Richmond veteran Bachar Houli won't make his return this weekend.
The Tigers confirmed on Friday that Houli was a late withdrawal for their clash with Port Adelaide, with Houli telling the club he is not quite ready to return.
Houli strained his hamstring in the first game of the season against Carlton.
“Bachar trained this week, however, he didn’t feel 100% ready to play," Richmond's head of football Neil Balme said.
"We felt that it was best to make a change, and look ahead to next week for him."
Connor Menadue replaces Houli in the side, with Oleg Markov now an emergency.
