Injury-plagued Kangaroo Ed Vickers-Willis has suffered a setback in his return from a serious knee injury, dislocating his toe at training on Tuesday.

As reported by AFL.com.au’s Marc McGowan, the defender hobbled off the track after a marking contest and was sent for scans.

The 24-year old was completing a full training session, having not played since Round 1 against Fremantle last year when he ruptured his ACL.

Vickers-Willis had an arthroscopy to repair some issues in his injured knee in November.

Out-of-contract at the end of the season, the backman has played 15 games after getting drafted by North Melbourne with pick 36 the 2014 AFL draft.
