There’s a chance that Will Langford of the third-place Hawthorn Hawks (12-4) may miss the remainder of the 2015 AFL campaign due to a knee injury. Langford was hoping to return to the side after recovering from a medial ligament knee problem, but has now suffered a setback during training. The club is unsure how long he’ll remain out of action, but they peg his rehabilitation time anywhere between two and six weeks. Fans and bettors should be sure to check out the CrownBet AFL Info page for all the latest footy news.
Chris Fagan, the Hawks’ general manager of football operations, said,
He’s recovered pretty well from it. It’s probably going to be closer to two weeks than six, which is fortunate. But it’s just one of those things we’ll have to take as it comes and see what his level of soreness is like.

The 23-year-old Langford starred in last year’s Grand Final match as he kicked a trio of goals from 21 disposals. He suffered calf trouble earlier this season and has appeared in just 10 matches up to now in 2015. Langford was training on July 28th with a couple of other injured Hawthorn players Liam Shiels and Ben Stratton and they’re expected to return before he does. Fagan said Stratton and Shiels were just suffering from minor injuries. Don’t forget to head over to the CrownBet AFL Info page to read up on all the latest events.
The Hawks are hoping Taylor Duryea will be able to return to action on July 31st when the Hawks take on the fifth-place Richmond Tigers (10-6) in an intriguing matchup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Also, key defender James Frawley could be back with the side after playing in the VFL last weekend following a shoulder injury. Fagan said the shoulder passed the test and Frawley is anxious to suit up against Richmond. If Frawley is able to play he’ll likely replace Matt Spangher as he went down with a hamstring problem in last week’s 138-point blowout of the Carlton Blues. Fagan said the club expects Spangher to be out for three or four weeks. Footy fans should pay a regular visit to the CrownBet AFL Info page to keep up to date on league news and events.
