Caddy (knee) is available for selection this week after taking part in a scratch match over the weekend, Peter Ryan of The Age reports.
ANALYSIS
Caddy could be a solid inclusion for the Tigers, though he failed to score a goal in any but the last game he participated in Sept. 19. He isn't guaranteed to be included Friday but will raise his hand and should be in the mix for a look after a tough loss to Brisbane in the qualifying final.

Has knee problem
FRichmond Tigers
Knee
September 19, 2020
Caddy injured his knee in the second quarter but returned in the third quarter during Saturday's 77-33 win over Adelaide, according to Marc McGowan of the league's official website.
ANALYSIS
Caddy kicked goals on either side of his injury in an attempt to keep his place in the team, as he only just returned to the field in this match. One can only hope that he did not cause any more damage by returning to the field, but more will be known after Caddy is evaluated during the week. There's also some time to recover before the finals begin, so Caddy may not even miss any matches.
Back in action
FRichmond Tigers
August 7, 2020
Caddy (hamstring) will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's clash with the Kangaroos, Grace Kalac of the Tigers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Caddy has been sidelined since Round 7 with a hamstring complaint but rejoins the mix for Saturday's clash, slotting in among the followers. Caddy has an impressive eight-mark, 19-disposal game under his belt earlier in the season, displaying the sort of upside he can have when healthy.
Set for multi-week absence

Hamstring
July 20, 2020
Caddy is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks after suffering a left hamstring injury in Saturday's 77-23 win over North Melbourne in Round 7, Mitch Cleary of AFL.com.au reports.
ANALYSIS
Richmond is labeling Caddy's injury as a "medium-term" concern, with the projected 4-to-6-week absence likely to cost him at least half of the Tigers' remaining 10 matches on the season. Caddy previously missed a Round 2 match against Collingwood with a minor calf issue, so it makes sense that the Tigers intend to take a more cautious approach with him now that he's dealing with a more serious soft-tissue injury.
Exits contest early

Calf
July 18, 2020
Caddy picked up a hamstring injury in the second quarter of Saturday's fixture with North Melbourne and was unable to return to the pitch as a result.
ANALYSIS
Caddy was well on his way to having a nice showing with five disposals before he hobbled off in the second period with a hamstring issue. The Tiger forward also sustained a calf injury back in June and a second stint could lead to some more missed time in order for him to fully recover.
Balanced performance Sunday
FRichmond Tigers
July 6, 2020
Caddy amassed 19 disposals (12 kicks, seven handballs), eight marks and four tackles in Sunday's 79-52 victory over Melbourne.
ANALYSIS
Caddy continues to work into good form for the Tigers after a delayed resumption due to a minor calf injury. On a day when the Tigers suffered a few key injuries, Caddy took it upon himself to feature more prominently. The Tigers will now leave Melbourne for the foreseeable future as the state of Victoria goes into lockdown. Caddy will look to build on this performance against the Swans on Sunday.
