Melbourne midfielder Dom Tyson has suffered an injury setback during pre-season training.

Demons’ manager of football operations, Josh Mahoney, revealed yesterday that Tyson suffered a partial dislocation of his patella tendon during the club’s grueling pre-season camp prior to Christmas.

However, he is expected to be fit in time for the pre-season competition beginning next month.

“The entire playing group went through a two-day camp in the lead up to Christmas,” Mahoney toldĀ AFL.com.au.

“This camp was a highly-valued experience by the group to test them both physically and mentally.

“Unfortunately, Dom Tyson suffered a partial dislocation of the patella tendon during the camp and as a result, will miss a portion of pre-season training.

“Dom is currently in the rehab group but we expect him to return to full training and to be available for selection during the JLT Community Series.”
