West Coast has revealed the promising progress of a host of injured Eagles, including key-position trio Jeremy McGovern, Tom Barrass, and Shannon Hurn, defender Liam Duggan, and first-year midfielder Elijah Hewett.

The Eagles, currently sitting in dead last position on the ladder, have been categorically decimated by injury this season, with the likes of ruckman Nic Naitanui and emerging midfielder Jai Culley having already been ruled out for the remainder of 2023, forward Jake Waterman (illness) sidelined indefinitely, and defender Josh Rotham (thumb surgery) out for a minimum of six weeks.

Forward Jamie Cripps and defender Tom Cole, while nearing returns, still remain a ways away in their respective injury rehabilitation.

West Coast Head of Health Mark Finucane first detailed updates on Barrass, McGovern, and Duggan.

"Tom had a really good session late last week with game-like loads so he's ready to go for this week," Finucane told westcoasteagles.com.au on Tuesday.

"Jeremy (McGovern), along with TB (Tom Barrass), had a good session on Friday and got into all of training and he should be available this week.

"Liam (Duggan), after missing with illness, has fully recovered, had a good training week at the end of last week, and is available for this week."

Veteran ex-skipper Shannon Hurn, who continues to nurse a hamstring ailment, isn't expected to play this weekend and will instead aim for a Round 16 return when the Eagles host St Kilda.

Emerging rookie Elijah Hewett, meanwhile, is back available for selection after exiting the concussion protocols he was placed in following Jordan De Goey's off-ball bump.

"Elijah (Hewett) has worked his way through the protocols and had a good hit-out with the boys last Friday, and is available to play this weekend," Finucane continued.

"Shannon (Hurn) has done a good block of training after his hamstring strain. He's still got another final step later this week. Hopefully, we'll see him out there against St Kilda."

West Coast's side to take on the Swans will be announced on Thursday evening, with the match fixtured for 4:35 PM AEST at the SCG.
