Richmond defender Graham Polak, who was hit by a tram, remains "tired and confused" and is expected to sleep most of Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for the AFL club says the 24-year-old who was hit by a tram on Saturday night was eating and able to recognise names and faces.

"Graham is still very tired and confused and is expected to spend most of today sleeping," said Tigers spokeswoman Judith Donnelly.

"A major milestone is that he is now eating and he is continuing to recognise some names and faces during the brief time he is awake."

Tigers president Gary March met with the Polak family at The Alfred hospital on Wednesday morning.

"Graham still has a very long way to go in his recovery," Mr March said.

"However, the club remains optimistic and we have been buoyed by the support of our supporters and also the general community."

The club has received more than 600 messages of support for Polak and his family.

Polak awoke from an induced coma on Monday after suffering brain bruising when he was hit by the tram while crossing Dandenong Road in the Melbourne suburb of Armadale on Saturday night.
