Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy has said he’s okay, after sustaining a head injury at training last Friday.
Grundy was carried off the field during a warm-up at a training session after he received a knock to the head and was taken to hospital for precautionary scans.
The club previously said they expected him to play in the match against GWS on Sunday but withdrew him late due to the injury.
As he jets off to his home state in South Australia, Grundy thanked his followers on Twitter and Instagram for the support and said the incident put his life into perspective given the damage neck and spinal injuries can cause.
Grundy has played 32 games for Collingwood since debuting in Round 18, 2013 and was one of the in-form ruckmen in the competition, with some pundits tipping him to come into All-Australian calculations at year’s end.
The Pies have a bye this weekend before playing Fremantle at Domain Stadium on June 25.
