Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matt Crouch Hip Test
Tom Doedee Knee Season
Richard Douglas Ankle Test
Sam Jacobs Knee 1-2 weeks
Wayne Milera AC joint 1-2 weeks
Andrew McPherson Back Test
Paul Seedsman Knee Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Crouch, Douglas and Seedsman could all be cleared to face Brisbane at the Gabba on Saturday. Crouch sustained a heavy contusion to his hip early in the third quarter of last Saturday night’s Showdown against Port Adelaide. He will be assessed at the club’s main training session on Thursday. Douglas has got through a large volume of training since having surgery for a high ankle sprain eight weeks ago. Seedsman is also expected to be available to play his first game since hyperextending his knee six weeks ago. Douglas and Seedsman would more than likely return through the SANFL, especially considering the Crows have won their past four AFL games. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Marcus Adams Knee 6 weeks
Zac Bailey Hamstring 6 weeks
Brandon Starcevich Hamstring 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Bad news for Bailey with another long setback. The speedy defender missed three weeks with a hamstring injury suffered in round three, played one NEAFL match and then re-injured it in the opening minutes against the Bulldogs. – Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Tom De Koning Knee 2-3 weeks
Sam Docherty Knee Indefinite
Zac Fisher Cork Test
Liam Jones Concussion 1 week
Kym Lebois Hamstring Test
Harrison Macreadie Achilles Test
Nic Newman Knee Test
Jarrod Pickett Knee Indefinite
Lachie Plowman Fractured cheekbone 1 week
Kade Simpson Hamstring 1 week
Tom Williamson Back 2 weeks
Updated: Monday, May 13

Early prognosis

The Blues face a defensive crisis, with Jones, Plowman, Williamson and Simpson unlikely to be available for selection. However, Newman is a chance as he returns from a knee injury. Fisher suffered a cork against Collingwood, but should be able to play. – Riley Beveridge

COLLINGWOOD

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Taylor Adams Groin 2-3 weeks
James Aish Concussion Test
Flynn Appleby Ankle Test
Dayne Beams Hip Test
Tyler Brown Shoulder 2 weeks
Mason Cox Ankle Test
Lynden Dunn Knee Season
Jamie Elliott Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Max Lynch Concussion Test
Chris Mayne Concussion Test
Nathan Murphy Ankle 2 weeks
Sam Murray Provisional ASADA suspension TBC
Matt Scharenberg Knee 5 weeks
Josh Thomas Ankle TBC
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Elliott won’t face St Kilda at the MCG on Saturday but Beams, Cox and Aish loom as handy inclusions. The Pies could be forced to make at least one change after the unlucky Mayne was concussed in his return from a fractured back, while Thomas was sore after a late knock against Carlton. Appleby, Murphy and Tyler Brown are nearing returns, but Adams is a little further away. Scharenberg is back training with the main group as he comes back from a third knee reconstruction, but the season seems over for veteran Dunn after a second anterior cruciate ligament rupture in nine months. – Ben Collins

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Mark Baguley Managed Available
Mitch Brown Wrist 1-2 weeks
Joe Daniher Managed Available
Sam Draper Knee Season
Orazio Fantasia Quad 3-4 weeks
Martin Gleeson Cheekbone 1-2 weeks
Tom Jok Knee 1 week
Jayden Laverde Hamstring Available
Shaun McKernan Hamstring 3-4 weeks
Kobe Mutch Hamstring 6-8 weeks
Trent Mynott Calf 1-2 weeks
Devon Smith Knee TBC
James Stewart Groin 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Smith is the big watch as he manages a knee issue that has dogged him throughout this year. He is seeing a specialist this week so the club will make a decision after that on its plans for last year’s best and fairest winner. Daniher and Baguley are available after being rested last week, while Laverde is also ready to play following another hamstring concern. Fantasia will miss about a month with a quad strain. Callum Twomey

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Hayden Ballantyne Hamstring 3 weeks
Harley Bennell Calf 2 weeks
Stephen Hill Quad 4 weeks
Shane Kersten Foot TBC
Aaron Sandilands Calf TBC
Sam Sturt Concussion 4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Hill is aiming to return to some football training next week after a laborious comeback from quad dramas, and importantly has been able to kick and run at speed recently. Bennell completed some match simulation over the weekend as he steps up his bid to revive his career. Kersten‘s hopes of playing AFL again this season are in serious doubt after his four-week timeframe returned to being in doubt after foot surgery. – Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Tom Atkins Hip flexor Test
Wylie Buzza Concussion Test
Nakia Cockatoo Knee Indefinite
Jordan Cunico Ankle 6-10 weeks
Lachie Henderson Foot TBC
Nathan Kreuger Concussion Test
Sam Menegola Knee Test
Quinton Narkle Hamstring 3 weeks
Gary Rohan Concussion Test
Joel Selwood Soreness Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Selwood missed round seven with an “upper leg” and last week with a “lower leg.” After barely training last week, the aim will be to get two big sessions into him ahead of the clash with the Dogs. Atkins was able to push through a hip complaint against the Roos, however will need a fitness test this week. Menegola was a late out with a knee injury sustained late in the week and will be touch-and-go this week. Rohan and Buzza will be monitored after concussions in the AFL and VFL matches, while Kreuger missed last week after concussion the week prior. Henderson has suffered another foot injury, with the Cats awaiting the full diagnosis. After a promising patch of form, Narkle strained his hamstring in the VFL.Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Callum Ah Chee Quad 1 week
Brayden Crossley Hamstring 1 week
Brayden Fiorini Knee Test
Sam Fletcher Quad 1 week
Pearce Hanley Quad TBC
Sean Lemmens Ankle 8 weeks
Izak Rankine Hamstring 3-5 weeks
Brad Scheer Hand 4-6 weeks
Rory Thompson Knee Season
Harrison Wigg Knee Season
Aaron Young Knee 4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Not good news for Lemmens, who is expected to spend another lengthy stint on the sidelines. He missed eight weeks after injuring the same ankle in the JLT Series. Hanley picked up a niggle late in Saturday night’s loss and will be tested through the week, while Fiorini is expected to be available. – Michael Whiting

