ANALYSIS
Astbury hasn't taken part on the AFL side since June 27, but it sounds as though there's a chance he will get a run with the club for the finale of the home and away season. Either way, the knee injury appears to be a thing of the past.

Astbury (knee) has suffered a setback in his recovery and is expected to miss the next two games, Marc McGowan of AFL Media reports.

The Tigers' Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge indicated Wednesday that Astbury (knee) likely needs a little more time to heal up.
