93.9 BayFM Geelong
The forward's been battling a stress fracture in his foot and hasn't played in the AFL this year.
The Cats say he's had several full training sessions, and are hoping to play him in the VFL shortly.
Meantime, coach Chris Scott says Trent West only has a minor knee problem, denying reports he could be out for a month.
The Cats are looking to play Orren Stephenson and Josh Walker against Eagles Dean Cox and Nic Naitanui on Friday night in Perth.
