Midfielder Luke Parker has undergone arthroscopic surgery to aid in his recovery from a PCL injury he suffered during the preliminary final win over Geelong and is set to have a limited preparation for the 2017 season.
Meanwhile, Papley underwent surgery after he was diagnosed with Compartment syndrome, which is a build-up of pressure in the lower limbs.
“Rest and recovery is the best typically (to heal a PCL injury) and Luke has been doing that since the Grand Final. He was starting to ramp up his training but the injury has regressed slightly,” Swans’ Head of Football, Tom Harley said.
“It was decided a couple of days ago that an arthroscope is the best course of action and we fully expect Luke to recover well.
“Tom Papley developed Compartment syndrome when he started to ramp up his off-season program and he required surgery last week to release the pressure in the compartments in both legs.
“There’s some wound healing initially that he will need to recover from and he will be off legs for the best part of eight weeks.
“It’s disappointing but the success rate for this type of surgery is really high, so we’re looking forward to Tom recovering well and hitting the ground running come the new year.”
