Bupa Recovery Report: Round 5 Hannah and Andrew discuss the week's recovery news including an update on O'Meara, O'Rourke and how Hodgey and Gibbo faired after their clashes on the weekend.

Hawthorn heads into Round 5 with a relatively healthy injury list, with Jaeger O'Meara and Ty Vickery both recovering well after missing Monday's clash.

Elite Performance Manager Andrew Russell says the club is pleased with the way O'Meara is recovering. 

"The knee is settling down well," says Russell.

"He's a test and we'll see how he handles the football load later in the week."

Jonathan O'Rourke also made his return to football after recovering from a hamstring injury, and managed a solid performance for Box Hill.

"Jono handled the game really well," says Russell.

"We were pleased with his output, he played about 60 minutes, so he'll be somewhere in the mix to play this week."
