Port Adelaide has confirmed skipper Travis Boak has a corked hamstring, leaving him in doubt for next week.

Boak was kneed in the back of the leg during the third quarter of Port Adelaide's Friday night demolishing of Carlton.

He was seen talking to trainers for an extended period during the quarter, eventually being removed from the game.

Coach Ken Hinkley spoke after the match, saying the skipper will need scans.

"Trav, at this stage, has got a cork in the hamstring," he said.

"We'll scan it and if it comes up as a hamstring [injury] we won't have a choice (but to rest him)."

Hinkley also said the club was reviewing the fitness of Hamish Hartlett, after he was withdrawn from last night's clash with a sore quad.

"We've had a pretty tough couple of weeks, and as a team you eventually pay a price," he said.

"Hammer was one of those them who, in six days, we thought would get up, but he didn't and we didn't want to take a risk."

He expected Hartlett would be fit to play Brisbane next week.
