Carlton coach Michael Voss says new recruit Adam Cerra has been given the all-clear to face Hawthorn as the Blues look to continue their winning start to the season.
Carlton are priced at 27/50 to beat the Hawks at the MCG on Sunday and are boosted by the news Cerra, who arrived from Fremantle, is available.
Cerra along with Voss and Jack Martin were forced to miss last weekend’s win over the Western Bulldogs after being told to stay away from the rest of the camp for seven days.
After sticking to the AFL protocols all three are now back in the camp and are preparing for a big game against the Hawks.
"We think he'll be fine, we've already got the clearance and we think he'll be fine," Voss said of Cerra. "He's been largely unaffected so we think he'll be ready to go."
Carlton are looking to achieve a 3-0 start for the first time since 2012 and Voss will have one or two selection dilemmas heading into the game.
Competition for places is hot, particularly in the midfield, and Voss admits the side will chop and change throughout the campaign.
"It's fine to speak about that next man-up approach but then to go out there and do that has been impressive," Voss added.
"The guys who have come in have warranted that selection, they've been in very good form and deserved their positions.
"We're going to have changes all throughout the year, we're not going to be sitting here with a stock 23 every week so we have to take a squad mentality."
