Melbourne's Trengove To Miss Rest Of Season

Melbourne Demons' former co-captain Jack Trengove will miss the rest of the AFL season with a broken foot. 
The Demons released the statement on Tuesday after scans of Trengove's left foot revealed a crack of the navicular bone.
Trengove had said his foot was sore after his VFL game for the Casey Scorpions on Sunday. 
The 22 year old had surgery on Wednesday and recovery time will take about four months.
Melbourne's football manager Josh Mahoney says he sees Trengove being better than ever in 2015. 
"Jack's attitude has been outstanding this year, particularly in recent weeks whilst playing in the VFL, and for this to happen to him is really unfortunate," Mahoney said. 
"He is a resilient character. At Melbourne, we've had two examples of players who have had this type of injury in Colin Garland and Jack Grimes and they both made full recoveries.
"We expect Jack to make a full recovery, and be available for day one of pre-season training."
Trengove suffered a stress fracture to his foot in December 2012, an injury that cost him the pre-season and while he was back last season, he was not at full potential. 
Trengove gave up the captaincy at the end of last season and was dropped after round two this year. He has 81 career games, including 20 in 2013.
