Senior players Mitch Wallis, Alex Keath and Tim English all remain a chance to play against Port Adelaide on Friday night at Adelaide Oval.
Wallis was substituted in the fourth quarter of the 32-point victory over the Bombers and scans have revealed an injury to his foot.
“Mitch has damaged a joint in his foot,” Head of Sports Medicine, Chris Bell said.
“We will work through a process of how to best manage Mitch over the next few days before confirming if he is available to play.”
Both English and Keath have been recovering from hamstring injuries sustained over the last month and will be given every chance to prove their fitness ahead of the Friday night blockbuster.
“Tim and Alex are progressing well from their hamstring injuries,” Bell said.
“Both completed a game-like rehab session over the weekend.”
“They still have to tick some boxes this week before we confirm if they play this weekend against Port or next weekend against the Pies.”
In positive news for the Bulldogs, first-round draftee Sam Darcy is nearing a return to the field for the red, white and blue.
“Sam Darcy has shown great maturity and been incredibly diligent in the recovery from his foot bone stress injury,” Bell said.
“I’m happy to say that has now returned to full training.”
“We will build some continuity this week – but it won’t be long before we see Sam pull on the Bulldogs jumper.”
Anthony Scott will be available for selection after exiting AFL health and safety protocols.
