AFL 2019, Nat Fyfe injury, surgery: Fremantle captain to have a procedure on inflamed elbow, return date set


Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe will undergo surgery on an elbow injury that dates back to last year after the AFLX tournament on Friday night.

Fyfe has been bothered by an inflamed bursa on his elbow for some time but suffered a knock which made it worse a few weeks back. Dockers GM of football Peter Bell confirmed on Saturday that the superstar will go under the knife.

However, Fyfe is not expected to be out for long, and may still be ready for Fremantle's first JLT Community Series pre-season game in just over a week.

"The plan is going to go in for a small procedure, it might require a one-night stay, but it will be a really minor procedure," Bell told 6PR.
