Sidebottom breaks silence on ruptured testicle


//

Collingwood star Steele Sidebottom is confident he will be right to face Geelong in a blockbuster qualifying final as he continues his recovery from a ruptured testicle.

Sidebottom had surgery last Wednesday after being inadvertently kicked in the groin during training, but told Nine News that he is progressing well from the setback.

"I thought it was just a normal hit to the balls but then the pain didn't disappear for a bit," he said.

"I had surgery on Wednesday night, it's Monday now and I feel pretty good. The way I've been progressing I think I'll be alright.

"I probably won't do anything this week and then hopefully get a few runs under my belt next week and hopefully I'll be right to go against the Cats."

Sidebottom is still not partaking in any running drills or football-related activities and will meet with his surgeon again on Wednesday to determine how to proceed in his rehab.

The positive news regarding Sidebottom's health comes as Collingwood football manager Geoff Walsh denied that star defender Darcy Moore had re-injured his troublesome hamstring.

Moore made his return after a long layoff in Round 23 against Essendon, but finished the clash on the bench.

"He has not re-injured it," Walsh said.

"He did report tightness and awareness but all the subsequent investigations are that he has not re-injured it, which is good news on one level."

Moore will have to complete Collingwood's two training sessions both this week and next week at a decent intensity if he is to line-up against the Cats.

Along with Sidebottom and Moore, the Magpies are also more than likely to welcome back dynamic forward duo Jordan de Goey and Jaidyn Stephenson.
