The Sydney Swans could be bolstered by the return of Jordan Dawson for Sunday’s match against Geelong.
Dawson has recovered from a concussion he suffered following the Round 15 match against Carlton.
Executive General Manager of Football Charlie Gardiner said Dawson returned to training earlier this week.
“Jordan had some symptoms early on in the week, and because of the short turnaround times, it made it difficult for him to get up for the Brisbane game,” Gardiner said.
“He is feeling great now and trained yesterday, taking part in some running.
“I expect he will be fit and raring to go for Sunday’s game against Geelong.”
However, small forward Lewis Taylor will miss this weekend after scans revealed a crack in the fifth metatarsal in his foot.
Taylor sustained the injury in the opening moments of the Swans loss to Brisbane on Sunday.
“Unfortunately that will be the end of his season, so he has flown back down to Brisbane overnight to see a surgeon,” Gardiner said.
“We will get some advice from that consultation about next steps and whether he potentially needs surgery going forward.
“It is disappointing news for Lewy.”
Meanwhile, debutant ruckman Joel Amartey rolled his ankle in the game and will need to get through Friday’s training session before a call is made on his availability.
