As revealed by AFL.com.au'sMitch Cleary, Daniel could be rubbed out of the must-win clash after suffering the niggle late in his side's win over Essendon last week.
The complaint could lead to Beveridge making a late switch to his magnets board for the second straight week, with the premiership coach having to replace defender Zaine Cordy due to illness ahead of the Dogs' elimination final in Launceston.
Cordy, who was replaced by Ryan Gardner in the side, was not selected for a return ahead of this week's game at the Gabba.
The 24-year-old joins vice-captain Mitch Wallis, utility Anthony Scott and last week's medical sub Jason Johannisen as an emergency for Saturday's clash with Brisbane after Beveridge named an unchanged lineup from last week.
However, the Bulldogs coach did flag the club was leaning toward a potential forced change during his press conference on Thursday.
"As far as any other changes, we may be forced into one which will come out this afternoon but other than that it'll be a pretty stable team," he said.
