Essendon midfielder Dylan Shiel has surgery on knee
Essendon midfielder Dylan Shiel is unlikely to play again this year.
The Bomber star has had surgery on his knee.
The club said he’d miss four months, making a return in 2021 highly unlikely.
It said the decision was made with a long-term view to Shiel’s career.
In better news for the Bombers, captain Dyson Heppell has been rated a “likely” chance of returning to the field this week against Sydney.
