Charlie Curnow has been ruled out
for the rest of the 2019 season after experiencing pain during his recovery from a knee injury.
"Since last week, we've taken him off straight line and done a little bit of agility work with him and he's had increased pain and awareness in his knee," Blues director of high performance Andrew Russell said.
"This is to do with the bone bruising in his knee, which he had at the same time as he had his medial ligament injury."

Charlie Curnow will
be sidelined for the next 3-4 weeks after he jarred the medial ligament in his right knee during Carlton's stirring victory over Fremantle at Optus Stadium.
The latest setback has come at a poor time for Curnow, who was just starting to hit form (14 goals in the four games before last weekend) after a slow start to the year.
"It hasn't been the easiest year, just a few injuries. They haven't been serious, they've just been annoying me a little bit," he said.
"I've found consistency before this week, so to have another setback isn't the greatest, but it's part of the game and it's probably the best job in the world, so I'm lucky."

"We have a tight relationship, we're pretty competitive with each other.
"We also communicate quite aggressively, which I think sets a good example for the rest of the team."

Carlton midfielder Ed Curnow is found guilty of intentional umpire contact by the AFL Appeal Board and hit with a one-match suspension, but his younger brother Charlie Curnow has been cleared of the same charge.
Both Curnows were cleared of intentional umpire contact by the Tribunal on Tuesday night and fined $1000 after pleading guilty to the lesser charge of careless contact, decisions which prompted an appeal by AFL football operations manager Steve Hocking.
"We had a very reasonable jury on Tuesday that found (Charlie) guilty of careless contact with the umpire and yet (it's) pretty frustrating that same jury has been found to be unreasonable when they found Ed guilty of that same charge," Carlton football manager Andrew McKay said.
"So to come here is a little bit confusing. We'll cop it on the chin and move on."

The AFL will appeal downgraded umpire contact findings against Carlton brothers Ed Curnow and Charlie Curnow, describing the sanctions imposed as "manifestly inadequate".
Magpies coach Collingwood coach says Geelong have reason to question the AFL Tribunal's decision to clear Carlton players Ed Curnow and Charlie Curnow of their separate intentional umpire contact charges, after Tom Hawkins was dealt a one-game suspension for similar contact.
"If I was Geelong I'd be bleeding Ö absolutely bleeding," he told SEN radio.
"Because Hawkins handled himself so well, I thought the club handled it well. You'd be scratching your head wondering, 'Why be so gracious when it's not actually supported or followed through?'"
Patrick Dangerfield slams the Tribunal's decision to downgrade Carlton players Ed Curnow and Charlie Curnow's intentional umpire contact charges a week after Tom Hawkins was slapped with a one-game ban.
"I think it was farcical, to be honest," Dangerfield told SEN radio.
"It's a couple of years running now that Tom has worn the brunt of the MRP. Then the following weeks the same thing has happened and it hasn't been consistent.
"I think we're all scratching our heads as to where is the consistency because I'm a little confused."

Charlie Curnow earns the round 16 NAB AFL Rising Star nomination after tallying 19 disposals, 10 marks and 2 goals against Melbourne.
"I started this season off pretty slow, but 'Bolts' (coach Brendon Bolton) and the coaching staff were really good," Curnow said.
"They told me to go off and work on areas of my game and recently I've started to benefit from that. Having Levi Casboult and Matthew Wright in the forward line helping me makes it a lot easier, because they're both playing really good football."

Charlie Curnow's season could be over with a medial ligament injury expected to sideline him for four to six weeks.

"Scans have revealed it is a medial ligament injury," Carlton football manager Andrew McKay said.
"We're still not completely sure on what timeframe he'll be out for. But it will be somewhere between four and six weeks, which means he's a chance to come back just before the end of the season but there's also a chance that he won't be back."

Carlton selects Charlie Curnow with pick No.12 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.
"He's a powerful forward, who can possibly go through the midfield," Carlton list manager Stephen Silvagni said.
"He didn't play a lot of footy this year and if you look at him as a forward he's a bit different to the other boys we brought in Ė he's different to Harry (McKay) and he's different to Jack in some ways as well. So there's a good mix."
Charlie Curnow says he's ashamed at being arrested by police just days before being selected in the NAB AFL Draft.
"I made a terrible mistake and it's something I deeply regret and it's something that I am going to have to deal with," Curnow said.
"It's my own fault and something I'm disappointed in myself with.
"I have let a lot of people down and I'm just lucky enough that Carlton had the faith to pick me up."
