Stanley suffered a contact injury during Round 16 but is expected to play in Round 17 against Carlton, according to GM Simon Lloyd.

Stanley fashioned 22 disposals, seven marks, four clearances and a single tackle Friday as Geelong edged out Brisbane 81-80 at GMHBA Stadium.
With Brisbane's Oscar McInerney sidelined for Friday's contest, it was Stanley who shone at ruck, producing career numbers for disposals (12 kicks, 10 handballs) and finishing one of only two players to record double-digit hitouts in the contest. Off to a strong start in 2021, the Lions veteran exits Round Two currently ranked #11 and #12 in the AFL for total hitouts and hitouts per game, respectively, and averaging a stately 87 fantasy points an outing - fifth-best amongst all players at his position.

Stanley will be available for selection in Round 1 against Adelaide, per the AFL's official website.
Stanley was dealing with a concussion but was able to overcome it and be ready for the first match of 2021. With Darcy Fort (knee) unfit, Stanley will be the top ruck for a quality team to start the season.
Sitting out Community Series

General Soreness

Stanley (soreness) will not play in Saturday's Community Series clash with the Tigers, Tom Collings of the Cats' official site reports.
Stanley was expected to be a late decision for the contest after suffering a heavy knock in a practice match last week. Even though he won't play Saturday, it sounds as though there is little concern about his status for the start of the regular season.
Late call for Essendon tilt

Stanley will be a late decision for Saturday's Community Series match against Essendon after taking a heavy knock in a practice match last week, according to Mitch Cleary of AFL.com.
There isn't anything to suggest that Stanley won't be ready for the Essendon match but there's also no guarantee that he'll play or not be limited in his minutes. He was able to put up decent numbers in 2020 with 212 hitouts and 10 goals in 11 games and should be ready for Round 1 against Adelaide if nothing else comes up.
