Doc Larkins says Nat Fyfe’s back injury is with him ‘for life’
Nat Fyfe’s bulging disc will be with him for life.
The 2015 Brownlow Medalist suffered the injury in a training session, and could miss a chunk of pre-season.
Dr Peter Larkins told Sports Today most injuries like this do not require surgery.
‘It can settle down within 3-4 weeks,’ Doc Larkins said on Monday night.
‘Most people can get back to normal activity even if the disc is still bulging a little bit.’
But Doc said Fyfe would be playing with the injury ‘for the rest of his life.’
