AFL Round 2: Injury Wrap Up

We cover all the injuries that occured at your club in Round 2


In what looked like a incident collision, Josh Jenkins hit the deck in instant discomfort. The incident occurred at the 10 minute mark of the first quarter and was quickly went down to the rooms in pain and took no further part in the match.

Jenkins was later diagnosed with a punctured lung and is set to be sidelined for the best part of 2 months.



Nothing serious for the Brisbane Lions to worry about, as they got through the game relatively ok.

Lewis Taylor and Dan Mcstay got some patch work done to their heads after suffering cuts to the head, but played out the game.

There was some concern with Captain Dayne Beams rushing to the bench which looked to be a serious ankle injury. Beams received treatment on the suspect ankle, got it strapped up and continued to play out the game, which was a relief for the Lions faithful.


Dale Thomas injured his right knee in the match and was required to leave the field for treatment. He later returned with his knee heavily strapped and a magic needle enabled to finish out the game.

Young gun Jack Silvagni received a knee to the back in a marking contest that forced him from the field. Silvagni went straight down to the rooms for the Club doctor to have a once over. Silvagni was give a fitness test by the medical staff to complete along the boundary line and he showed, just like his father that he is a tough little bastard. Dad would have been proud.

Former No.1 Draft pick Jacob Weitering needed attention on the hip he injured against the Tigers in round 1. He managed to play the game out, but is a injury the medical staff will monitor during the week.


Another tough loss for the Magpies, but good news on the medical front, with the Pies having no real major concers.

Jesse White did leave the field in the first quarter after doing damage to his right knee, but some ice and some rest on the boundary line saw him return within 10-15 minutes and he managed to play the match out without any restrictions. Will be monitored during the week.


All Smiles at Essendon – no injuries to report.


No injuries for the Dockers – Other then a bruised ego
