Fremantle are hopeful Blake Acres has avoided a serious hamstring injury after being forced off the field against Hawthorn on Saturday afternoon.
The Dockers continue to fly this season and are priced at 6/1 to win the premiership after beating the Hawks by 13 points at Optus Stadium.
There were big fears for Acres though as he was forced to leave the field with what looked to be a serious hamstring issue.
Visions of Acres visibly upset on the bench added to the concern. The player has been dogged by injuries in the past and there were fears he could be set for another spell on the sidelines.
Dockers coach Justin Longmuir says they are yet to discover the full extent of the damage but suggested it is not as bad as first feared.
"He doesn't think it is overly serious," Longmuir told reporters. "He's disappointed as all players are when they get injured. He feels like it is not a big one."
Freo were boosted by the return of skipper Nat Fyfe who appears to have come through his first AFL game of the season without any issues.
Andrew Brayshaw was the star of the show with 37 disposals but all eye were on Fyfe making his return following a lengthy absence.
"I thought he was a little bit rusty, but I expected that," Longmuir told reporters."A good one to get under the belt and clearly he'll get better. Everyone enjoyed seeing him back out there, I did."
