Crucial playmakers Corey Enright and Scott Pendlebury have been named in Saturday night's blockbuster MCG clash between Collingwood and Geelong.

Cats ruckman Hamish McIntosh said that veteran defender Enright was recovering well from the rolled ankle he sustained in Sunday's victory over the Brisbane Lions.

"He did a bit today at training, so it’s all looking pretty positive," McIntosh said.

"We’ve still got a couple of days to go, so we’ll see how he pulls up from here but you’d have to think he’s a very good chance to play."

Collingwood captain Pendlebury did not appear to be hindered by a knock to his ankle as he trained alongside the rest of his team on Thursday.

"Pendles looked good so I’m sure he’ll be fine for Saturday night," midfielder Steele Sidebottom said.

Sidebottom was one of three Collingwood players who re-signed with the club this week, joining key defenders Nathan Brown and Ben Reid, who are both out injured.

Reid indicated he was steadily recovering from a calf injury suffered late in pre-season.

"It’s progressing well. I’ll probably start running next week and go from there, but it’s feeling really good," Reid said.

"There is no time on it really. Just get it 100 per cent right and play out the full season – that’s the aim. Get back, get strong, fit and ready to go.''

Brown made it clear that he would not be taking any major risks in his recuperation from a shoulder injury sustained in last Saturday night's win over Sydney.

"It’s been three or four days now and it’s come up pretty well," Brown said.

"We’ve had all the necessary scans and seen the right people and it’s still on the same time frame that we reported during the week, the four to five weeks.

"It’s important with the shoulders that you don’t come back too early. It might feel all right and ready to play but if it slips out again, the season is sort of done and dusted right there.

"I’m not going to put my hand up until I’m fully strong and ready to go."
