Dangerfield a chance to face Crows

Geelong star Patrick Dangerfield remains a chance to play former side, Adelaide, on Friday night, after injuring his foot on Saturday afternoon.

Dangerfield, who injured his foot during the first quarter of the Cats’ win over Hawthorn on Saturday, revealed on Monday afternoon he has escaped serious injury, with scans revealing he has suffered bone bruising.

The reigning Brownlow Medalist went down to the rooms for treatment after his foot collided with Hawk Jarryd Roughead’s leg while he was attempting to kick.

He returned to the field to spend the final three quarters at full forward where he kicked five goals, despite restricted movement.

Dangerfield’s press conference contained some classic Danger tongue in cheek, poking fun at Kane Cornes’ claims that he exaggerates injuries.

Cornes said on Sunday Dangerfield has a habit of exaggerating injuries and questioned how serious the onballer’s injury was following his stellar performance in the forward line.

The Crows host the Cats at Adelaide Oval on Friday night.
