Essendon young gun Joe Daniher has undergone successful surgery to repair a small fracture in his collarbone.
The 20-year-old left hospital on Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery from the surgery within three weeks.
Bombers club doctor Bruce Reid said the surgery went to plan for the young key forward.
“It all went very well and he was out of hospital at about 10am on Wednesday morning so he will now begin to focus on his rehabilitation,” Reid said.
“Joe had screws and a plate put across the crack so that it can heal and we are hopeful he will only miss three weeks.”
The 201cm Daniher was a late withdrawal from the squad for the AFL Round 18 clash with the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium after he was injured at training when a teammate fell on him.
Second-year player Daniher has kicked 19 goals in 16 games in 2014 and is the son of ex-Bomber Anthony Daniher.
