Liam Ryan has suffered a potential leg injury at West Coast training on Monday, sparking new concerns after a heavily hampered 2023 season.
The 27-year-old reportedly went down during a drill within an hour of the session starting before limping to the rooms with staff.
According to the West Australian, Ryan's clutched at his right leg on exiting the ground.
The forward and 2020 All Australian featured in just three games for the Eagles last year before a hamstring injury ended his season from round four onwards.
Ryan underwent two surgeries following the interruption.
West Coast's senior men's squad returned for preseason training just last week with the extent of his latest hiccup unclear.
It came after successive seasons going at more than a goal a game since debuting in 2018 - which ended in lifting the premiership cup over Collingwood.
An injury looms as horrible timing for Ryan with indications, as recent as the weekend, of an offer to extend at the club until the end of 2026 set to slide in front of the fan-favourite.
A consistent 2024 could see him notch 100 senior games for the battling club.
