“He is free from structural damage, which is like the first box checked as far as prognosis is concerned,” said Collingwood high performance boss Jarrod Wade. .
“Now we continue with function and what he can do. He is not 100% yet, but about 80-85% when it comes to velocity output which we know is most important for the hamstrings. Friday’s evaluation will see what level of capability we have.”
De Goey missed the Swans’ game last weekend after battling a hip flexor problem.
However, although he ran on both Tuesday and Wednesday, he will not be given the green light to play.

Taylor Adams also overcame an adductor problem and is set to return in the first week of finals.
