AFL Injury lists going into Round 15, 2010

Any injury news this week? Just a WHOLE FRIGGING LOT!

The sad news of the week was the Saturday injury to feel good story of the year, Michael Barlow! His season ended when Rhys Palmer crashed through his leg snapping it and causing him into surgery to insert plates. He is out for the season. Jack Ziebell of the North got another break in his leg and looks like missing most of the season. The Hawks will go into their huge grunge match with the Cats with a 7 game win streak but without their skipper Sam Mitchell.

On the other side of things, there are some big names getting ready to return. Biggest of those names possibly returning is Nick Riewoldt. He is reportedly training at full pace and it will pretty much come down to if the Saints want his return to be interstate (with the plane travel) and on one of the hardest surfaces in the league. Bomber Thompson has reported that Brad Ottens is ready to return and could come back in this week to face the Hawks. It seems that if he does, he probably will mostly play forward, which would be helpful to the Cats due to Hawkins and Mooney both being missing the game, as well as midsize forward Steve Johnson. Ottens can definitely stretch the hawks.

Anyway, onto the injury lists!
