Hulking defender Marcus Adams returned to full training on Saturday and could play this weekend if he gets through the week, Dogs medical service manager Chris Bell confirmed on Monday.  

The luckless 24-year-old’s ankle was caught in a tackle during a match simulation in March, before scans confirmed a high grade syndesmosis injury, sidelining him for three months.

Adam’s journey back is now almost complete, with Bell saying almost all the hurdles have been cleared.

“Marcus has progressed really well following his ankle surgery earlier in the year, he said. 

He's ticked our final stage measures in rehab.  He's back in full training this week and if he gets through training like we expect, he will play this weekend.”

The promising West Australian has played 21 games in three seasons after being taken with the 35th pick in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft due to a series of foot and finger injuries.

Adams has averaged 16 possessions, six marks, three tackles and three rebound 50s per game as a key defender, and in May 2017 signed a three-year contract extension, keeping him at the Club until at least the end of the 2020 season.
