The Bombers have made a late change ahead of their clash with Collingwood at the MCG on Sunday afternoon.
Mercurial forward Orazio Fantasia has been taken out of the side after leaving the training track early on Saturday with groin soreness.
He has been replaced in Essendon’s 22 by wingman Jake Long, who has not played senior footy since 2016.
Collingwood will go in as named.
