walsh told

“He has been cleared of anything more serious than that … he is a chance to play against the Cats.”
