Brisbane Lions gun defender Harris Andrews is in line to make a miraculous recovery from his hamstring injury, with reports now suggesting the All-Australian is in contention to play in the Lions' first final.
Andrews sustained a torn hamstring earlier this month against Collingwood in round 15 and was facing six weeks on the sidelines and potentially making a late return if the Lions pushed deep into the finals.
According to SEN, Andrews has undergone rapid rehabilitation and is likely to face either Geelong or Richmond for the Lions home final in week one.
A return would give his club a major boost in their grand final push, with the final game of the season being changed to The Gabba as the Lions stand a strong chance to take out the premiership in 2020.
Andrews is believed to have trained substantially late last week and is hoping to do the same in the coming days to prove his fitness by selection next week.
