AFL – Harley Bennell (Melbourne)

#AFLFantasy Harley Bennell (calf) suffers minor tear

Bennell this week strained his troublesome left calf as he auditions for a fresh contract with Melbourne.

While the tear is only understood to be minor, it’s a potentially devastating blow for the injury-cursed midfielder, who is clinging to the possibility of securing a Demons contract under pre-season supplemental selection period rules.

There is no time frame on how long this will keep Bennell out of training but its a timely reminder of those looking at him in AFL Fantasy formats to temper expectations.
