Star forward Jesse Hogan will be unavailable for selection for an indefinite period following his cancer diagnosis, leaving the Demons to rely on a makeshift forward line that performed superbly in the club's 41-point win over the Crows.

Emerging defender Jayden Hunt suffered a concussion against Adelaide and will be monitored carefully during the week before a decision is made on whether he will be fit to face North Melbourne.

If he is not cleared following the concussion protocol, Alex Neal-Bullen and James Harmes will be in line for a recall after performing strongly for Casey in the VFL.

Neal-Bullen racked up 35 disposals and kicked a goal, while Harmes had 41 touches and was named Casey's best player in a 55-point loss.

Jake Melksham is available for selection after serving his one-week suspension by the VFL tribunal and could also be considered by Simon Goodwin and his match committee.
