Richmond forward Ben Lennon has been withdrawn from the Tigers' 25-man squad that will face Hawthorn at the MCG on Sunday.

Lennon was named as one of three possible inclusions for Sunday's match alongside midfield pair Dion Prestia and Jack Graham, although he has now been withdrawn from the running to come into the side.

Midfielder Jacob Townsend will replace him in the 25-man extended squad.

While Richmond didn't have any outs following last weekend's win against the Suns in Queensland, star forward Jack Riewoldt will miss his second consecutive game with an eye injury.

Riewoldt was hopeful he would be able to face the Hawks, but several doctors were not able to give him the all clear.

The Tigers will announce their final 22 at 5pm on Friday.
