First year Western Bulldogs defender Marcus Adams will miss this weekend's game against the Demons after suffering a fractured finger in the team's 15 point win over the Crows on Saturday night.
The 23 year old will have surgery tomorrow, with the Western Bulldogs expecting the impressive defender to miss just the one week.
“Marcus has sustained a minor fracture to one of his fingers which requires surgical intervention, so he’s having that today (Tuesday),” he said.
“Following that surgery we’ll provide an update in terms of time lines, but we certainly don’t see him having a significant amount of time out of the game.”
The Doggies could welcome back midfielder Koby Stevens who missed this weekend's game against the Crows with an abdominal strain, however forward Tom Boyd who has missed the last two weeks with a shoulder injury, is no certainty to return as he recovers from a shoulder
“Tom Boyd is making further progress in terms of strengthening around the shoulder, so there’s still some landmarks that he needs to achieve from that perspective.
“But he’s making great progress and he’ll continue to train this week and we’ll make decisions over his timelines over the coming days.”
