Fremantle midfielder Brett Bewley is set to miss Monday night’s clash with Melbourne in Cairns as he battles a groin issue.
Bewley will aim to return for the Dockers’ final two games of the season against North Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs.
“He’s got a bit of groin soreness and lost a bit of power through there, so we’ll manage him through that,” Fremantle football manager Peter Bell said.
“At this stage he’d be a risk for this Monday’s game but we’re hoping that he’ll be alright for the following game on Saturday.”
Key defender Griffin Logue is aiming to play in the final round after being listed as two weeks away with his serious toe injury.
Logue, who has been sidelined since round five, is set to join main training next week.
“He’s going really well, and I’m pleased to announce that he’ll be joining the main football group as of Tuesday next week,” Bell said.
Ruckman Lloyd Meek could be available for selection in round 17 as he recovers from a calf injury.
However small forward Sam Switkowski will not make it back this season after suffering a hamstring injury.
“Unfortunately, he had a training session with the non-AFL selected players on the Gold Coast and sustained a grade one hamstring injury to his right leg, which is unfortunate for Sam,” Bell said.
“It’s a standard 21-day hamstring, which means he won’t be available for the remainder of the regular season fixture.”
Fremantle’s remaining fixtures are against Melbourne, North Melbourne and the Bulldogs.
