Addo-Carr Still Not Ready to Return

Ben H / 12 May 2023

Josh Addo-Carr’s return came earlier than anyone expected.

The Bulldogs star injured his ankle and knee on Good Friday, and the initial expectation was that he would be out of action for up to two months.

However, against all odds, he became available again and put himself back into contention for the State of Origin opener.

All he needed was to go through the Thursday training session unscathed.

Thursday’s Training Session Didn’t Go as Planned

Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and the winger may miss out on the State of Origin series again after being overlooked last year.

The news coming from the Bulldogs’ camp is that despite Addo-Carr doing his best to return a week ahead of schedule, he wasn’t ready.

According to reports, Thursday’s training session didn’t go according to plan.

Luckily for Blues and Bulldogs fans, Channel 7 reported that the speedster didn’t reinjure himself. It was probably just a case of the Foxx returning a bit too early.

After this latest development, it remains to be seen whether Addo-Carr will be able to fight his way back into contention for the Origin opener on May 31.

Before Thursday’s practice, Bulldogs coach Cameron Ciraldo was hoping that Addo-Carr would go through training and return a week earlier than expected.

The coach said that Addo-Carr “put in a lot of hard work” to get to a point where he was so close to getting back in the team and that his experience and communication would “add a fair bit” for the Bulldogs.

Ciraldo praised the player for staying longer hours than anyone else and “ticking every box” to get back on the field as early as possible.

The coach said that showed how much the 27-year-old had matured and how much he wanted to help his teammates.
