THREE Port Adelaide players will be tested at training this week for a possible return to football.

Esava Ratugolea and Ryan Burton trained fully with the group on Tuesday, while Josh Sinn is expected re-join on Thursday.

All three will be assessed as the week progresses to prove their fitness for selection.

Trent McKenzie will spend another week on the sidelines rehabilitating a hamstring strain, but is expected to fully train next week, while Ivan Soldo continues to manage some knee soreness.

Port Adelaide will name its extended team for Sunday's game against Gold Coast on Thursday, before the final team is announced on Friday afternoon.
