Stringer (ankle) will rejoin the lineup for Round 13 versus Richmond.
ANALYSIS
Stringer was handed a timetable of up to three months on the sidelines following his syndesmosis foot issue but has apparently cleared the problem well in advance of that. He will play his first contest since early July on Saturday and is slotted in at full forward alongside James Stewart and Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti.

Faces lengthy absence
FEssendon Bombers
Ankle
July 3, 2020
Stringer (ankle) could miss up to three months due to a syndesmosis injury, Fox Footy reports.
ANALYSIS
Stringer was injured during Friday's 63-48 win over Collingwood, and after a few tests, coach John Worsfold came forward with the tough news. While there isn't a clear timeline, Stringer will miss at least four weeks, and if he needs surgery, it could be three months until he sees the field again.
Scores three, leaves with ankle injury

Ankle
July 3, 2020
Stringer scored three goals and made seven tackles during Friday's 63-48 win over Collingwood before leaving late with an ankle injury.
ANALYSIS
Stringer sits among the league's best in goals scored, but he doesn't collect many disposals and his performance Friday was helped by his higher tackle numbers. Unfortunately, the breakout night was scarred by the late ankle injury that saw him leave the stadium with a boot on his right leg. He will likely head for scans on the ankle that should help determine the severity of the issue.
Should be fine despite foot injury
FEssendon Bombers
June 6, 2020
String departed Saturday's training session due to an apparent foot injury, but manager Dan Richardson indicated that he is fine and was able to return later, Jon Pierike and Peter Ryan of The Age reports. "He went off as someone stood on his foot but he came back out and looked good," said Richardson.
ANALYSIS
Stringer went for scans on his foot Friday, but there doesn't seem to be any real concern regarding his status for Round 2. He opened the season with a solid showing versus Fremantle, racking up two goals, three behinds and nine kicks, and will look to keep the good times rolling versus Sydney following the hiatus.
