Geelong AFL premiership star Brad Ottens is nursing a rolled ankle after playing for the club's VFL side in a practice match against Coburg.

Ottens left the ground and did not return after contesting the opening bounce of the second term on Thursday afternoon at Skilled Stadium.

Cats assistant coach Ken Hinkley downplayed the injury, saying Ottens could have returned to the field.

"It's a slight ankle, nothing much," Hinkley said.

"All should be right. We had a look at him and he could have come back "

Fellow premiership players Gary Ablett, Matthew Scarlett and Joel Selwood also played in the match, which was held in hot conditions.
