Melbourne forward Jeff Garlett is in doubt for this week’s clash with Carlton due to a skin infection on his lower right leg.
Garlett, who came down with the infection on Sunday night, arrived at the club on Monday on crutches, with both his foot and ankle heavily bandaged.

The 27-year-old booted two goals in the Dees’ win over Port Adelaide on Saturday.
The club is currently unsure of the severity of the infection or if he will miss any matches.
