Geelong remains hopeful star forward Jeremy Cameron will be available to play against Sydney next Friday night after scans cleared the 28-year-old of internal injury issues.
Cameron was sent to hospital midway through the second half of Saturdayâ€™s game against the Bombers after a bone-crunching clash with Essendonâ€™s Jayden Laverde in the first quarter.
He was discharged from hospital on Saturday night and returned home with a hip pointer injury. The Cats will work towards getting him ready for the massive clash against Sydney at the SCG, with Lance Franklin just four goals away from reaching his 1000-goal milestone.
Cameron looked dangerous against the Bombers, kicking two goals in the first quarter before he ran back with the flight of the ball in somewhat kamikaze fashion and met Laverde, who was trailing his opponent, Tom Hawkins, into the ball.
Hawkins was paid the mark despite Laverde being accidentally taken out of the contest. Laverde left the ground in the arms of the trainers but later returned, although he was sore throughout.
The Cats will be without young key defender Sam De Koning after he was concussed in the third quarter, having impressed in defence, while the Bombers have lost Kyle Langford to another hamstring injury.
