Greater Western Sydney recruit Jesse Hogan is the latest Giant facing an injury-riddled pre-season after suffering a quad injury at training.

According to AFL.com.au’s Riley Beveridge, Hogan will be sidelined for the next 3-4 weeks and will be in a race against the clock for selection against the Saints on Sunday, March 21.

The news follows setbacks for fellow recruit Braydon Preuss and defender Adam Kennedy, who have both undergone shoulder surgery and will miss a majority of the season.

Defender Phil Davis (knee), midfielder Lachie Whitfield (liver) and forward Bobby Hill (concussion) are also under injury clouds.

Hogan moved to the Harbour City after a short stint with Fremantle, where he was traded to the Giants in exchange for pick 58 at the end of last season.

The 26-year-old has faced a lengthy history of injuries during his time with both the Dockers and Melbourne, playing 90 matches since making his debut in 2015.
