Brisbane coach Justin Leppitsch says first-year forward Josh Schache has "done enough" and will be rested for the remainder of the AFL season.

An exhausted Schache is nearing burn-out after holding up the attacking end for the Lions for much of the season, and has been omitted from the team for Saturday's clash with Carlton.

"He's done enough. We've put a lot of weight and load through him this year and it's a bit unfair on the youngest player in the comp," Leppitsch told reporters on Friday.
