Viney will play for Carey Grammar in the APS competition on Saturday.
He made a controversial VFL debut with Casey several weeks ago when he broke his jaw after a heavy hit from Geelong’s David Wojcinski. The result ended with Wojcinski being handed his first ever suspension.
Melbourne football manager Josh Mahoney confirmed that Viney was ready to go.
“Jack’s fully recovered from his broken jaw and is ready to play. It is his first game back after an extended layoff and we will continue to work through his football program as part of his ongoing development,” Mahoney told the AFL website.
Viney is expected to play another four or five games in the second half of the VFL season in order to ready him for AFL footy next season. He is expected to be taken in the first round of this year’s AFL draft by the Demons as a father-son selection.
