Hawthorn forward Jack Gunston is set to take his place against Geelong on Sunday.
Gunston missed last week's win over Fremantle with a minor leg injury, but will re-join the line-up as the side looks to post its third consecutive win.
The Cats currently sit two games clear on top of the ladder, despite losing two of their last four games.
Midfielder Daniel Howe has been left out of this week's side.
Hawthorn will meet Geelong at the MCG on Sunday at 1.10pm.
