Dangerfield calf issue

Geelong have allayed fears over the fitness of Patrick Dangerfield after he picked up a calf issue in the 35-point win over Port Adelaide.

The Cats are gunning to make the top eight this season and will be keeping their fingers crossed after Dangerfield left the field in the final quarter never to return.

Scott cools fears

However Geelong coach Chris Scott says the player came off more as a precaution and they are hopeful there is nothing serious with the calf. The medical staff made the call and Scott believes it was the right one.

"By that stage the game was iced," Scott told reporters after the game. "He was a bit tight in his calf. The only feedback we've got at the moment was that it was tight and he shouldn’t go back on given the score."

When asked about the severity of the injury, Scott added: "It's hard to say. My hope is it was just precautionary."

Scott pleased with Danger

It capped a tough week for Dangerfield who was in danger of missing out after suffering from illness during the week. He appeared to have a quiet game also before leaving the action.

However Scott was pleased with his contribution.

"I actually thought he was good," Scott added. "There's always a risk when a guy is bedridden during the week, you don’t know exactly how they're going to go."

"He was clearly good enough to play. I thought he had an impact on the game and was important."
