Veteran defender Easton Wood is expected to miss at least the next month of football after sustaining a hamstring injury on Saturday night.

Wood was subbed out of the game in the first quarter, as the Western Bulldogs notched their eighth win for the season.

“In the first quarter of the game on the weekend whilst accelerating into a contest, Easton suffered a hamstring strain,” head of sports medicine, Chris Bell, said.

“With clinical assessment today and an MRI, we can confirm that is a moderate grade injury.

“We expect Easton to miss the next 4-6 weeks of footy.”

Ryan Gardner (shoulder) will be available to return from injury this week, with Lachie Hunter (hand), Tim English and Jamarra Ugle-Hagan (both concussion) all tests.

“Although we tried hard to get Lachie up to play (against Port Adelaide), he was hampered by some swelling,” Bell said.

“We’ll continue to work with Lachie this week, to determine his availability towards the back-end of the week.

“Tim fully trained without contact last week and still wasn’t quite 100 per cent.

“We’ll continue to monitor Tim this week, and once he’s fully recovered we’ll return him to availability.”
