Adelaide ruckman Sam Jacobs has undergone successful knee surgery on Wednesday.

Ongoing meniscal symptoms, which inhibited Jacobs’ ability to progress training loads on Tuesday, confirmed the need for surgical intervention.

The 31-year-old has not played since Round Two when he sustained a collision injury to his right knee.

Crows Science and Medical Services Coordinator Steve Saunders said surgery was deemed the best option by the Club’s medical team.

“Given the complex nature of Sam’s meniscal pathology, a period of time and conservative management was first required,” Saunders said.

“It became clearer this week, with persisting meniscal signs under graduated load progressions, that surgical intervention would serve him best in both the short and long-term.

“We expect Sam to progress quickly through the next 4-6 weeks of rehab and be back to his best.”
