“This has clearly been a sensitive and delicate matter, and as a club, the health and wellbeing of our players and staff, particularly Conor and James, has been our number one priority throughout this period,” Essendon chief executive officer Xavier Campbell told the club website.
“The public nature of our industry has made this task even more difficult but we are now pleased to have reached an outcome with the DHHS.
“On behalf of the club, I also wish to thank the Department of Health and Human Services for their significant work in recent days and for providing this information in a timely and professional manner.
“The players will formally recommence training on Wednesday morning at the NEC Hangar in preparation for our round four game against Carlton on Saturday night.”
