Jeremy Howe plays his first game since breaking his arm in round one, tallying 20 disposals to go with nine rebound 50s, six intercept possessions, and 478m gained.

"Just to get the game day vibes again, to get the butterflies again. I've watched too much footy than what I would have liked in the past few years. Moments like these when you get to share it with the family are really special. Look forward to continuing on for hopefully the rest of the year," Howe said.

Jeremy Howe has suffers a setback in his recovery from a compound fracture, returning to hospital to treat an infection in his arm.

“The infection was picked up early by medical staff, and we don’t foresee any long-term issues," Collingwood's footy boss Graham Wright said.

Steele Sidebottom and Lynden Dunn are under investigation for breaching the AFL's strict COVID-19 protocols.

Sidebottom and Dunn, who was part of the club's leadership group last year, shared an Uber on Saturday evening and Sidebottom later visited a staff member who is not living under the game's protocols.

They were earlier at Magpies teammate Jeremy Howe's home to console him after his serious knee injury the previous night.

"Steele's a bit flummoxed by the events of the evening. He's very embarrassed and very contrite. He's been really forward with giving us any information that he has," Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said.

"He understands that he's made some poor decisions, in terms of his alcohol intake and then also with the COVID-19 restrictions as they sit. He understands that it's penalised his teammates in some shape or form."

Saturday, 27 June 2020

Friday, 26 June 2020
Jeremy Howe is set for an extended period on the sidelines after a brutal knee collision in the final quarter of the Pies' loss against GWS.

Howe and Jacob Hopper charged at one another in pursuit of the Sherrin, with the Magpie's right knee crashing into the side of the Giant as they smashed together.

Magpies coach Nathan Buckley said doctors' early diagnosis was that Howe has suffered damage to his medial and posterior cruciate ligaments.

"He's shattered. He wears his heart on his sleeve and he invests everything of himself, so we all feel pretty flat at the moment," Buckley said.

Wednesday, 4 March 2020
Scott Pendlebury is set to become Collingwood's longest-serving skipper after being named captain for a seventh straight season.

Steele Sidebottom will continue on as vice-captain, while Jeremy Howe and Taylor Adams have been elevated as leaders of the club. All-Australian ruckman Brodie Grundy and Jordan Roughead have also been added to the leadership group for the first time.

Lynden Dunn was in the group last year but is not currently on the list as he recovers from a second knee reconstruction.

Wednesday, 27 February 2019

Sunday, 30 September 2018
Jeremy Howe will require shoulder surgery and be sidelined for up to 12 weeks of the upcoming pre-season.

"I just need a bit of a tighten up," Howe said.

"It won't be too bad, but in saying that I haven't had shoulder surgery so I couldn't tell you.

"I think it might be a 12-week recovery phase but it needs to be done. If you're going to get it done you may as well do it in the off-season."

Monday, 5 February 2018
Jeremy Howe signs a new three-year deal with Collingwood to remain at the club until the end of 2021.

"Jeremy is in a strong position to play an important role in the club's success in the future," Collingwood football manager Geoff Walsh said in a statement.

"We're looking forward to his contribution over the next four years."

After spending most of his career as a wing/forward, Jeremy Howe says he has now settled into his role in defence at the Magpies.

"It wasn't the role I came here for, but I've definitely grabbed it and I feel like I've put together my most consistent 24 months of footy," he said.

"Until 'Bucks' [coach Nathan Buckley] taps me on the shoulder and asks me to go forward again, I think I'll spend the majority of the time down at half-back."

Friday, 29 September 2017
The AFL is considering taking judging for the Mark and Goal of the Year out of the fans' hands.

This follows controversy when Essendon forward Joe Daniher beat Collingwood high-flyer and hot favourite Jeremy Howe to win the 2017 Mark of the Year.

Howe's skyscraping effort over Melbourne swingman Tom McDonald in the Queen's Birthday game was widely acclaimed and considered as much a certainty to win.

"With the greatest respect to Joe Daniher, who's a star, an All Australian and a great mark, that mark (Howe's) was the best mark, I think – and quite clearly," AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan said.

