Ryder, who has missed five games already but returned for the past three, says his injury won’t properly mend until post-season.

“I probably need a decent break for it to be able to come good, but obviously not going to be able to get that,” he told reporters today.

“Surgery isn’t necessary for it. I think it just needs a bit of TLC.”

The All Australian ruckman will be on a modified training program – one session a week – until season’s end.

“We have been through a little bit of trial and error,” Ryder said.

“And I think we, along with the physios and doc’s, have got it down-pat now.”
