Sydneys injured stars will be put through their paces on Wednesday, with ruckman Kurt Tippett shaping up well in his bold bid to play Friday nights AFL preliminary final. Air Max 97 Baratas Hombre .Swans coach John Longmire and the clubs medical staff face some tough calls this week, with Tippett (broken jaw), Gary Rohan (bruised leg), Jarrad McVeigh (calf strain) and Callum Mills (hamstring strain) all in doubt for the clash with Geelong.Scans have cleared both Rohan and McVeigh, who were hurt in the Swans semi-final win over Adelaide, of serious damage.There was a sense of relief at the SCG on Monday, especially for Rohan given the speedster was taken from the field on a stretcher and has endured a luckless run since breaking his leg in 2012.But McVeigh and Rohan still face an uphill battle as they seek to prove their fitness during a six-day turnaround.Tippett and Mills, who were injured in week one of the finals, are also in the mix for a recall but likewise have a lot of work to do in a short space of time.Longmire was reluctant to comment about the quartets chances of tackling Geelong, noting the clubs training session on Wednesday would be crucial.We dont want to rule anyone in or out. Well give them every opportunity, Longmire said on Monday.Well certainly get more of an idea on Wednesday but we may have to wait until Thursday and see how players pull up from training.Mills ran laps on Monday morning but Sydney will be reluctant to roll the dice on him and McVeigh given the risk of recurrence with their respective setbacks.Tippett has trained well since his jaw was inadvertently broken by Callan Ward in a ruck contest and is considered the most likely of the sidelined Swans to be picked.He was able to play out the game against GWS. He was able to train really well here on Sunday, Longmire said.Itll come down to a discussion between coaching staff, medical staff and Kurt on Wednesday. Then well see how he pulls up and how he feels.Zak Jones, who has recovered from a nasty concussion, Harry Cunningham and Dean Towers are the frontrunners to be recalled should Longmire be forced to make some changes.Rohan was clearly distressed and in a lot of pain after hurting himself in a marking contest on Saturday night.There was no shortage of speculation about the 25-year-olds setback, with pundits diagnoses ranging from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) to bone damage.Thats why its important not to to jump to too many conclusions too early, Longmire said.It was obviously a concern for him and his family after being through what hes been through a few years ago in that particular leg.You can understand his apprehension but it was great news when he got the results back of the scans that the bone itself was in good nick. Undefeated Air Max 97 Precio .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. Air Max 97/1 Wotherspoon . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. Chadd Sayers is set to make it four of a possible four debutants for Australia in the day/night Test at Adelaide Oval on Thursday.ESPNcricinfo understands Sayers will join Matt Renshaw, Peter Handscomb and Nic Maddinson as part of the most drastically changed Australian Test team in more than 30 years, reflecting the dire circumstances in which he will enter the arena.Having been the most prolific Sheffield Shield wicket-taker of the past four seasons, Sayers will be granted the chance to swerve and seam the pink ball at the Adelaide Oval, where he plays for South Australia.The selectors have had Sayers in their thoughts since he was taken to New Zealand earlier this year. However, a foot injury sustained during the Sheffield Shield final on his return left him without a full pre-season, nor the opportunity to bowl for Australia A. Instead it was Sayers teammate Joe Mennie who got the first chance after Peter Siddle suffered a recurrence of a back complaint during the Perth Test.Sayers had first played for Australia A on a tour of the British Isles in 2013, after which he was told he did not have enough pace. I guess when you are taking wickets and then told you are not quick enough you probably questtion why, Sayers said after South Australias most recent Shield match, against Queensland in Brisbane. Air Max 98 Tour Yellow. But I pushed on, kept taking wickets and here I am. I am never going to be a bloke who blasts sides out. If I get the chance I am not going to change anything - I am going to keep doing what got me this far.The inclusion of Sayers leaves only the question of whether or not Australia will go for four seamers in Adelaide or choose the spin of Nathan Lyon, who narrowly kept his place in the squad due mainly to a calf injury to Steve OKeefe.Jackson Bird, the other seam option, is back in the squad after being told he had been left out of the Perth squad due to Mennies superior lower-order batting. He played in a recent Shield match in Adelaide where Sayers claimed 11 wickets to rout Tasmania.Chadds been the best performer in Shield cricket for the last couple of years, Bird said. We played him here a few weeks ago and he hit the same spot every time and got 11 wickets for the match.He bowls an immaculate line and length, and hes got a great record here in Adelaide.
