Emerging ruckman Darcy Cameron has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after injuring his shoulder in the NEAFL on Saturday.

The 21-year-old will require surgery after he dislocated his shoulder in the team’s 171-point win against GWS Giants at Blacktown.

Swans Head of Football Tom Harley says it’s a disappointing setback for the up and coming big man.

“It’s rotten luck for Darcy Cameron who’s obviously a promising ruckman that we saw through the JLT Community Series,” Harley told Centrum Team Selection.

“Darcy subluxed his shoulder and then dislocated it so he’ll require surgery.

“He saw the surgeon today and he’s looking to have surgery on that shoulder next week which unfortunately rules him out for the remainder of the season.

“He’s an important part of our future so we will give him every opportunity to get himself right and have a big pre-season but it’s obviously disappointing for Darcy and we wish him well.”

Former skipper Jarrad McVeigh is still at least another week from returning from a hamstring injury suffered against North Melbourne in Round 8.

“He obviously had the hamstring injury sustained a couple of weeks ago now so it’s just making sure we get the strength right there,” Harley said.

“The plan is for him to train next week and we’ll reassess then but he won’t play this week.”

In some positive news for Swans fans, Dan Robinson is available for selection after overcoming a fractured jaw.

Robinson has had an unlucky run with injury in 2017 after also overcoming a broken collarbone suffered earlier in the year.

“Dan had the shoulder injury at the start of the year and then his second game back in the NEAFL he fractured his jaw,” Harley said.

“He’s had a couple of weeks off since the jaw, he’s back now – he had surgery to repair that – and let’s just hope he gets a good run at it because when he has been able to get on the park, at both levels to be fair, he’s played really well.”

Speedster Harry Cunningham is also nearing in on a return from a foot injury.
