FREMANTLE midfielder Harley Bennell will not see any game time for at least two months.

In a statement, football operations manager Chris Bond said the 24-year-old, who injured his left calf at training a week ago, would be off the park for a minimum eight weeks.

“Given his outstanding attitude and approach to injury rehabilitation since he has been at Fremantle, Harley and the club are now planning for him to be available for selection within eight to 10 weeks,” he said.

Bennell arrived at the Dockers from the Gold Coast Suns via the 2015 trade period.

Injuries have kept the number former two draft pick from making his debut in purple.
