Injured Fraser wants to play on Friday

Collingwood ruckman Josh Fraser has received encouraging news on the knee injury he suffered in Saturday night's AFL Hall of Fame tribute match.

Playing for Victoria, Fraser damaged the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his right knee at a centre-bounce ruck contest during the final term of the 17-point win over the Dream Team at the MCG.

Initially, it was feared Fraser would be out for up to 10 weeks with a PCL tear.

Fraser will undergo scans on Monday, but Collingwood are now confident it is a strain, rather than a tear.

Magpies football manager Geoff Walsh said Fraser was keen to play in Friday night's Telstra Dome game against St Kilda.

But Collingwood will monitor Fraser over the next day or two to see how he pulls up.

West Coast and Dream Team midfielder Daniel Kerr went to hospital after hurting his lower leg early in Saturday night's game.

Again, his injury is not as serious as initially feared.

Kerr still has two weeks to serve of a three-game suspension for head-butting.
