Foot op for young AFL Cat Corey Gregson

AAP logoAAP 28/07/2016

Geelong young gun Cory Gregson has undergone surgery to insert screws in his foot.

The AFL club confirmed Gregson would miss the rest of the season a week ago but were optimistic he wouldn't require surgery on a stress fracture.

Specialists have since convinced the Cats otherwise.

"We want to do everything possible to avoid a recurrence of this injury therefore surgery was decided as the best option for Cory," Geelong's football manager Steve Hocking said.

"All went well yesterday and Cory will begin a rehab program in the coming weeks with the aim to have him return to training early next year."

The 19-year-old was nominated for the league's Rising Star award in 2015 and has played 29 games.
