BRISBANE Lions ruckman Matthew Leuenberger has been ruled out of Friday's NAB Cup final and is in doubt for Round 1.

Leuenberger has played just one quarter in the NAB Cup in his comeback from an Achilles injury that he suffered in Round 3 last season.

The Lions revealed today the ruckman was a late withdrawal from last Saturday night's win against Collingwood after pulling up sore following his brief game time against GWS.

He won't play in the NAB Cup final on Friday night and is now in doubt for Brisbane's first home-and-away match against the Western Bulldogs on March 30.

"We're going to give him the best chance to be ready," assistant coach Adrian Fletcher said after training today.

"We go back to three interchange players on the bench and that will make it a little more difficult. He's an important component to our set-up."

The AFL website reports the Lions are waiting on scans to determine if there has been any fresh damage to Leuenberger's foot.

But Fletcher was confident the setback is only minor.

"He's had a pretty good run over the pre-season, just had a minor hiccup and we think we'll get him going again Thursday.

"It's not serious at all. We've just got to make sure when it's in that area of the body, you've got to make sure you don't have a hiccup."
