Cats’ Cameron cleared of internal damage

Geelong star Jeremy Cameron has left hospital after being cleared of serious internal injury following a huge collision in the Cats’ AFL victory over Essendon.

The ace forward kicked two goals in the first quarter of Saturday’s 66-point smashing of the Bombers at the MCG before pulling up sore after a contest with Essendon defender Jayden Laverde.

Cameron was taken to hospital on a stretcher during the final quarter but was able to return home after being assessed.

He suffered a hip pointer injury but was cleared of any serious rib or lung damage after struggling to breathe following the collision.

“I just had to go through the necessary things to tick off, make sure there was no internal bleeding,” Cameron said.

“Overall, feeling great and I’ll be here (at home) all day.”

It was a frustrating start for Cameron in his second season at Geelong after his 2021 campaign was frequently interrupted by hamstring issues.

Cameron wasn’t the only Geelong player to suffer an injury during the win, with young tall Sam De Koning to enter the AFL’s 12-day concussion protocols.

The Cats face a monster game against the Sydney at the SCG on Friday night with Swans superstar Lance Franklin just four goals away from reaching the 1000th major of his career.
