Dangerfield has been cleared of any structural damage to his knee and is expected to play against the Eagles on Saturday.
The Adelaide Crows are breathing a sigh of relief after its star player Patrick Dangerfield was cleared of serious injury and would not require scans on his knee.
Dangerfield fell to the ground in the closing stages of Adelaide’s 16-point win over Collingwood at the MCG on Sunday and sent a scare through the Adelaide camp as he writhed in pain, clutching his right knee.
The 24-year-old was forced off the field and onto the substitutes bench where he was assessed.
Following the assessment, the club said the acting co-captain was sore but he is expected to play against West Coast this weekend.
“There’s nothing like getting hurt in the last few minutes of a game,” Dangerfield told the club’s website.
“It’ll be a bit sore and swollen, but we have fantastic medical staff and I’m sure I’ll be sweet to go next weekend.”
Adelaide entered the top eight for the first time this season following its victory over the Magpies.
