Essendon forward Stewart Crameri has been cleared of any serious damage to his hip following a heavy knock during Friday night’s 35-point win against Adelaide.

Football Operations Manager Steve Alessio said Crameri has no concerns and is expected to line up against Melbourne in Round 2.

“He had some scans on his hip today after copping a couple of knocks just to make sure everything is ok,” Alessio said.

“At this stage he looks fine and should be ready and raring to go against Melbourne in Round 2.”

Live wire Jason Winderlich is expected to take part in his first match of 2013 when he lines up in the club’s VFL practice match against Sandringham on Friday.

The 28-year-old has been training strongly in the last fortnight after being troubled by groin soreness throughout the pre-season.

“Jason is continuing in his return having built up his training program and is looking to play some game time this week in the VFL in preparation for the Round 2 match against Melbourne,” Alessio said.

Winderlich is likely to be joined by midfielder David Zaharakis in Friday’s practice match as the midfielder aims to gain further match practice ahead of the clash against the Demons.

“It is looking that way but depending what Hirdy decides whether I train with the seniors or play VFL I haven’t been told yet,” Zaharakis said.

“But just really looking forward to getting some more minutes into the legs before Round 2.”
