Geelong forward Gryan Miers and ruckman Jonathon Ceglar have both undergone surgery.
Miers suffered a syndesmosis injury to his left ankle at training last week. After consulting specialists, it was determined that surgery was the appropriate course of action.
Miers has begun his post-operative rehabilitation. His return is to be determined, depending on his recovery and rehabilitation.
“Gryan is an important player for us, as he has shown over the past three years,” Geelong’s general manager of football Simon Lloyd said.
“We reviewed the scans and considered all possible options before determining that surgery was required. As we have seen with this type of injury, it is difficult to outline a return date, as everyone heals and rehabs differently. Gryan will undertake his rehabilitation diligently and professionally to get back on the field as soon as possible.
Ceglar had an arthroscopy on his right knee after a training mishap.
“Jonathon’s surgery addresses a minor knee issue, and the expectation is that he will make a quick recovery.”
