“That gives me an opportunity to play another young player or two,” Sheedy said.
“If he comes back rushed and does another hamstring at this time of his career, it wouldn’t be the smart thing to do — he might not play until after the break, well, that’s it.”
It continues an astonishing week of bad luck for players with injuries — St Kilda onballer Lenny Hayes, Western Bulldogs forward Robert Murphy and Brisbane youngster Anthony Corrie led the casualty list after the weekend.
They all face at least nine months out of football, thanks to the dreaded knee reconstruction.
The one piece of good injury news is Aaron Sandilands’ likely return for Fremantle this Saturday night against Richmond.
Sandilands broke his jaw three weeks ago and was expected to miss six games.
But coach Chris Connolly said the 211cm ruckman had made a speedy recovery.
“We think he is probably a 90 per cent chance — his recovery has been outstanding over the past two weeks so if he continues in that vein he will play,” Connolly said.
“We will take no risks in terms of reinjuring himself. If the medical staff says there is a risk, then we would not play him.
“I think there will be a precaution with a guard, but I am not sure about all that, but he has been ticked off by the medical staff and I think senior coaches never overrule their medical staff.”
