Signs new contract

Switkowski (hamstring) signed a two-year contract extension with Fremantle that will tie him to the club through the 2023 season.
Switkowski has only played six times this season but scored as many as 97 points in the Round 2 game against GWS. With a return from injury imminent, Switkowski can have a big say in how the Dockers turn around what has been an inconsistent season.
Listed as test

Switkowski (hamstring) is listed as a test for Round 15 against Collingwood, according to GM Peter Bell. "(Switkowski) had that hamstring from a couple of weeks ago, he's another one who's benefitted from the bye and we think he'll be available as well."
Switkowski needs to get through training but has a good chance to play against the Magpies. Aside from a 97-point performance in Round 2, Switkowski hasn't produced much outside of a low value tier.
Out at least one week

Switkowski (hamstring) has been ruled out for at least Round 12, according to high performance manager Phil Merriman. "He'll miss this week and we'll grade him up and see how he goes in the weeks to come."
Switkowski could miss at least a couple of games if the Dockers are more conservative with his recovery. After starting his season with four goals in three games, his value has plummeted substantially.
Subbed out as precaution

Switkowski was subbed out early into Sunday's Round 11 loss to Port Adelaide as a precaution for a hamstring injury, according to senior coach Justin Longmuir. "There wasn't any point taking a risk on (Switkowski). He's had some issues in the past with that so we will just have to get him scanned and see what that scan shows us first, it's not overly serious."
Switkowski may not miss a single match if the correct decision was made on some tightness felt during Sunday's match. However, hamstring injuries usually take 10 days to recover from or longer, and a history of soft tissue injuries will make the club even more careful with his rehabilitation.
Could return this weekend

Switkowski (broken finger) could return to the field for Round 9 against Essendon, according to GM Peter Bell.
Switkowski has only played three times this season but produced a solid four goals and 15 marks. If he's back, that'll add a needed boost to the forward line for the Dockers.