"You can't have that. I know that's quite definitive, but I think if you've got a mark that's clearly better and it doesn't win, then the system has to be reviewed."

Thursday, 6 July 2017
Jeremy Howe is elevated to the role of vice-captain at Collingwood.

"My leadership is something that I have worked on and has grown over the years," Howe said.

"This year has been the most consistent year I've had trying to lead by example and with my footy as well."

Magpies coach Nathan Buckley said Howe had gone to another level in 2017.

"He's just elevated his impact on the group with that consistency, not just in performance but in driving the program, driving standards and driving training," Buckley said.

"That's everything we expect of a leader."

Wednesday, 25 May 2016
With Collingwood's backline ravaged by injury, Magpies coach Nathan Buckley sought out recruit Jeremy Howe at training a few weeks ago to deliver some news: he had to break a promise made in last year's trade period.

One of the key factors in Howe's move to the Magpies from Melbourne was based on his desire to play up forward, which was the crux of Buckley's pitch to Howe when the two met up in Bali to sign off on the deal in October last year. But Buckley needed a solution, and Howe was it.

"'Bucks' actually sat me down and said, 'Look I'm going to go against my word here, I said I'd never play you in the backline, but I'm going to ask you if you can,'" Howe said.

Howe's move to the backline now appears to be permanent after the high-flyer starred in Collingwood's 24-point win over Geelong last weekend.

His intercept marking and precise kicking added another dimension to the Magpies' backline, Howe amassing 22 disposals at 81.1 per cent efficiency, as well as hauling in 11 marks.

"Right now we need him as a backman and he fulfills that third tall defender's role for us," Buckley said.

"He comes across and impacts really well and he gives us a little bit of bite with our kicking out of the back half as well.

"I see him there in the foreseeable future, but we know he can impact the scoreboard up forward as well."

Tuesday, 23 February 2016
Jeremy Howe will miss all of the NAB Challenge and is no certainty to play in round one for Collingwood against the Sydney Swans.

Howe has struggled with right foot soreness and a broken finger in his first pre-season at the Magpies.

"It's been a broken pre-season, there's no two ways around it," Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said.

"He's handling the footy again, coming back off his hand operation. I don't know what the timeline is.

"He's going to have to build through the next six weeks to get up into contention. There's still plenty of steps for him to take before he's going to be a prospect for us at senior level."

Tuesday, 9 February 2016
Jeremy Howe suffers a broken finger which Collingwood claim was sustained while the Magpie recruit was playing frisbee with his dog, and not during a suburban cricket match.

After Howe underwent finger surgery following the injury, reports surfaced that the 25-year-old may have in fact suffered the injury while playing cricket.

The Magpies said that Howe had filled in for the Koonung Heights Cricket Club, which was short on numbers, in a local Twenty20 semi-final against Vermont last week.

But after grilling Howe about his version of events, the club was satisfied that he was telling the truth and that the injury happened later that night when he attempted to catch a frisbee while walking his dog with his girlfriend.

"There's probably no hope of him playing round one. With these two things going against him, it's going to be hard for him to get in front of it," Magpies football manager Neil Balme said.

Friday, 8 January 2016
Jeremy Howe's pre-season has been slowed by a foot problem but he says it shouldn't keep him out of full training for long.

"I've got a bit of foot soreness in my right foot," Howe said.

"With any luck, that settles down pretty quickly over the weekend which will enable me to get back into full training again.

"Apart from that, my fitness levels are really good. I was running well and training well before that.

Friday, 18 December 2015
Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley says Jeremy Howe was specifically recruited to be a forward for the Magpies.

"He'll (Howe) play centre-forward for us. We've recruited him with that in mind," Buckley said.

"He's come off a hip operation but he's training pretty well. What he shows on the track is his speed, endurance repetition."

Tuesday, 20 October 2015
Collingwood recruit Jeremy Howe admits he has something to prove at his new club.

"The consistency has obviously been an issue ... I feel like I do have the ability to be a consistent player," Howe said.

"From game zero to 100, I haven't been able to do that consistently.

