Geelong defender Jackson Thurlow is reportedly recovering in hospital after suffering a lacerated kidney at Cats training on Saturday.
According to the Geelong Advertiser, the Cats are hopeful the 20-year-old will be released from hospital later this week after avoiding surgery.
Thurlow, who has played 10 games for the club since making his debut in 2013, is one of Geelong’s shining young talents and has the capacity to move further up the field.
Cats football manager Steve Hocking told the Geelong Advertiser that it was too early to say when Thurlow could return to training.
“The main thing for us is working through the early part,” Hocking said.
“At this point we would be just speculating.”
