Connor Blakely will undergo surgery on his shoulder and miss the rest of the 2017 season.

Connor Blakely will undergo surgery on his shoulder and miss the rest of the 2017 season.

Fremantle’s Connor Blakely and Ed Langdon are set to undergo surgery, which will rule the 2014 draftees out for the remainder of the 2017 season.

Blakely dislocated his left shoulder during a marking contest in Freo’s clash against GWS on Saturday, while Langdon has missed almost two months of football with a knee injury. 

Fremantle high performance manager Jason Weber said that Blakely and Langdon are scheduled to visit specialists, with surgery to follow in the coming week.

“Connor had quite a significant shoulder injury at the weekend, while Ed’s PCL injury was quite significant, and he’s had some challenges along the way,” Weber said. 

“Both Connor and Ed will have surgery in the coming week and will miss the rest of the season.”

Weber said the timing of their surgery would allow both players time to fully recover and be ready for pre-season training.

“Both players, post their surgery, will be ready to complete a full pre-season,” Weber said.
