Ryder goes under the knife after brutal head-clash


//

Port Adelaide ruckman Paddy Ryder has had surgery to repair a depressed fracture of a cheekbone with his club hopeful he will play in their AFL premiership season opener against Melbourne on March 23.

Ryder's operation on Monday was a success and the 30-year-old is recovering well, the Power said in a statement.

Port medicos will further assess Ryder when all players return to training on Thursday following a four-day break.

Ryder suffered the injury after a head-clash with teammate Robbie Gray, but Gray revealed that there was no hard feelings between he and his star teammate after the injury.

"I pulled up fine," Gray told Nine News.

"Obviously a bit sore at the time, but I was fine. I was able to play out the game and pulled up pretty well so no dramas there.

"No hard feelings. We were having a bit of a laugh about it. Obviously didn't see each other coming."

Ryder's teammate Jarrod Lienert remains unlikely for the start of the premiership season after straining a medial ligament in a knee in Saturday's trial game win against North Melbourne.

And untried second-year draftee Jake Patmore had knee reconstruction surgery on Monday, ruling him out of the entire season.
