Carlton have lost a third player to injury for Sunday's key AFL clash against West Coast at Etihad Stadium.

Ed Curnow has a quad muscle injury and he will join Nick Duigan (calf) and Shaun Hampson (knee) as forced omissions.

Carlton have recalled Robbie Warnock and Dennis Armfield and promoted rookie-listed defender Rhys O'Keeffe for his AFL debut.

The Eagles made one change, dropping Patrick McGinnity for Eric Mackenzie.

The Blues are third and will further consolidate their top-four berth if they can beat the fifth-placed Eagles.

Geelong made four forced changes for Sunday's home game against Adelaide, but named Jimmy Bartel.

He remains in some doubt because of a concussion during last Saturday night's win over St Kilda.

The Cats have already lost Josh Hunt and Mathew Stokes to suspension, while Nathan Vardy has soreness and Darren Milburn has a calf injury.

They promoted Mitch Brown for his AFL debut and also brought in Tom Hawkins, Tom Gillies and Allen Christensen.

Adelaide's 28-year-old rookie Ian Callinan will also make his AFL debut as Brent Reilly and Richard Tambling were recalled.

Brad Symes has a knee injury and Chris Schmidt and Jack Gunston were dropped.

Port Adelaide left out Daniel Motlop and Michael Pettigrew for Sunday's home game against North Melbourne, with David Rodan and Andrew Moore returning to the team.

Scott McMahon is out of the Kangaroos team because his wife is expecting and Cameron Richardson will replace him.
