Collingwood trio Scott Pendlebury, Ben Reid and Tom Phillips must all prove their fitness this week at training ahead of their clash with St Kilda this Saturday night.
Tom Langdon has already been declared available to return from a leg injury that has held him out since their Anzac Day clash with Essendon.
Pendlebury (ankle) and Phillips (ankle) are considered probable, while Reid (Achilles) may still be another week off.
Collingwood’s GM of Football Geoff Walsh provided the following update to the club’s website on their injury status, including Darcy Moore and Jamie Elliott.
Pendlebury – “Last week was one of the few games Scott has missed in his career through injury.”
Phillips – “He has certainly pulled up really well. He’s had tests during the week and is doing really well on those. We’ll have a final test tomorrow (Thursday), but we’re confident Tom will be cleared to play.”
Reid – “Has really put some strong running sessions together. He’ll push for selection… it’s more likely we’ll see Ben available for selection the following week.”
Moore and Elliott – “The timeframe isn’t a solid picture yet. We’ll also use that time to investigate whether there are material issues in terms of why these two boys in particular have had recurrences.”
