Gold Coast’s Hugh Greenwood will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, but the Suns midfielder is set to return for start of his club’s 2022 campaign after avoiding a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
There were fears Greenwood had ruptured his ACL – which would have meant up to a year on the sidelines – after injuring his knee in the Suns’ one-point weekend win over the GWS Giants.
However, scans revealed 29-year-old Greenwood had instead suffered a torn medial collateral ligament.

““Hugh’s completely ruptured his MCL which is a really significant knee injury,” Suns head physiotherapist Lindsay Bull said
“That will see him in a brace for around about six weeks and some rehab after that, but pleasingly for Hugh he should be right to go for the start of pre-season.”
Meanwhile, key forward Josh Corbett is set to return for the Suns’ clash against the Western Bulldogs on Saturday after missing the win over the Giants due to concussion.
“(Josh) is tracking very well,” Bull said.
“He’ll be able to train later in the week as well so he’ll be available for selection.”
