Takes part in scratch match
FCarlton Blues
August 25, 2020
Cuningham (hamstring) logged action in a scratch match over the weekend, Marni Olsson-Young of the Blues' official site reports.
Cuningham hasn't taken part on the AFL side since July 31 versus Hawthorn, but his action in the scratch match could put him on a path to that versus Collingwood on Sunday. In any event, the hamstring is no longer an issue.
Out for Sunday's contest

Cunningham will miss Sunday's fixture against the Eagles as he is experiencing some calf tightness.
Cunningham did report some tightness in his hamstring after his Round 9 match and apparently the team's bye in the following week wasn't enough time for him to completely heal. The good news is that Andrew Russell, the team's Director of High Performance, did come out and say that Cunningham has a low-grade calf injury that he should most likely only miss one game, however, the absence should not surpass more than two.
Impressive in victory
FCarlton Blues
June 27, 2020
Cuningham produced 28 disposals (15 kicks, 13 handballs), eight marks, one tackle and two behinds in Saturday's 52-51 victory over Essendon.
Playing in just his 29th career game, Cuningham set career-highs in both disposals and marks. The Carlton midfield were fantastic in the victory, helping erase a 12 point deficit midway through the final quarter. He may have had a claim to best-on-ground honors has it not been for Sam Docherty and his 32 disposals. Carlton are certainly a team on the rise and while they are unlikely to challenge for the premiership this season, their progress is evident.
