Adelaide and Melbourne are among the latest clubs dealing with pre-season injury concerns a month out from the star of the pre-season fixture.

Third-year Crow Jake Soligo was assisted off the field at training with a suspected right ankle issue after landing awkwardly in a marking contest.

Footage captured by 9 News' Emma Henderson on Wednesday morning showed Soligo in pain and unable to put weight on his foot after suffering the injury.

The ailment is the latest concern for the Crows, who were dealt a fresh blow this week after defender Wayne Milera suffered a setback with a hamstring concern.

It's expected that Milera will be sidelined for up to three weeks after working through an already interrupted pre-season.

Young Crows draftee Dan Curtn is expected to rejoin main training this week following a recent knee issue.

Adelaide have pre-season hitouts against Port Adelaide and West Coast prior to their Round 1 meeting with Gold Coast on Saturday, March 16.

Meanwhile, Demons vice-captain Jack Viney limped off Gosch's Paddock on Wednesday morning with a corkie that curtailed his session.

9 News' Joshua Dawe confirmed Viney is dealing with a corkie after a collision at training, adding to the Demons' list of injury concerns.

Key defender Steven May is dealing with soreness in what looms as a suspected groin issue, with the premiership backman limited to running laps.

Melbourne are already without Ben Brown (knee) and Tom Fullarton (hamstring) for the start of the season due to recent pre-season setbacks.

The Demons were buoyed by the return of star Clayton Oliver on Wednesday, with the Melbourne midfielder returning to training for the first time in over a month after spending time away from the club for personal reasons.

Melbourne will face Carlton in late February before making the trip to Sydney to open the new season against the Swans at the MCG on Thursday, March 7.
