Scans reveal stress fracture for Trengove

Scans on Melbourne's Jack Trengove have revealed the early onset of a stress fracture in his left foot.

Trengove will wear a protective boot for the next six weeks, and will miss the Demons' nine-day training camp in Darwin.

Melbourne's Football Manager Josh Mahoney said it was a disappointing setback for the 21-year-old.

"We expect Jack to be able to begin his running program in January. His rehab will be continually assessed but at this stage we are hopeful that he'll be available for the start of the AFL season.

"The positive element to this is that the stress fracture was identified early, which will allow Jack to begin his rehab immediately."
