Melbourne forward Charlie Spargo has failed to train with his teammates on Monday, raising further questions about his fitness leading into Saturday's AFL grand final against the Western Bulldogs.

Spargo injured his left ankle during a tackling drill on Saturday, and he was a mere on-field spectator while his teammates trained at HBF Arena in Joondalup.

The 21-year-old wasn't even kitted up for the session, and instead talked to teammates and the club's trainers.

Spargo wore sneakers and had strapping on his left ankle, but didn't have a limp when he walked.

The Demons have previously said that Spargo isn't in doubt for the decider at Optus Stadium.

Key defender Steven May, who injured his hamstring in the preliminary final win over Geelong, was able to complete the low-key session without any issues.

But dashing defender Christian Salem was on light duties, taking himself out of certain drills and not overly exerting himself.

The rest of Melbourne's big guns were on show, including star midfielder Clayton Oliver who finished third in the Brownlow medal vote on Sunday night.

Oliver finished with 31 votes - five behind winner Ollie Wines.
