We take a look at key players for North Melbourne who are currently recovering from off season surgery or are on modified programs.
Anderson is set to be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks after rupturing his AC joint in a full-contact drill late January whilst tackling.
Anderson had surgery on the AC Joint and is expected to resume full training in four to six weeks.
North Melbourne’s cult hero Ben Brown is currently on a modified training programs, due to having a minor knee operation in mid January.
Brown is unlikely to take part in any of the JLT Community Series for the Kangaroos, as he tries to get full fitness before round 1
Goldstein has been struggling with a niggling ankle injury and has been on a modified training program away from the main group.
Coach Brad Scott is confident that his No.1 ruckman will be ready to go for round 1, but may play little to none of the JLT Community Series this pre-season.
