Injury Update: Jack Ziebell

Nth Melbourne midfielder Jack Ziebell injured his knee in Round 1, the injury has been diagnosed as a high grade medial ligament strain.

Update 25 March:

Ziebell will begin his 6-8 week rehabilitation period, there is some chance he will be available for a Round 2 return if the AFL recommences in early June.

“I got a scan Monday and it revealed exactly what the doctors thought, which was a high-grade medial strain and probably miss six to eight weeks, which is not ideal, but if there was a time to be injured it’s probably now.”

“For me to be injured in round one and potentially be playing in round two, from a selfish point of view that’s not a bad result, but at the same time I’d love the game to still be playing right now. I know how difficult it’s been for the footy world.” Jack Ziebell.

AFL FANTASY TAKE

If the AFL returns in early June then Ziebell will likely be ready to resume at Round 2, however due to the unavailability for rehabilitation to be completed at any club in the short term does present a different risk of not returning to full fitness.

Ziebell did have an injury interrupted pre-season due to a calf injury & played mostly forward in Round 1, expect Shaun Higgins, Jy Simpkin, Jed Anderson & Ben Cunnington to carry most of the midfield load for the remainder of the 2020 season.
