West Coast spearhead Josh Kennedy will have to prove his fitness later this week to return from injury after taking little part in this morning's session at Patersons Stadium.

The 26-year-old spent the full 75-minute session out on the ground, but was not involved in any contact work as he continues his recovery from surgery on a fractured cheekbone.

Kennedy practised his marking and goal kicking largely separate from the rest of the playing group.

He is listed as a test on West Coast's official injury list and remains in doubt for Saturday night's clash against Gold Coast at Patersons Stadium. A loss would almost certainly spell the end of any rapidly diminishing finals hopes for the Eagles.

Jack Darling spent limited time on the track, heading back into the rooms after about 15 minutes.

Veterans Dean Cox and Darren Glass were among other onlookers for much of the session.

Brad Sheppard moved freely after missing Saturday's defeat to Hawthorn at Aurora Stadium with a corked buttock.

West Coast finished off training by practicing end-to-end ball movement drills. Players missed targets on five occasions during a four-minute spell during the first drill as the club continues to try and address its problems through the midfield.
