Dockers confirm another injury setback for Bennell


Fremantle GM of Football Peter Bell has confirmed that Harley Bennell has suffered yet another injury setback.

The luckless Docker went for an MRI scan after reporting calf soreness following a training session on Tuesday.

Bennell, 26, was nearing a return to football after playing just two games for the Dockers since arriving from Gold Coast at the end of 2015.

"Unfortunately, the MRI confirmed that Harley has re-injured his right calf," Bell told

"Harley will be further assessed in the coming days to determine a return to playing date."

The former No.2 pick in the 2010 AFL Draft has been plagued by soft tissue problems throughout his career.
