West Coast's Luke Shuey goes down injured against Port Adelaide. He'll be out for three weeks

West Coast have confirmed they will be without gun midfielder Luke Shuey for up to three AFL games as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Shuey injured his right hamstring just minutes into the Eagles' 42-point win over Port Adelaide at Optus Stadium on Saturday.

"The doctors have confirmed it is definitely a strain on the scan," Eagles football boss Craig Vozzo said.

"He'll miss two, possibly three weeks."

Shuey will definitely miss an away clash against Greater Western Sydney, a home game against Richmond and possibly a road trip to face Hawthorn at Etihad Stadium.

In other injury news, Lewis Jetta and Dom Sheed are still a week away with their respective calf and foot injuries.

"With Jetts, we're probably going to be a little bit more conservative this time given that he had a recurrence previously," Vozzo said.

"It'll hopefully be another week and we'll hopefully be in a position to look at him for selection next week.

"Dominic's making really good progress ... he's started his on-track work and slowly building that up.

"He'll probably be another week, possibly two, but we're hoping (for) next week."

Ruckman Nathan Vardy is still a fortnight away after aggravating an adductor in his return to football with East Perth.
