Selwood played the second half of his side’s 41-point win over Collingwood with a swollen hand but was cleared of any structural damage.
Despite the swollen hand, Selwood managed to rack up 26 possessions in what was a typically impressive display.
The 26-year-old confirmed he would be available for Saturday’s clash with the Swans in Sydney.
“I’ve got the scans back and all has come up well,” Selwood is quoted as saying by AAP.
“There’s no fracture in there, and I’ve just got to work away at getting it better now.
“[I’ll] work away with the medical staff and just get the swelling out of it, but I’ll be fine to go this Saturday night.”
Geelong were on the wrong end of a 110-point thrashing in the corresponding clash last season and will be hoping for a much-improved performance this time around.
The Cats currently sit 12th on the ladder with a 3-3 record, while the Swans are nestled inside the top four after losing just two of its six games.
