It’s the opposite leg to the hamstring injury that kept Fyfe sidelined for three games before returning in Round 23 to defeat GWS.

Fremantle has yet to set a timeline for Fyfe’s recovery, but the two-time Brownlow medalist has been ruled out of Saturday night’s knockout duel against the Bulldogs at Optus Stadium.

“These hamstring injuries are very individual to each individual,” Dockers football manager Peter Bell said in a statement.

“We won’t have a timeline for Nathan’s return just yet, but we hope to see him at some point in the upcoming finals series.”

Fyfe has only played seven games this season after surviving multiple shoulder surgeries, a knee injury and back surgery last year.

The Dockers are hoping Rory Lobb (shoulder) and swingman Griffin Logue (adductors) are fit for the return against the Bulldogs.

Key forward Matt Taberner (Wade) is also in the running to prove his fitness.
