Suffers hamstring injury in loss

Hamstring
July 25, 2021
Walters suffered a hamstring injury during the Round 19 loss to Sydney, according to coach Justin Longmuir. "(Walters has) got a hammy, so we'll get it scanned...we're getting close to the end of the year now as well, so he's going to cut it fine to get back this year."
ANALYSIS
Walters may not return before the end of the home-and-away season, as Fremantle aren't as likely to make the finals as they once were so there's only a few weeks to go. For now, he'll await further scans.
Named to lineup

Walters was selected to the lineup for Sunday's Round 3 match against Carlton.
ANALYSIS
Walters will make his first appearance of the season after recovering from a hamstring injury. He scored 15 goals last season and logged 247 disposals, which are both fairly average numbers.

Walters (hamstring) needs another week in training before he could be available to play, according to GM of Football Peter Bell. "He's progressing well, we'll just reassess how he's going through main training this week,"
ANALYSIS
Walters should be back in April if nothing else comes up. He's a needed forward for the Dockers, who don't really have many scoring options right now and could use Walters, who scored 15 majors last season.
Firm-footed in slippery conditions

Walters totaled 11 disposals (seven kicks, four handballs), four tackles, three goals and one behind in Monday's 47-33 victory over the Demons.
ANALYSIS
On a night in which goals were hard to come by, Walters led the way with three majors. it marked a season-high for the dynamic forward, although his disposal count was a little disappointing. He often floats between the forward line and the midfield, thus his inconsistent production in terms of disposals. It was the Dockers' sixth win of the season and despite being out of the race for the finals, they certainly have a lot to build off after a slow start to the season.
Making return Saturday

Walters (hamstring) will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's clash with Carlton.
ANALYSIS
Walters's return is major news for a Fremantle club looking to continue its string of two straight victories Saturday. He posted one of his best games of the season versus Geelong before exiting late with the hamstring issue, racking up 22 disposals, seven marks and four tackles.
