CATS forward Gryan Miers has made a speedy recovery from the recurrence of a fibula injury to return to training with the main group.
Miers suffered a knock to his previously injured leg in Round 19 against Richmond.
“Gryan Miers has shown remarkable improvement. He’s currently running and he’ll progress with his rehab and his run program as pain and function allows,” GM of Football Simon Lloyd says.
“He joined in football today as part of the training session. He’s showing really positive improvements.”
Geelong will be without last week’s omissions from the side for another week, as Lachie Henderson, Tom Atkins and Mark O’Connor get some well-earned rest.
“All three have had heavy loads throughout the season,” Lloyd says.
“We’ve made the decision to give all three an additional week of rest and work through that as we need to.”
Fans will also need to wait another week to see dynamite forward Jeremy Cameron back in the hoops, despite strong showings on the training track.
“Jeremy is currently running at high speed. His loading has increased significantly,” Lloyd says.
“He’s completing high kilometres and full training.
“As Chris Scott mentioned in his press conference, we’ve decided to hold him back a little longer and he’s tracking well.”
Mitch Duncan is back up and running after a PCL injury put a stop to his good run of form.
“He has progressed out of his leg brace and he’s now focusing on ramping up his strength and his running loads,” Lloyd says.
“He’s on track and we’re happy with his progress.”
Cameron Taheny and Cooper Stephens will remain on the sidelines this week with hamstring and ankle complaints.
