Essendon’s Hird discharged from hospital

Essendon AFL coach James Hird has been discharged from hospital and will likely be fit to coach the Bombers on Friday despite suffering a severe concussion after a heavy fall from his bicycle.

“James is in good spirits and will continue to rest up at home today,” Essendon said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The club expects James will be able to coach on Friday night but will make a decision following further assessment with Doctor Bruce Reid tomorrow.”
