Injury update: Naismith ruled out, Kennedy in doubt

Coach John Longmire confirmed today, ahead of Thursday's main training session, that ruck man Sam Naismith has been ruled out of Saturday's clash against Fremantle.

Naismith continues to recover from a hip injury he suffered against Hawthorn in round 19, and sat out last Friday nights win against Geelong.

Meanwhile, captain Josh Kennedy will be put through his paces today during the main session in his bid to prove his fitness.

It's still too early to tell if he'll be fit enough to play and if he's recovered from the slight hamstring strain he suffered against Hawthorn two weeks ago.

Josh Kennedy Hamstring Test
Sam Naismith Hip 1 Week
Colin O'Roirdan Ankle Test
Robbie Fox Ankle 2 Weeks
