Western Bulldogs midfielder Tom Liberatore has undergone ankle surgery but the AFL club is optimistic his season is not over.

Liberatore hurt his ankle during the Bulldogs' 25-point loss to Geelong on Friday night, with scans revealing ligament damage.

Western Bulldogs football manager Graham Lowe says Liberatore and Jack Macrae, who tweaked his hamstring in round 19, could return before the end of the season.
