Star Demon to return from injury in VFL

Jason Phelan

Star Melbourne onballer Jack Viney will make his much-anticipated return from a foot injury in the VFL at the weekend.

Viney is yet to play at AFL level this season as he has dealt with ongoing complications associated with a foot stress fracture.

The co-captain had been keen to return when the Demons play Gold Coast at the Gabba on Saturday but will instead play for Casey against Box Hill at Casey Fields on Sunday.
