Geelong utility Jackson Thurlow has been released from hospital and will spend the Christmas break recuperating in his home state of Tasmania as he continues his recovery from a lacerated kidney.
Thurlow was discharged from hospital in Geelong on Friday morning and is set to travel home to spend the two-week break with his family in Launceston.

A pre-season accident has left Geelong defender Jackson Thurlow hospitalised with a lacerated kidney.
Thurlow's injury is not as serious as a similar one suffered by teammate Tom Lonergan eight years ago, with club officials saying the 20-year-old Thurlow had avoided surgery.
The Cats are hopeful he will be out of hospital later this week.
But he appears unlikely to resume training until next month.
The injury apparently happened during competitive work.
Thurlow has played 10 senior games since his debut last season.
