Peter Wright leaves Essendon Bombers training with calf problems

Essendon Best and Fairest winner Peter Wright left the track on Wednesday morning after apparently injuring his calf while flying for a mark early in the match simulation.

The 26-year-old put ice on his calf but the club said it was more of a precautionary measure as the players were on a five-day break.

The key forward was a bright light for the Bombers in 2022 as he enjoyed a breakout season and scored 53 goals in an otherwise disappointing season for the club.

Wright has been a resilient pick-up for Essendon, playing 43 out of a possible 45 games for the club since being traded from Gold Coast in late 2020.

The Bombers recruited former Demon Sam Weideman during the offseason as they attempted to add depth to the key forward. He remains on a modified program but should return to full training in early February.

Essendon has set out to improve his fitness in the first pre-season under new coach Brad Scott. Their first draft pick of the 2022 National Draft, Elijah Tsatas, underwent surgery last week to repair an acute meniscus tear in his knee.
