Melbourne midfielder Tom Scully is out of Sunday's AFL clash with Hawthorn because of a knee injury.

Scully was substituted during last Saturday night's win over Port Adelaide in Darwin and failed to train fully this week.

The Greater Western Sydney recruiting target will be joined on the sidelines by Cale Morton, who has been dropped.

Ninth-placed Melbourne recalled Matthew Bate and Lynden Dunn for the MCG clash with the third-placed Hawks.

Hawthorn regained midfielders Brad Sewell and Jordan Lewis and brilliant small forward Cyril Rioli.

Clinton Young and Riley Milne were omitted and Matt Suckling has a back injury.

Geelong regain four players including champion fullback Matthew Scarlett and midfielder David Wojcinski for Sunday's game against Richmond at Etihad Stadium.

Josh Cowan and Mitch Duncan also return, while ruckman Brad Ottens has been rested despite being available following a one-week suspension.

The second-placed Cats have dropped Taylor Hunt, Steven Motlop and Simon Hogan while skipper Cameron Ling (soreness) has been rested.

Richmond recalled Shane Tuck, Mitch Morton and Angus Graham, who replaces Andrew Browne in the ruck.

The 13th-placed Tigers also left out Shaun Grigg (eye) and Brad Helbig (leg).

Fremantle named Ryan Crowley and Nick Suban to replace injured duo Roger Hayden (leg) and Rhys Palmer (soreness) for Sunday's derby against West Coast.

The Eagles regain Patrick McGinnity for Koby Stevens.
