Melbourne midfielder Angus Brayshaw will miss a month of full training after suffering an elbow injury.
The 24-year-old picked up the injury while smothering a kick at training last week and was spotted at Dees training on Monday with an elbow brace.
He will be able to continue running but won’t train with the main group for another month as he attempts to recover from the setback.
It puts his participation in the club’s first pre-season match against Adelaide on February 22 in doubt.
Brayshaw played all 22 games for Melbourne in 2019, average 22.1 touches, four marks and four tackles.
