Richard Douglas and Paul Seedsman are set to return from injury this weekend to face Port Adelaide in the SANFL.

Douglas was ruled out for two months following an ankle injury in the Crows’ first round clash with Hawthorn at Adelaide Oval.

Two weeks later, against Geelong, Seedsman suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter and was stretchered from the ground.
