Alex Browne will miss the rest of the 2014 season after scans confirmed he has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

"Alex was very unlucky, his leg got caught under his body on the field and as a result he has torn his cruciate and medial ligament. Unfortunately he does need a full, traditional reconstruction," Bombers doctor Bruce Reid said.

"He can take the game on, use the ball, run with it and he has some exciting attributes so we think with another big pre-season in 2013 should be a big one for him," Essendon football operations manager Paul Hamilton said of Browne.

"He is playing senior football in his second year and I think all our supporters have seen first hand some of his capabilities and strengths."

"We have given him another year for him to show us what he can deliver," Hamilton also said about Steinberg.

"We believe he has a real lot of upside and we are keen to get a full pre-season into him and activate a lot of the potential we believe he has."

"I'm back doing a lot of boxing and swimming, and I've started running again now. It's progressing pretty well."
