Tough news for Docherty as he can’t play for C#nton next year.
Silver lining though, he doesn’t have to play for C#nton next year.

Jarrod Pickett chases Jack Silvagni at Carlton training

CARLTON forward Jarrod Pickett was carted from the field at training on Thursday morning after suffering a suspected knee injury in a scary incident at Ikon Park.

Pickett’s right leg looked to buckle underneath him in the early stages of the club’s final session before Christmas, with a stretcher forced to help him from the field.

Training was halted for a short period as the 22-year-old left the track, with the club sending the lively forward straight for scans to assess the severity of the injury.

Carlton coach Brendon Bolton accompanied Pickett as he left the field, with the Blues hopeful the injury doesn’t add to an already disastrous start to the club’s pre-season.

New co-captain Sam Docherty has already been ruled out for the majority of the 2019 campaign, having ruptured his ACL for the second successive time earlier in the month.

Pickett had been primed for a breakout season in 2018, before breaking his wrist in training on the eve of round one and subsequently missing the majority of the campaign.

He had only just resumed training with the main squad, having started his pre-season campaign with the VFL team after returning from holidays slightly out of shape.

Just saw that.

He’s terrible anyway.
But this probably spells the end of his career.


#4976

Who?


#4977

even worse now


#4978

Disagree.

When he’s fit, he’s a guy who got in the bests once in 10 games in Carlton’s VFL side, and an ordinary AFL role player.

When he was a perenially injured GWS former pick 5, he was an open book of potential talent.


#4979

true- being perennially injured can help a career


#4980

It won’t get better if you Pickett.


#4981

Ouch. What a lousy Christmas this is going to be for the poor guy. Still it could have been worse, he might have ended up playing a few games for the Blooos next season, so we could say he has had a lucky if somewhat painful escape. Lesson learned.


#4982

If there was one club that can’t afford injuries…
Wonder who Adelaide will draft with pick #1?


#4983

are the Bloos still bragging about poaching Andrew Russell?


#4984

Think Adelaide might have to settle with Pick 2. Carlton would have to lose another 5 of their guns to grab the spoon off Gold Coast.


#4985

Haha, good one.


#4986

It’s a relative term. A gun at Fark Carlton is probably a good ordinary VFL player at most other clubs.


#4987

Except for Cripps who would be top 5 at any club


#4988

And that Curnow kid goes ok as well, he can football a bit.


#4989

And top 1 at most…


#4990

Hope the kid is ok.
pickett being out will have barely any impact on their 2019 season IMO. if they get another mature age rookie in, they might even be in a better position.

Docherty will hurt, this one not so much.
but yeh multiple knee injuries is not a good positon to be in.
is their training surface not up to scratch? or have they been very unlucky.

I remember back in the day when we trained at windy hill and ground was hard during summer as they were playing cricket matches on it.

Francis is better
