Swans defender Richards set to return

Sydney key defender Ted Richards is set to return from a fractured eye socket on Saturday when his AFL side face Richmond at the MCG.

Richards hasn’t played since suffering the injury in round five, when he was best on ground against West Coast.

“He’s been back training since last week,” Swans physiotherapist Matt Cameron told the club website.

“He’s gong well, feeling good and he’s got clearance to play.”

Kieren Jack (sprained ankle) and Ben McGlynn (corked thigh) are also expected to tackle the Tigers after suffering minor injuries in the Swans’ 81-point win over Essendon.

But youngster Dan Robinson will miss at least one week, having dislocated his shoulder in the SCG clash.

“He’s seeing the surgeon tomorrow to get an opinion on what to do next regarding surgery or whether he’s able to continue,” Cameron said.

“At this stage he’s not playing this week.”

Meanwhile, Western Bulldogs defender Marcus Adams has undergone surgery to mend a fractured finger.

Adams will miss Sunday’s game at the MCG, where the Bulldogs face Melbourne.
