Richmond has revealed the playing status of superstar Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin for this Thursday night, as well as providing an update on hamstrung midfielder Jayden Short.

Martin, who was a late exclusion from Richmond's side that lost to Brisbane last Thursday night, is available for selection after overcoming the illness that ruled him out.

Meanwhile, Short, who suffered his hamstring ailment during last Thursday's contest, will be unavailable for the medium term as he recovers.

Integral midfielder Dion Prestia, meantime, is a test for this Thursday's clash with the Sydney Swans, after missing last week's loss due to a calf injury.

Richmond's bout with Sydney at the MCG is fixtured for Thursday, July 6 at 7:20 PM AEST.
