Brisbane defender Jack Payne remains in the mix to face Collingwood on Saturday after getting through Tuesday's session unscathed as he looks to overcome a niggling ankle issue.

Payne was unable to face Carlton in Saturday's preliminary final win due to the ailment and is no certainty to return this week for the Lions' first grand final appearance in 19 years.

The 23-year-old was able to partake in key drills and was also put to the test through additional measures at the session.

His replacement, Darcy Gardiner, was a strong performer against the Blues and has made Payne no certainty of coming into Chris Fagan's plans even if he is cleared to play.

The club revealed on Tuesday afternoon that Payne has ticked the latest box in his rehabilitation, with all eyes now turning to the Lions' main session on Thursday.

"Brisbane Lions defender Jack Payne has shown further positives signs in overcoming an ankle complaint to be available for selection ahead of Saturday's AFL Grand Final against Collingwood," a club statement read.

"Payne completed Tuesday's open training session at Brighton Homes Arena, where he was also put through extra exercises to test his ankle.

"The 23-year-old will again train on Thursday before a final decision is made with the Lions Grand Final team being announced Thursday evening."

The Lions are unlikely to make any potential further changes to the side that defeated Carlton by 16 points at the Gabba last weekend.

Selection for the 2023 AFL Grand Final will be made on Thursday evening at 6:20pm
