Hayden suffers punctured lung

Fremantle defender Roger Hayden is set to miss the next 3-5 weeks of football after suffering a collapsed lung.

Hayden sustained the injury during the club's three-point loss to the Bulldogs and was admitted to hospital on Sunday night.

The 27-year-old is expected to be released from hospital on Tuesday and will resume light training duties next week.

Hayden has been a shining light in an otherwise miserable season for the Dockers, whose finals hopes have all but vanished following five straight losses.

Defender Antoni Grover is set to return for Saturday's clash with Carlton at Telstra Dome after missing the past two games through injury, but youngster Marcus Drum is in serious doubt after injuring his hamstring against the Dogs.

Forward Chris Tarrant, who returned to form with four goals against the Dogs, was cleared by the AFL match review panel of any wrongdoing for his collision with Daniel Cross.
