Out up to eight weeks
RBrisbane Lions
Back
July 23, 2020
Martin will not play for up to eight weeks due to a stress fracture in his back.
ANALYSIS
Martin had reportedly been playing through the issue in recent weeks but will take some time off to get well. He will undergo more scans to get some clarity on the timeline for his return, but it appears multiple weeks on the sidelines are likely.
Back for Saturday
RBrisbane Lions
July 2, 2020
Martin (hamstring) will play in Saturday's match versus Port Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Martin's return is a significant development for the Lions, as the team's main ruck will be available for the clash among two of the ladder's top teams. As seemed likely to be the case, Archie Smith has been dropped from the lineup with Martin back in his usual spot. It hasn't been a particularly sterling start for the veteran and another tough matchup in the ruck awaits.
Decent chance to return
RBrisbane Lions
Hamstring
June 30, 2020
Martin (hamstring) is slated to do a full training session on Thursday and may be available for selection in round 5.
ANALYSIS
Martin has missed each of the last two contests due to various issues but looks to be in much better shape this week as far as his injury goes. Should he return to action, a tough matchup awaits him and the Lions against ladder leaders Port Adelaide.
Out another week
RBrisbane Lions
Hamstring
June 25, 2020
Martin will not take part in Sunday's match versus the Crows due to a slight hamstring strain.
ANALYSIS
Martin is set to miss his second straight contest due to the hamstring problem. Without the veteran ruck available, the Lions will turn to Archie Smith and Oscar McInerney as the two rucks. On the plus side, Martin doesn't seem too far from retaking the field.
Out with knee soreness
RBrisbane Lions
Knee - PCL
June 18, 2020
Martin will not play in Saturday's match versus the Eagles due to knee soreness.
ANALYSIS
Martin required some treatment during the team's Round 2 match versus Fremantle as he continues to make his way back to full strength following a PCL injury in the season opener. He will give his knee rest in Round 3 and look to be more fit for a Round 4 return versus Adelaide. Ruckman Archie Smith will join the starting 18 in his place.
