Bailey Williams is set to become the third Western Bulldog to make his AFL debut this year.

The Bulldogs have promoted the 19-year-old at the expense of defender Marcus Adams, who underwent surgery on a fractured finger earlier this week.

Melbourne, who host the Bulldogs on Sunday, have also made one forced change.

Dean Kent (back) will miss the MCG match, allowing Christian Salem to return to the side that thumped Gold Coast by 73 points in round seven.

West Coast axed underperforming recruit Lewis Jetta, confirming on Friday that veteran Sam Butler will take his place for Sunday's home clash with St Kilda.

The Saints made two changes, recalling Dylan Roberton and Jack Sinclair in place of Sam Fisher (soreness) and Darren Minchington (omitted).

Carlton named an unchanged team for Sunday's game against Port Adelaide at Etihad Stadium, where the Blues are chasing a fourth straight win.

Port dropped Jimmy Toumpas, with midfielder Karl Amon to make the trip in his absence.
