Bennell cops another calf setback
Luckless former Docker Harley Bennell's injury-plagued career has reportedly taken another hit as he attempts to revive his AFL career.
The former number two draft pick has been training with the Melbourne Demons in a bid to earn a contract through the pre-season supplemental selection period that runs until March 13.
However Bennell appears to have copped yet another cruel blow, re-injuring his left calf as he struggles to keep up with the intensity and training sessions with Melbourne.
The 27-year-old hasn't played at AFL level since 2017 after managing just two games in four years at Fremantle.
Bennell has been on a modified program at the Demons under the guidance of Melbourne's new high performance manager Darren Burgess.
The midfielder was thought to have put his recurring calf troubles behind him after a double bout of surgery last year, after renowned Geelong-based sports physiotherapist Peter Stanton helped to identify a nerve issue was behind the repeated troubles.
However the latest setback sees his AFL career revival take a massive blow as he seeks to find his way back on to a playing list.More to come..
