Crow Seedsman to miss AFL season


Adelaide winger Paul Seedsman’s AFL season has been written off as he continues to battle ongoing effects from concussion.

Seedsman and Crows captain Rory Sloane, who had a knee reconstruction last month, have been shifted onto the club’s inactive list for the rest of the campaign.

The move will allow Adelaide two selections in next Wednesday’s mid-season rookie draft but ends any hope of Seedsman playing this season.

The winger, who finished third in Adelaide’s club champion award last season, was concussed at training last December and hasn’t returned to full training.

“Unfortunately both Rory and Paul are dealing with serious injuries and won’t play again this year,” Adelaide’s list manager Justin Reid said in a statement on Thursday.

“Rory has started his rehabilitation from a knee reconstruction and we look forward to him returning to the field next year.

“And while Paul is making some progress in his recovery from conc ussion, he continues to experience symptoms and his health and wellbeing remains the priority.

“By placing both of them on the inactive list it gives us the flexibility to add to our squad in next week’s mid-season draft should we choose.

“Our recruiting and list management team will continue to discuss our options before finalising our position ahead of the draft.”

Seedsman, 30, has played 132 AFL games and moved to Adelaide from Collingwood at the end of the 2015 season.
