Nathan Murphy is steadily approaching his much-anticipated comeback from a concussion layoff. Although there isn’t a precise timeline for his return to the field, insiders familiar with Murphy’s situation anticipate his readiness within the next few weeks.

Having received clearance from the AFL, concussion specialists, and Collingwood’s medical staff to resume his career, the 24-year-old defender underwent follow-up scans recently, which reaffirmed his fitness to continue playing.

NATHAN Murphy leaves the field in the 2023 AFL Grand Final.

Despite these assurances, Murphy has grappled with lingering doubts and negative thoughts, which have contributed to the delay in his return. To address these mental challenges, he has dedicated time to working on his psychological well-being, yielding some positive results.

Collingwood has taken a cautious and deliberate approach in reintegrating Murphy into more intense contact training sessions as he progresses toward full readiness.

Since withdrawing himself from last year’s Grand Final due to concussion and enduring a perilous tackle from Nick Daicos during pre-season training in January, Murphy has yet to participate in any competitive matches.
