Young Eagle Campbell Chesser is set for more time on the sidelines after a recent setback at training, while teammate Liam Duggan is the latest injury watch at West Coast.

The Perth powerhouse are already dealing with a number of key names in their casualty ward as Liam Ryan (hamstring), Tim Kelly (hamstring) and Dom Sheed (foot) deal with separate ailments.

Young trio Coby Burgiel (hamstring), Archer Reid (knee) and Elijah Hewett (foot) are also requiring time away from the track.

Chesser, a first-round selection from the 2021 National Draft, has since joined them with a reported ankle issue said to have sidelined the 20-year-old.

According to The West Australian's Mitchell Woodcock, Chesser sustained the setback last week and did not take part in the Eagles' session on Monday along with Hewett and Sheed.

It is understood that the injury is on the minor end for the emerging utility, who had his first season in the AFL derailed due to an ankle injury.

Further setbacks would limit Chesser to 14 games last year as injuries swept through the club.

Recently appointed co-captain Liam Duggan could join the Eagles' list of wounded players, with Woodcock revealing the West Coast defender was assisted off the training track on Monday due to a suspected knee issue.

Duggan was one of just seven Eagles players to appear in at least 22 games last year, with his strong 2023 campaign followed by an appointment as shared skipper alongside key forward Oscar Allen.

The Eagles' first pre-season outing is scheduled for Saturday, February 24 at Mineral Resources Park against Fremantle, with their following encounter coming via a trip to South Australia to face the Crows at Hisense Stadium in early March.

West Coast's home and away campaign will commence with a trip back to Adelaide, where they'll meet Port Adelaide on Sunday, March 17 as part of the Round 1 draw.
