Fremantle defender Alex Pearce is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left ankle.
Pearce suffered a season-ending ankle injury in round 11 against Collingwood at the MCG.
The 24-year-old consulted a surgeon in Melbourne on Wednesday.
General manager of football Peter Bell said the specialist’s advice was that Pearce undergo a minor procedure on his ankle to assist with the final stage of the fracture healing.
“Alex will have a minor procedure on his left ankle, and we are hopeful that he will return to football training in late February before the Marsh Community Series gets underway,” Bell said.
