McGovern suffers back fracture


STAR Carlton recruit Mitch McGovern has suffered a pre-season setback, the former Crow sustaining a back fracture in a training drill.

The Blues reported the 23-year-old has “a small, non-displaced fracture of the back” after he was sent for scans on Friday.

“Often with this type of injury players can miss one to two games during the season, while for others it’s not uncommon to not miss any at all,” Carlton football chief Brad Lloyd said.
