Gold Coast Suns skipper Gary Ablett took to Twitter on Monday to announce that the scans on his injured right knee were “all good”.

The Brownlow medalist injured his knee during the Suns 70-point loss to Sydney at Metricon Stadium on Saturday night.

It was feared Ablett could miss up to a month after he hobbled off during first quarter but scans on Monday revealed no structural damage.

“Scans are good! Just showed some swelling … nothing serious!” Ablett said on Twitter.

Ablett has given himself every chance to play in this weekends clash against Richmond which will be hosted at Cazaly Stadium in Cairns.

“Hopefully this week!” Ablett said in reply to one fan asking when he would return.

Suns fans and Dreamteam coaches will still need to wait anxiously for Ablett to get through a training session on Friday and will need to be 100% in order to line up against the Tigers.

“We really won’t know until we see how he moves at training,” Suns general manager of football operations Marcus Ashcroft said.

“If he does everything the fitness staff expect of him and pulls up OK, he is a chance.

“But if he shows any signs of soreness we’ll be more cautious.”
