Dees' Viney back for to face Blues in AFL

Melbourne co-captain Jack Viney will make his long-awaited return from injury in the Demons AFL clash with Carlton on Sunday at the MCG.

Viney hasn't played this season due to a foot injury, with the Demons taking a cautious approach after a related problem had prematurely ended his 2017 season.

Viney, having not played since round 21, said it had been a frustrating time but he didn't want to risk another setback by returning early.
