Hawthorn holds a relatively clean bill of health coming out of a hard-fought loss in Round 14 with no injuries to report from the match.

Over the past week Harry Morrison’s hamstring setback from the previous round has begun to settle down seeing the young defender return to his running program.

Physical Performance Manager Luke Boyd said the location of Morrison’s injury meant he’d likely spend a further five to six weeks in recovery.

“We’ve been able to start Harry’s running program which is a really positive sign,” Boyd said.

“Unfortunately, the location of the injury is going to require us to be a little more conservative in his rehab which means he’ll have more extended time out.”

Veteran forward Jack Gunston will remain sidelined in Round 15 with the club expecting to know more about Gunston’s timeline moving forward in the next week.

“Over the past three weeks, Jack’s begun to build back his running loads and is making steady progress,” Boyd said.

“We’re trying a couple of interventions at the moment to see if we can settle down those last few symptoms he has before we progress his program further.

“At this stage it’s still a week to week proposition for Jack.”

Mitch Lewis continues to make progress through the required concussion protocols, his availability to play will be determined closer to the match.

“Mitch has made steady progress through the concussion protocols over the past seven days.

“We’ll see how he’s tracking through the protocols later in the week.

“As with any concussion injury we want to make sure we take a conservative approach.”

Seamus Mitchell has made good progression through his rehab and in exciting news is now just a week away from being available for selection.

Mitchell was taken as the Hawks second pick in the 2020 National Draft but has been unable to take to the field at AFL or VFL level due to injury.
