Hawthorn ace Sam Mitchell will miss Friday night's AFL match against Essendon due to a back injury.

Mitchell was overlooked for the Etihad Stadium fixture, and the Hawks have also lost Taylor Duryea (hip) and Jon Ceglar (suspension), while Will Langford is among the inclusions.

Meanwhile, Collingwood has again dumped out-of-sorts forward Travis Cloke for Monday's game against Melbourne, and North Melbourne ruckman Todd Goldstein returns from a one-match absence due to a knee injury for Saturday night's game against Geelong.
