Fremantle have received a major boost with captain Matthew Pavlich expected to line up against Geelong this weekend after recovering from concussion.
Dockers coach Ross Lyon said on Tuesday that his side were preparing to play without Pavlich as the skipper failed a cognitive state test.
But Lyon revealed Pavlich has passed the test a day later.
“He’s had his cog state (test) and passed it, so now I’m preparing for him to play,” Lyon said.
“From here, there’s no reason he shouldn’t play as long as he doesn’t get symptomatic later in the week.
“It’s a roller coaster ride, isn’t it?”
Lyon dismissed claims from the media that Pavlich had sustained a concussion in the Dockers’ loss to St Kilda before the bye.
“We treat all our players with the utmost care, we’ve got a real responsibility,” Lyon said.
“We’re very good, the AFL. We’ve got super-qualified doctors.”
