Injury news: Round 14

The Carlton Football Club received confirmation today that defender Caleb Marchbank has suffered a lateral meniscus tear in his knee and has undergone surgery.

Marchbank completed the game in Friday night’s win over Essendon, but on Monday he underwent an assessment for a knee condition, which required further specialist consultation.

That consultation ultimately confirmed the meniscus tear that led to surgery this afternoon and Marchbank will now be sidelined for the next six to eight weeks.

Carlton Head of Football Brad Lloyd said the club’s primary focus has been on supporting the 25-year-old.

“Caleb is understandably very disappointed as we are a football club, given how hard we all know Caleb has worked to get himself back and get himself ready to play at an elite level,” said football head Brad Lloyd.

“Caleb has had more than his fair share of bad luck which makes this news hard to hear but as we all saw on Friday night he is more than capable of performing at this level and all we can do is get him through support this period.” of his recovery, we have no doubt that the faithful of Carlton will do the same.”

The Club can also confirm that midfielder Adam Cerra suffered a minor hamstring injury on Friday evening. He is expected to be sidelined for the next two weeks.
