Injury list, R5: Lion available for selection after 266-day ACL journey

BRISBANE defender Kate Lutkins is available for selection this week, after rupturing her ACL in round one last season. Should she make her return in the Lions' match against Essendon on Sunday it will be just 266 days on the sidelines for the star.

"It’s been an extraordinary recovery from Kate and a testament to her diligence and professionalism throughout the rehab process," Brisbane high performance manager Matthew Green said. 

"Being in the late stages of her career and Kate’s desire to play every perceivable game possible, we’re pleased to see Kate return to full fitness at this stage of the season."
