Western Bulldogs key forward Barry Hall must wait another week to return to the AFL.

While the Bulldogs regained forward Shaun Higgins and defenders Tom Williams and Easton Wood for Sunday's match against West Coast in Perth, Hall did not make the final team.

Injury has kept Hall out of the Bulldogs' lineup since round five.

Dylan Addison withdrew from the squad after injuring his ankle at training on Wednesday.

The Dogs also lost Brownlow Medallist Adam Cooney to a persistent knee injury and dropped Josh Hill.

West Coast regained star midfielders Daniel Kerr and Andrew Embley, who pulled out of the team last Sunday only a few minutes before the local derby win over Fremantle.

They came in for Brad Sheppard and Andrew Gaff.

Collingwood captain Nick Maxwell and utility Dayne Beams are back for Sunday's Etihad Stadium match against Adelaide, who are unchanged.

Magpies defender Alan Toovey is out of action after injuring his chest last Friday night in a high-speed collision with Geelong's Tom Hawkins, while Brad Dick was dropped.

Hawthorn ruckman Max Bailey will play his first senior game since round 22 in 2009 after recovering from his third knee reconstruction.

He was among three inclusions for Sunday's SCG match against Sydney.

The Hawks also regained Cyril Rioli and Ryan Schoenmakers.

Bailey will come in for injured ruckman David Hale, while defender Stephen Gilham will miss the rest of the season with a knee reconstruction and Isaac Smith is out because of soreness.

Swans defender Nick Malceski will come back from his second LARS knee surgery, with Nathan Gordon making way for him.

Also on Friday, Richmond forward Brad Miller pulled out of the Dreamtime At The 'G match against Essendon because of illness and Jayden Post took his place.
