Finally, some good news from the weekend. Swans big man Kurt Tippett has avoided a serious ankle injury, having been first reported as possibly suffering ligament damage. In the end, it’s just a bad sprain. This is a really lucky break for the club, considering the big man has missed huge blocks of games since 2013.
He’s avoided bone damage and ligament damage, and further scans will confirm the diagnosis. He’s likely to miss 1-2 weeks, depending on severity, but is certain to miss next weekends game against Collingwood.
