HBF Injury Update: Blakely and Langdon commence rehab programs

Connor Blakely has started his rehab training following shoulder surgery two weeks ago. Jason Webber runs through the latest on the injury front.

Ed Langdon and Connor Blakely have returned to the club after both undergoing season ending surgeries. 

Langdon underwent surgery on his knee on Tuesday last week while Blakely had surgery to repair his injured shoulder the week before.

High performance manager Jason Weber said it was good to have the duo back at the club and they have already commenced their rehab programs.

“One’s limping and the other looks like he has a clipped wing but both are recovering really well and working towards their individual plans,” Weber said.

Hayden Crozier has re-joined the main group at training and Weber is optimistic he has recovered from concussion that ruled him out of Saturday’s game against the Swans. 

“Unfortunately Hayden had a couple of knocks during the Gold Coast game that didn’t present during the game but 24 hour post the game he pulled up inappropriately in regards to training and playing,” Weber said.

“He’s passed everything he needs to and is back in full training."
