Western Bulldogs captain Brad Johnson will finally return to the AFL in Sunday's match against West Coast.

Johnson has overcome persistent Achilles tendon problems and will play only his fourth senior game this year.

The Bulldogs' games record holder has been out of the side since round three.

Defender Ryan Hargrave is also back from an ankle injury, while Tom Williams has a hamstring injury and Brodie Moles was dropped.

The lowly Eagles promoted Andrew Strijk and Koby Stevens for their senior debuts and also recalled Adam Selwood.

Mark Nicoski's season is over because of coming shoulder surgery and West Coast also dropped Lewis Stevenson and Brett Jones.

Port Adelaide made five changes as they try to arrest their five-game losing streak at Etihad Stadium on Sunday against North Melbourne.

The Power axed Matthew Lobbe and Jay Nash after also losing Brett Ebert (ankle), Hamish Hartlett (quad) and Steven Salopek (shoulder).

They have recalled Josh Carr, Mitch Banner, Danny Meyer, Jay Schulz and Daniel Stewart.
