Pies play down Elliott scans after he leaves training

Elliott's scans, AFLX debut, Dees train Nat Edwards with a pre-season update

COLLINGWOOD insists Jamie Elliott has had only precautionary scans despite leaving training early on Friday.

The small forward was spotted leaving the track not long after the session began.

A short time later the 25-year-old attended the nearby scanning clinic at AAMI Park.

Having missed all of 2016 with back problems, Elliott played 17 games this year.

However, 2017 wasn't without injury concerns as he suffered ankle problems.

Elliott avoided reporters as he left the scanning centre through a side door.

Collingwood said Elliott wasn't officially due to start his pre-season until Monday, and the scans were only precautionary to assess the state of last year's injuries.
