West Coast coach Adam Simpson has declared his team might stop training at Optus Stadium after Tom Barrass became the latest Eagle to fall victim to the hard turf.

Barrass was a late withdrawal from Friday night's 42-point loss to Port Adelaide after succumbing to a foot injury.

It's not yet known how serious the injury is, but Simpson fears it could potentially be a stress-related problem.

The Eagles have been plagued by foot and lower leg injuries over the summer, with Simpson thinking the damage has been caused by the hardness of Optus Stadium.

The $1.6 billion stadium came under fire last year because of its hardness, with Sydney star Lance Franklin missing three games with a heel injury that the Swans attributed to the hard turf.

West Coast currently have goalsneak Willie Rioli sidelined with a foot injury, while Elliot Yeo and Jamie Cripps battled toe injuries during the off-season.
