Top West Coast draft pick Campbell Chesser remains under an injury cloud heading into the 2023 season after being sidelined by injury issues last year.

Chesser, who was drafted with pick 14 in the 2021 AFL National Draft, looked on track for a Round 1 debut last season but suffered an ankle injury in a practice match.

The club confirmed that Chesser had suffered bone and ligament damage to his foot after landing awkwardly in a marking contest in the February match-up and was subsequently ruled out for an extended period of time.

Speaking to in during his recovery, the 19-year-old said that he was progressing well and expected to return to full training with his teammates before the end of the year.

"I'm back running now a couple of times a week, which is exciting, and my ankle is responding really well to increasing demands and progressions in my program," Chesser said.

"Every time I've caught up with the surgeon he's been surprised with how well it has responded from the surgery, so everything is really positive and tracking in the right direction.

"It's really good to get back outside again running around the oval and I know I probably won't get to play this year, but a goal of mine is just to get back fully training with the boys."

However, per the West Australian, Chesser is still yet to participate in high-intensity drills, with the club admitting that the young Eagle is being "managed" as the season nears.

The 19-year-old did not participate in match simulation on Friday, remaining with the rehab group.

Oscar Allen, Tom Cole and Dom Sheed did feature as the trio continue their return from respective injuries in 2022.
