Season over for Cripps

McKay on Cripps and White Andrew McKay addressed the media today following injuries to Patrick Cripps and Simon White.

Carlton’s Patrick Cripps will miss the remainder of the season after scans on Monday confirmed a fractured fibula. 

The 22-year-old was sidelined in the second quarter of the Blues’ clash with Melbourne on Sunday afternoon, and took no further part in the game.

“Unfortunately, scans have revealed a fractured left fibula, but the good news from a medical perspective is Patrick won’t require surgery,” Head of Football Andrew McKay said.

“It would usually be approximately a six-week injury which, given the timing, takes us through to the end of the season. It’s obviously very disappointing for both Patrick and the Club, but he will make a full recovery well before the start of the 2018 pre-season campaign.
