Hille, Monfries to miss two weeks

Essendon are hopeful that David Hille and Angus Monfries will only miss two AFL matches with hamstring injuries.

The Bombers are awaiting the results of MRI scans after the pair were hurt during Sunday's nine-point loss to Sydney.

"We think David Hille has a grade-one hamstring injury, which is a good result in terms of hamstring injuries," Essendon football manager Paul Hamilton said on the club website.

"We still need to have that confirmed by MRI, and it's the same with Angus Monfries.

"We think they'll probably miss the next two games, then we've got the bye and then they'll be available the week after (round 14, against Adelaide)."

Veteran defender Dustin Fletcher will return from one week's suspension for the Saturday night game against Geelong.

Midfielder Brent Stanton should also be available after missing the Sydney game because of an ankle injury.

Young ruckman Tom Bellchambers has shown strong form in the VFL and he could take Hille's spot.

"The good news was that Tom Bellchambers was best on ground for our Bendigo side and that gives us a bit of confidence, and obviously he's put his hand up to play," Hamilton said.
