Western Bulldogs defender Marcus Adams will miss this Sunday’s clash with Melbourne at the MCG due to a finger injury.

Adams had surgery on a fractured finger today, but is not expected to miss a lengthy period of time.

“Marcus has sustained a minor fracture to one of his fingers which requires surgical intervention, so he’s having that today,” Bulldogs Football Manager Graham Lowe said.

“Following that surgery we’ll provide an update in terms of time lines, but we certainly don’t see him having a significant amount of time out of the game.”

Meanwhile, Koby Stevens is a chance to return after missing last weekend’s match with a side strain.
