Chris Scott on... Jed Bews

He is [on track to play on the weekend]. There have certainly been no hiccups in his rehab so again, [I could] touch a little bit on the concussion incidents and talk about the spectrum that exists and all those things but it's just not valuable. 

He's in the protocol and they tell me he'll be available.

I suspect without completely knowing that they are playing more like the way they wanted to. 

I don't think it's been a deliberate change necessarily in the way they've been trying to play, they've just been able to execute it better and I think we've seen right across the competition that a few key players out make a difference and those guys coming back also has a positive influence. 

They seem to be back to the way they were last year - that's a pretty superficial assessment - but certainly going a lot better.

I think it's likely that he'll have a light week and then be available to play. 

That's the advice that I've been given. His ankle injury wasn't serious.

He missed a week, was available to play, and then just jagged it in the first five minutes, but was able to come back and play the game out. 

We haven't had the complete prognosis given to us yet but put it this way, by this stage of the week, if it's clear that he wouldn't be playing we would know and we haven't got that information.

He'll play this weekend. 

We want to see how he goes over the next few days but he doesn't need to do anything special over the next few days to be available. 

The plan, given that there was a VFL bye last week was to have him ready to play last week, knowing that there was a bit of a buffer there. He did a training load that was in excess of his game load the previous couple of weeks which if he pulled up well from, had him available this week. 

So, pretty sure he's going to play.

The advice to us is that they're going to treat it symptomatically and he'll keep stepping up his program and as long as he is pain-free he can progress really quickly, which is happening. 

But he's not training with the group yet, so I think we're starting to get to that. 

Could he play the week before the bye? Should we hold him back for another two weeks, use the bye and play the following week?

That's roughly the time frame.
