Gresham will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after injuring his right Achilles tendon in St. Kilda's 143-68 loss to Essendon on Saturday, AFL.com reports.
Gresham fell to the ground in the second quarter of Saturday's contest and, after being helped to the locker room, was seen wearing a boot on his right leg and using crutches. "He'll be out for nine months," St. Kilda head coach Brett Ratten said following the loss, adding, "He's popped his Achilles."

In lineup for Community Series
MSt Kilda Saints
March 3, 2021
Gresham (back) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's Community Series tilt versus the Blues, Chris Nice of the Saints' official site reports.
Gresham missed the last month-plus of the 2020 season due to a back injury but has healed up in the offseason and he is gearing up for the 2021 run. Gresham is listed as a centre for the contest, so he should be in line for a good chunk of disposals again after tallying 17.5 per contest a season ago.
Could miss remainder of 2020
MSt Kilda Saints
August 12, 2020
Gresham may miss the remainder of the 2020 season after scans revealed a stress fracture in his lower back, Mitch Cleary of the AFL's official site reports.
Gresham is expected to be reassessed after six weeks and may opt to leave the team to finish out his recovery elsewhere. In any event, Gresham is facing a lengthy recovery that is set to cost him significant time. His absence is a major blow for a St. Kilda squad that had been performing well up until last week's blowout loss to Geelong.
In line to play

Gresham (eye) is slated to play Thursday versus Carlton.
Gresham's eye was swollen in a major way Saturday, but the swelling has reportedly come down enough to put him in a good spot to avoid missing action. Look for him to resume his usual duties working in the Saints' midfield.
Takes shot to eye

Gresham took a shot to the eye during Saturday's match versus Richmond.
Gresham's left eye was massively swollen during the contest, leading to him being assessed on the sideline. He should have plenty of ice on it in the coming days and will likely be assessed ahead of Round 5. It's best to consider him a question mark for the match until the team releases an official designation for the week.
Officially in for Round 2

June 12, 2020
Gresham (knee) has been selected for Round 2 versus the Bulldogs.
Gresham appeared to be training without issue earlier in the week and his selection is confirmation of just that. He posted 12 disposals -- seven kicks and five handballs - to go along with two marks and a behind in the opener versus North Melbourne.
