Carlton key position player Setanta O'hAilpin is finally back in the AFL after his infamous pre-season brain explosion.

The league suspended the Irishman for four matches after he punched and kicked team-mate Cameron Cloke during a February intraclub game.

The nasty incident was caught on video and the club also suspended O'hAilpin.

But he was back with the team within a fortnight.

O'hAilpin was among four additions to Carlton's team for the Sunday match against the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.

As expected, they recalled onballers Andrew Carrazzo and Heath Scotland and also welcomed back key defender Michael Jamison.

Shaun Grigg (ankle) and Sam Jacobs (thigh) are injured and the Blues dropped Richard Hadley and Mitch Robinson.

Bulldogs key forward Robert Murphy is back for his first senior game of the season and Jarrad Grant will make his AFL debut.

Jason Akermanis is suspended and the Bulldogs dropped Stephen Tiller.

Geelong recalled Darren Milburn and David Johnson for their home match against Brisbane, while Cameron Ling is out with an Achilles injury and Tom Lonergan was omitted.

The Lions made three changes, bringing in Lachlan Henderson, James Polkinghorne and Tom Collier for Jamie Charman (knee), Tim Notting and Cheynee Stiller.

Melbourne captain James McDonald is back for Sunday's twilight match against Adelaide at the MCG, replacing Brad Green (jaw).

And Demons forward Russell Robertson could come in for his first senior match since tearing his Achilles tendon in round 11 last year.

He was added to the Demons' emergencies list on Friday evening.

The Crows brought in Myke Cook, Scott Stevens and Jonathon Griffin for Ivan Maric, Robert Shirley and Brad Symes.
