Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe has on Monday undergone scans for an ongoing foot injury he has battled in the early rounds of the 2021 season.

Nine News Perth first reported that the dual Brownlow medallist required a Monday medical for the chronic issue in his left foot.

However, the star midfielder is confident that he will be available for selection and that the injury will not sideline him for the interim.

The 29-year old spent Monday morning in Fremantle's rehab group before having scans later in the day.

"Just a little scan on a bit of a grumpy foot that's been around for a few weeks, nothing major," Fye told Nine News Perth.

"I'll train this week and be right to play."

It is understood that specialist advice will provide greater insight into the extent of the injury and could even dictate his immediate playing future.

The niggle mattered not on the weekend, with Fyfe coming off a best-on-ground performance in Saturday's two-point win over the Swans - polling a perfect 20 votes in our Round 10 MVP votes.

Fyfe racked up 27 disposals, including a game-high 19 contested possessions, and booted the match-winning goal.

It saw Fremantle improve to 5-5 on the season, currently sitting 10th on the ladder and just percentage outside the top eight.

Fyfe has played all nine games for the Dockers in 2021, averaging 26.7 disposals and 6.7 clearances.

The onballer has been criticised for his wayward kicking in front of goal this season, converting just three goals with 16 behinds.

Fyfe has played 196 AFL games for the Dockers since making his debut in 2010.
