Mixed Injury News at Carlton

Injuries plague Carlton: Marchbank and Motlop out, Martin's conditioning, Cuningham sidelined, but Walsh nearing return.

The Carlton Football Club has announced a series of injury updates affecting key players ahead of their upcoming matches.

Matt Carroll continues to manage a groin issue, persisting on his modified program with a return to play to be further assessed in Round 7. David Cuningham, who suffered a low-grade calf strain last week, is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

Caleb Marchbank, who entered concussion protocols last Friday, will be unavailable for selection this week. Jesse Motlop, dealing with a low-grade hamstring strain sustained last week, faces a 2-3 week recovery timeline.

Jack Martin, also dealing with a low-grade hamstring strain, will undergo a conditioning block as part of his recovery plan. His availability is estimated at 5-6 weeks. Additionally, Alex Mirkov is currently on a modified program to increase training loads, with his return date yet to be determined.

On a brighter note, Sam Docherty, who suffered a ruptured ACL and torn meniscus in his right knee, continues his rehabilitation process. Meanwhile, Sam Walsh has returned to full training and is expected to be available in 1-2 weeks.

Despite these challenges, Carlton prepares to face Fremantle at Adelaide Oval this week in a highly anticipated battle between two undefeated teams.
