Bulldog Gilbee hurt at training

Western Bulldogs defender Lindsay Gilbee is in doubt for Sunday's clash with North Melbourne after injuring his ankle at training.

Gilbee limped off the Western Oval to have the injury assessed but will be named in the side, according to coach Rodney Eade.

Eade said Gilbee, who was caught in a tackle, had hurt his ankle in the game against Port Adelaide in Darwin two weeks ago.

He said the creative backman was training for the first time since suffering ligament damage.

"He got caught in a bit of a tackle. He hurt it again in Darwin, so it has been going on for a few weeks," Eade said.

"There was some doubt on him anyway. It was the first day that he's trained.

"He didn't train at all last week, so I suppose there is some doubt now.

"I'll get a further update from the doctor later on, but the doctor did come out and say he's still hopeful he'll be able to play but it's obviously put him in some doubt.

"I'll wait to get an update but we're still hopeful he'll play.

"We'll certainly give him every chance and certainly name him, but we don't know at this stage."

According to Eade, Dylan Addison, Tim Callan and Sam Reid could come in to replace Gilbee if needed.
