After being omitted from the senior side following the Demons' Round 20 loss to GWS, Jack Watts' hopes of playing in the club's first finals campaign since 2006 has taken yet another hit, with the former No.1 draft pick reported in the VFL on Saturday.

Watts played his second game in the VFL in as many weeks after a disappointing run of games in the AFL following a return from a hamstring injury.

The 26-year-old was reported on Saturday afternoon for a bump on Nicholas Sing, while he was in the air, while playing for Casey against Williamstown at Casey Fields

He was officially reported by the officiating umpire for charging, with the umpire stating during the game that he had eyes solely for the player and made no attempt to play the ball.

Watts had 20 disposals and kicked one goal as Casey defeated Williamstown 11.12 (78) to 7.12 (54) to move to third on the ladder.
