Melbourne forward Jeff Garlett could miss a second week with an ankle injury after failing to get through training on Friday.

Garlett was a late exclusion from last Sunday’s match against North Melbourne, with Billy Stretch replacing the former Blue in the side.

The 26-year-old was named in the Dees’ side to face Collingwood this Sunday, but is now in doubt with his movement clearly restricted as he was put through a fitness test at Gosch’s paddock this morning.

He left the track just half an hour into the session.
