Western Bulldogs captain Brad Johnson says he is still not sure whether he will return to the AFL side for next Saturday night’s clash with Brisbane at the Gabba.
Johnson sat out today’s clash with Hawthorn, his second straight match missed because of a virus.
While he had recovered, he said he needed more training time.
“I just haven’t had enough training under my belt to look like getting out there at the moment,” Johnson said.
“So I’ll train all next week, hopefully get through that OK and then it will be determined whether I go to Brisbane or not.
“Obviously being an away game and a travel, they’ll determine whether I go to that or get me cherry ripe for the following week against the Crows on the Friday night.”
Johnson missed all of the Bulldogs’ preseason cup campaign with calf and Achilles injuries, with his only match so far this year the round one loss to Collingwood.
