The Adelaide Crows have rallied around 24 year old Cam Ellis-Yolmen following his second serious knee injury.

The First Nations midfielder was figuring strongly in the Crows plans for 2017 after an excellent pre season but is now looking at another full season out of the game after tearing his ACL on Friday night against Richmond.

Crows defender Andy Ottens  has himself suffered two such injuries and says while it’s  heartbreaking for Ellis-Yolmen, he’s confident that he has the support around him to make it back into the Crows lineup.
