Key forward Jay Schulz has been ruled out of Port Adelaide's clash with Geelong at Skilled Stadium on Sunday.
The former Tiger took a heavy knock to his knee last week against Brisbane and had been under an injury cloud throughout the week.
The Power have brought in youngster Daniel Stewart, who will make his debut after getting the nod ahead of talented ruck prospect Matthew Lobbe.
Power coach Mark Williams said the inclusion of Stewart wouldn't leave the Power's ruck stocks short.
"Daniel Stewart is actually in instead of Jay Schulz so he's playing in the forward line," he said.
"He (Stewart) might (play in the ruck) but we have (Jackson) Trengrove and (Justin) Westhoff as well so we have some good flexibility there."
Williams hinted that a debut for the potential successor to Brogan, Lobbe wasn't far off, but remained coy about putting a time frame on the decision to give him a run.
"Yeah, he's not too far..." he said.
The Power boss praised Stewart's pre-season and said he was a stand out forward during the NAB Cup.
"I thought he (Stewart) was certainly up there with our best forwards in the pre-season," he said.
"We think if he can continue on with the form that he showed in the pre-season we'll be very happy with him."
Williams said the inclusion of David Rodan was a boost and he hoped to see the pocket rocket get through the match unscathed.
"I think it's a great credit to him (Rodan) and certainly the medical and fitness people to get him back. A lot of it is to do with the mental condition of the player. He's worked really hard with the fitness staff so hopefully he gets a good return."
"Emotions are one thing, but what he does is he's a great clearance player and he's also got great agility and he carries the ball so it just opens up the forward line for us."
"Having said that the Geelong blokes will probably just put (Cameron) Ling on him for the day (laughs). We understand that it will take a few weeks for him to get back to his top form."
Williams said he was expecting a tough match against the reigning premier who will play its first home game for the season after three road trips including a gruelling loss to Fremantle at Subiaco.
Port Adelaide was the last side to beat Geelong at Skilled Stadium way back in Round 21, 2007. But that win is "ancient history" according to Williams.
"I reckon 30 or 40 per cent of our side had nothing to do with that game so it's ancient history and we have to make our own."
"You can imagine they don't lose two in a row too often so they'll be pretty keen."
It should be a great game, our players are really looking forward to it. Geelong are the premiers and you don't get to play them too many times during the year. It's a great opportunity to go down there and have a crack at them and play in front of a full house," Williams said.