"I feel like my next 100 are going to be the ones (where) I can provide the footy I know I can play.

"I have something to prove. I need to come here and work really hard to get into this side."

Howe says being a Collingwood supporter growing up and the role he had been earmarked to play was the determining factor in his decision to move to the Magpies.

"Having the chance to play for the team you barracked for as a kid was always a big drawcard," Howe said.

"What Collingwood delivered for me, that wing/half-forward role, was definitely appealing - that was the biggest drawcard."

Monday, 19 October 2015
Demons Jeremy Howe and Jimmy Toumpas and Magpies Paul Seedsman and Ben Kennedy got to their preferred new homes in a complicated four-club trade on Monday afternoon.

Howe was traded to Collingwood, Toumpas to Port Adelaide, Kennedy to Melbourne and Seedsman to Adelaide.

In the complex deal:
- Adelaide received Seedsman and gave up pick No.32;
- Collingwood received Howe and pick No.68 and gave up Seedsman and Kennedy;
- Melbourne received Kennedy and picks No.29 and 50 and gave up Howe and Toumpas;
- Port Adelaide received Toumpas and pick No.32 and gave up picks No.29, 50 and 68;

Thursday, 15 October 2015
Jeremy Howe has requested a trade to Collingwood.

The high-leaping Demon had been the subject of interest from Gold Coast, North Melbourne and Collingwood in recent weeks but the Pies confirmed their intent to trade for him on Wednesday evening.

Howe made his call on Thursday afternoon and the Magpies are expecting the two clubs to now work to facilitate a deal.

Friday, 9 October 2015
Jeremy Howe's manager Ben Niall says his client is likely to continue his AFL career at a club other than the Demons.

Niall also rubbished claims that Howe was seeking a deal worth $600,000 a season.

"We've never put a figure out there," Niall said.

"The figure that was put in the paper was ridiculous. He's not a mercenary person whatsoever.

"What we're looking for is, if he gets in the right environment and he can play in one role, which has been an issue for him, and master that role, because he's got enormous capacities, the money will take care of itself."

Thursday, 8 October 2015
Gold Coast say they are keen to bring Paul Seedsman and Jeremy Howe to the club in the upcoming NAB Trade Period.

"We've spoken to Paul," Lions football operations manager Marcus Ashcroft told SEN radio.

"We've been open with Collingwood about that. They're aware that we've spoken to Paul along with other clubs. We're optimistic.

"We've had a chat with Jeremy. Again, we've been open and transparent with Melbourne and again they're aware of that. We're interested. We think he'd be a valuable acquisition to our footy club."

Friday, 4 September 2015
Jeremy Howe still hasn't requested a new contract offer from the Demons, as speculation mounts he could be poached by a rival club.

"To my knowledge they (Howe and his manager Ben Niall) really haven't asked for an offer yet, so again I don't get too heavily involved in that," Demons coach Paul Roos said.

"I think Jeremy needs to finish off the season really well and then, probably like a lot of players now they wait, they weigh up other options, they see what else is available and then they come back to the club.

"So exactly where it's at, I'm not 100 per cent certain. But Jeremy and his management have been really keen to wait … and source out other opportunities."

Friday, 14 August 2015
Melbourne has reopened contract talks with Jeremy Howe who remains out of contract after deciding to put off talks until the end of the year.

"With Jeremy we've just started talking to his manager again about what he wants to do," Melbourne coach Paul Roos said.

"We're really keen to have him part of the footy club … he's started to settle in as a defensive player and is playing some really good footy."

Friday, 24 April 2015
Melbourne football manager Josh Mahoney says the club and Jeremy Howe's management are still a fair way off from coming to an agreement over a new contract.

"I'm not sure if we are going to put an offer to him soon," Mahoney said.

"Our last conversation we had with his manager was that he'd let us know when he wants an offer from us."

Mahoney said he and Howe were in regular contact.

"I have discussions with Jeremy regularly. We're very comfortable with what he's saying," Mahoney said.

"He's missed a long chunk of our pre-season with a hamstring and the last discussion we had in our office he said: 'Look I just want to get back and play well,' and so do we.

