Trengove blow for Demons

Sportal December 6, 2012, 7:48 am

Melbourne captain Jack Trengove could miss up to six weeks after a stress fracture was revealed in his left foot.

The 21-year-old will forgo the club's nine-day training camp in Darwin as a result.

Trengove will wear a protective boot, with club manager Josh Mahoney revealing the stress fracture had been detected in its early stages.

"This is clearly a disappointing setback for Jack. The positive element to this is that the stress fracture was identified early, which will allow Jack to begin his rehab immediately," Mahoney said.

"We expect Jack to be able to begin his running program in January. His rehab will be continually assessed but at this stage we are hopeful that he'll be available for the start of the AFL season."

Trengove, who shares captaincy duties with Jack Grimes, became the youngest skipper in VFL/AFL history when he was appointed in February.

    The clowns who talk bad about this country's game are to be looked at as people who should not be allowed to breath Australian air...... Fanatics about the other code .. called soccer - should comment on that sport........if one can call it that......Un Australian is one who does not like Australian Rules - if you are Un Australian - then get out of my country and go follow David Beckham....More importantly - I hope Jack Trengrove makes a swift and successful return to footy...... He is so talented.........

    But what you do not understand is, in his foot he has a slight crack, he does not need to plug it with someone else's finger. Girlie game ? or are you in favour of the mucho game? haha
