Richmond midfielder Nathan Foley is in doubt for the start of the AFL season because of ongoing ankle problems.

Foley had minor surgery on Wednesday to relieve soreness in the same ankle which prematurely ended his 2009 season, the Tigers said in a statement.

"Nathan had been progressing well with his rehabilitation program, but has experienced some soreness in the last week," Richmond Elite Performance Manager Matthew Hornsby said.

"The medical staff decided the best course of action was for him to have minor surgery.

"The surgery will prevent him from running for the next couple of weeks, and we will continue to take a cautious approach with his recovery."

Richmond open the AFL season on March 25 at the MCG when the Tigers host Carlton.

Richmond's pre-season cup first-round clash is against Hawthorn at Aurora Stadium on February 13.
