Essendon skipper Dyson Heppell has been sent for scans on Friday morning due to back tightness.
However, it is not expected to be anything serious, with Heppell expected to line-up against Port Adelaide tomorrow.
The 28-year old had just made a successful return from injury in Round 1, having been restricted to just three games last year.
It appears Dyson Heppell might have had an injury set back. An unexpected starter at scans this morning. Will know more soon for bombers fans. @7NewsMelbourne

A bit concerning to see @essendonfc skipper Dyson Heppell in for scans. But he’s told me nothing too serious, but of tightness in his back. Expects to be right for tomorrow’s clash with @PAFC @9NewsMelb

Heppell told reporters on Friday he expects to face Port Adelaide in the Adelaide Oval clash at 4.35 AEDT.
The Bombers will be looking to avenge last week's one-point loss to the Hawks, while Port will be hoping to win their second consecutive game after smashing North Melbourne by 52 points.
