Knee - ACL

Naismith (torn ACL) is increasing his workload but needs more time before he returns to a competitive match, according to Michael Whiting of AFL.com.

Naismith suffered a ruptured ACL Thursday against Western and will undergo surgery next week, ending his 2020 campaign, Marc McGowan of the AFL's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Naismith's injury leaves the Swans without the big man yet again after he missed the previous two seasons due to his first ruptured ACL. With a long road to recovery ahead, the Swans will need to look elsewhere for some help at the ruck.

Naismith is believed to have suffered his ACL for a second time during Thursday's match versus Western, Mitch Cleary of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
The Swans are expected to offer more information after he has scans done on the knee Friday, but the initial outlook for the ruckman initially appears bleak. It's a tough blow for both the Swans and Naismith, who played just his second game this season and missed all of the last two campaigns after following the first one.
Ready to go Thursday

June 24, 2020
Naismith (hamstring) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's Round 4 match versus Western.
ANALYSIS
Naismith earned a test tag from the team's injury report and has apparently earned the fitness approval of the medical staff. He's listed as an interchange but should see some action if his hamstring holds up, having posted 11 disposals, four tackles and 28 hitouts in the season opener versus Adelaide.
