Fremantle Dockers coach Justin Longmire hasn’t ruled out Michael Walters but says a WAFL assignment is likely

Fremantle coach Justin Longmire says the Dockers will take a long-term approach with Michael Walters’ Achilles injury, with a game against Bell in a pre-season clash looming this weekend.

Walters, 32, has missed the last few weeks of training due to an injury, leaving him a doubt to face former mentor Ross Lyon and St. Kilda at Marvel Arena on Sunday.

Michael Frederick (quadruple) is fit and ready to play, meaning the Dockers don’t have to rush an all-Aussie back too early and risk a re-aggravation of the injury.

Longmuir will not rule Walters out of playing against the Saints, with a decision to be made later this week if he will play in the AFL or for the Thunder against Subiaco in Mandurah on Saturday.
