Fremantle star recruit Harley Bennell won't debut for the Dockers in the foreseeable future with coach Ross Lyon confirming that the former Gold Coast midfielder has had a recurrence of his calf injury.

Bennell managed to play just the one WAFL game earlier in the season where he kicked four goals and had 25 plus disposals, however hasn't played a game since at any level.

Fremantle traded picks 16 and 35 to the Gold Coast Suns to get Bennell to the club during last season's trade period.

In better news for the Dockers, midfielder Stephen Hill is a good chance to face the Tigers this weekend after scans revealed that his quad injury was not as bad as first thought.
