The Sydney Swans have come through their Round 17 victory over the Western Bulldogs with no serious injuries or concerns.

During the 19-point victory on Sunday afternoon, defender Jake Lloyd was assessed during the game, however, it was a soft tissue contusion which was giving him some knee pain. Lloyd was cleared to return to play without any issues and is expected to be available this weekend.

Forward Sam Reid made a successful return through the VFL on the weekend, playing limited minutes in Sydney’s clash with Footscray. Reid had a busy afternoon, getting through 11km in his return from a calf injury.

Chad Warner continues to progress with his rehab on his injury, training with the team in both running and football drills. Warner is building up to 5-6km, straight line running and change in direction and continues to progress as expected in lower limb stress related injuries.

Lewis Melican and Braeden Campbell both continue to train with the squad and are involved in match play throughout the week. Melican and Campbell are both hopeful of returning from their injuries via the VFL when games become available for the two defenders.

Ruckman Sam Naismith has had his first round of surgery following his ACL injury a fortnight ago. With his second round of surgery planned for the coming months, Naismith continues his recovery, cardiovascular and strength training and rehab program.