"He's been up and down so far this year, so we want him to get into some good form and then we'll start talking about it from then."

Thursday, 5 March 2015
Melbourne has opened contract negotiations with out-of-contract high-flyer Jeremy Howe, the player who shapes as the Dees' No.1 priority re-signing this year.

Howe's manager, Ben Niall of Scopo Management, said he met with Melbourne football manager Josh Mahoney late last week to open contract discussions.

"I've had an initial catch-up with Josh and just touched base with him," Niall said.

"I need to spend some time with Jeremy now, having a bit of a think about things and then we'll work out how we go ahead."

Wednesday, 28 January 2015
Jeremy Howe is set to miss the start of Melbourne's NAB Challenge campaign after scans revealed a strain in his right hamstring.

"Jeremy had an incident on the last day of our camp to the Sunshine Coast," Demons football manager Josh Mahoney said.

"Scans have revealed that he's got a strain in his hamstring.

"Given the position of the injury, within his hamstring, we'll treat it conservatively but we don't expect him to miss the start ofthe season."

Friday, 11 April 2014
Melbourne coach Paul Roos moves Jeremy Howe to the Demons' backlines due to a lack of form up forward.

"In the past when I played up forward, we usually had some bigger frames down there which obviously makes my role a lot easier," Howe said.

"At the start of the year, I was drawing one of the bigger guys and I struggled to deal with playing on them.

"I had to take a look at that and work out a strategy around that."

Thursday, 2 January 2014
Jeremy Howe is hoping to be a permanent fixture in Melbourne's forward line in 2014.

"I can play as a fourth medium-tall. I get the pick of the fourth or fifth defender, so I think it'll add a lot of variation," Howe said.

"That's where the majority of my footy will be played. I'm also looking forward to mastering that role up forward, which will hopefully give me a good year."

Wednesday, 9 January 2013
Melbourne Demons players, including Jeremy Howe, James Frawley and Lynden Dunn, involved in an ugly spat with fans at the Boxing Day Test at the MCG get the all clear by the club.

"They weren't evicted from the MCG, there was a discussion taken place with security with the suggestion stay in the spot if you want to guys, or move to another area or go," Demons coaching director Neil Craig said.

"And they decided to leave in the end, so there is a different connotation to leaving versus being evicted."

Thursday, 27 December 2012
Melbourne players Jeremy Howe, James Frawley and Lynden Dunn will reportedly have to explain themselves to the club in the new year after a boozy Boxing Day at the MCG.

Howe was asked to leave by the ground's security staff after a confrontation with fans during the opening day of the second Test between Australia and Sri Lanka.

Monday, 15 October 2012
Demon high-flyer Jeremy Howe has used Twitter to show off his new tattoo that has an overt spiritual theme consisting of the stars of the Southern Cross and angels.
Sunday, 9 September 2012
After making his name as a high-flyer in 2012, Jeremy Howe says he must improve his goalkicking to become a bigger threat up forward next year.

"I pride myself with my goalkicking and have had opportunities where I should be kicking goals and I just haven't," Howe said.

"Definitely my confidence just wasn't there so I have been working heavily on that and that is going to be one of my main focuses (for next year) because to miss an easy opportunity is deflating for myself and the group."

Sunday, 5 August 2012
Nathan Jones and Jeremy Howe have penned new three-year deals with Melbourne.

"Nathan Jones is going to be a central part of our midfield for many years to come," he said," Melbourne's general manager of list management Tim Harrington said.

"His professionalism towards his preparation means he has been a really consistent performer for the Melbourne Football Club. Nathan has missed only two games through injury since making his debut in 2006, which is further testament to his preparation and mindset.

"Jeremy is a highly talented player, who has captured the imagination of all Melbourne supporters.

"He has shown his versatility in his first two seasons of AFL, playing a variety of roles for the club. We expect he has plenty of improvement left in him."

Tuesday, 24 July 2012
Jeremy Howe says he regrets smearing blood on an opponent's shorts after pleading guilty to misconduct and receiving a reprimand at the tribunal hearing.
