Charlie Curnow will miss the start of 2020 pre-season after injuring his knee playing non-competitive basketball, after further assessment by Carlton Curnow is scheduled for surgery on Monday to stabilise his patella tendon.
“We are confident surgery will be the right course of action to allow him to recover fully,”
“We expect he will be back running prior to Christmas as he prepares for the start of the 2020 season.” Carlton Head of Football Brad Lloyd via CFC Media.
Curnow is already coming off an injury interrupted season in which he played only 11 games, he has never completed a full season at the Blues over his 4 year career and has played in 70.5% of games since the beginning of the 2018 H&A season. Carlton are 5-7 over the same period when Curnow has not played.
Curnow averaged 12.3 Disposals, 4.5 Marks & 1.6 Goals (Rank 1) for the Blues in 2019.

Curnow is a pass for classic & and a late round option in draft.
