Veteran Adelaide Crows defender Brent Reilly is resting in hospital after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured skull.
Reilly had a plate inserted into his skull to stabilise the fracture after a head clash during what was described as a “routine” training drill.
“The 31-year-old is out of immediate danger but he remains in the Royal Adelaide Hospital’s intensive care unit where his recovery will be monitored closely for the next few days,” Adelaide said in a statement.
Reilly, who has played in 203 games for the Crows since making his AFL debut in 2002, was conscious whilst being treated on the training ground before being taken by ambulance to the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
“The Club will be making no further comment at this stage and we ask you to respect the Reilly family’s privacy at this time,” the Crows statement ended.
