Stephen Hill on modified program at Fremantle with quad injury

Fremantle’s Stephen Hill played only 13 games last season because of recurring quad injuries and it seems he has yet to shake the issue, this week moving to a restricted training program because of soreness in the same muscle.
Hill returned to the track early this pre-season after a disappointing 2018 but has already suffered discomfort in his left leg while kicking.
General manager of football Peter Bell said the club was seeking specialist advice on how to address the early setback.
“Options to rectify the issue are being considered by our medical team, with Stephen on a modified program until a preferred solution is decided on,” Bell said in a statement.
Hill injured his left quad against Richmond in round seven, then sustained a grade one tear in his right quad against North Melbourne three weeks later.
His season was finally over after another quad problem picked up against West Coast in August.
The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end on next season and eligible for free agency.
