FREMANTLE forward Jesse Hogan has taken his first steps towards a comeback by joining Dockers teammates in their resumption of training on Monday.
Players across the competition returned to their clubs for the first time since the season was postponed in March to begin the 24-day build-up to round two.
Hogan was sighted on the track at the Dockers' Cockburn base, having previously been away from the club dealing with his mental health since January.
The 25-year-old was part of several groups of seven players that swapped throughout the day for sessions lasting around an hour to deal with social distancing rules.
Veteran David Mundy returned strongly and appears ready to return from a broken leg, while Blake Acres completed his first session after a hamstring tendon setback.
Ten Dockers still obeying 14-day self-isolation rules after returning to WA trained separately and weren't allowed inside the training facilities.
