Geelong midfielder Jack Steven is set to resume training with the main group this week after being sidelined with a calf injury earlier this month.
Patrick Dangerfield revealed an injury scare for Steven on SEN this morning.

Mitch Cleary confirmed the injury this afternoon & advised of his return via AFL.com.au.
Steven averaged 19.0 Disposals, 2.7 Marks & 3.3 Tackles from 7 games for the Saints in 2019, he was traded to Geelong at the end of 2019..
AFL FANTASY TAKE
The setback for Steven after a poor return from a football perspective last season should raise a little concern, however from all reports the injury has passed but certainly it is worthwhile paying attention to any further updates if they eventuate.
Steven played a split midfield/forward role last season due to his lack of fitness, he has trimmed down significantly over the off-season period.
The fitness issue likely played a part in his forward role last season, being able to regain his fitness at the Cats should see an increase in his midfield usage in 2020.