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Aidan Corr Ankle 1 week
Shane Mumford Knee Test
Jonathon Patton Knee TBC
Tommy Sheridan Calf 3 weeks
Callan Ward Knee Season
Lachie Whitfield quad/hip flexor Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Whitfield and Mumford should be available to take on Carlton on Sunday in a big boost for the Giants. Brett Deledio is ready to play so coach Leon Cameron has to decide if he needs a run in the NEAFL before being recalled to senior level after missing the past six weeks with his calf injury. Key defender Corr should be fit to take on Melbourne at the MCG next week. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Grant Birchall Calf/knee Indefinite
Tom Mitchell Broken leg Indefinite
Tim Mohr Dislocated knee/ACL Season
Jack Scrimshaw Migraine Test
Isaac Smith Foot Test
Chad Wingard Hamstring Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

The Hawks say Scrimshaw‘s migraine caused him to have some blurred vision and he subsequently sat out most of the second half of Sunday’s win over the Giants. Smith aims to return to the field on Sunday after being a late withdrawal, while Wingard will increase his training load in the hope of also playing. Mitchell has undergone surgery to remove the metal plates and screws from his broken leg, so he will have some light weeks ahead before building up his running again. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Mitch Hannan Knee 1 week
Michael Hibberd Collarbone 2 weeks
Neville Jetta Knee 8-10 weeks
Jay Kennedy Harris Leg 1 week
Kade Kolodjashnij Concussion TBC
Jake Lever Knee Test
Steven May Groin 2-3 weeks
Corey Maynard Hip Test
Jake Melksham Foot 4-5 weeks
Aaron Nietschke Knee Season
Joel Smith Groin 4-6 weeks
Aaron vandenBerg Ankle TBC
Sam Weideman Hip Test
Guy Walker Shoulder Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Lewis (ankle) will have to do more training later in the week to prove his fitness for the game against the Eagles. However, he is in doubt to get up off a six-day break. Hibberd has had surgery on his collarbone and could return in a fortnight, while Melksham’s absence is a big loss for the Dees. Lever will play his first game back in the VFL this weekend. – Ben Guthrie

NORTH MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Majak Daw Pelvis/hips Indefinite
Ben Jacobs Head/neck Indefinite
Luke McDonald Knee Test
Ben McKay Quad Test
Tom McKenzie Back TBC
Tom Murphy Ankle Test
Bailey Scott Concussion Test
Scott Thompson Adductor Test
Dom Tyson Calf 4-5 weeks
Ed Vickers-Willis Knee Season
Will Walker PCL Indefinite
Tom Wilkinson Ankle 7-9 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Tyson‘s tough start to his career at Arden St continues, with confirmation he will miss at least another month. He was first held out with calf tightness but suffered a recurrence in the VFL a fortnight ago. McDonald and Thompson will both have to pass fitness tests to return to the senior side, while Marley Williams was managed last week and should be right to go. Defenders McKay and Murphy will also hope to be available for VFL selection this weekend.Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ryan Burton Hamstring 3-4 weeks
Charlie Dixon Leg 3-4 weeks
Brad Ebert Concussion Indefinite
Robbie Gray Hand Test
Hamish Hartlett Hamstring 2 weeks
Tom Jonas Calf 1 week
Jake Patmore Knee Season
Jack Watts Leg Indefinite
Ollie Wines Leg 5-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Initially slated to miss four weeks with a broken hand, Gray is a chance to return after just two and face Gold Coast at Adelaide Oval on Sunday. It would be a much-needed boost to a growing injury list at Alberton. Burton is out for up to a month with a hamstring strain, Jonas will miss a fourth straight game with a calf injury and Ebert will have more tests to determine if he’s right to return from concussion. But there are two bits of good news – the Power finally have a firm timeline on Dixon’s return from a badly broken leg and dislocated ankle, and ruckman Sam Hayes will play in the SANFL this weekend in his first game in almost 12 months after a torn ACL. The Power are aiming for Dixon to make his comeback after the mid-season bye. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Trent Cotchin Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Luke English Tonsillitis Test
Jack Graham Hamstring 1 week
Shaun Grigg Knee/hip Retired
Callum Moore Ankle 8-10 weeks
Toby Nankervis Adductor 6-8 weeks
Alex Rance Knee Season
Jack Riewoldt PCL 5-7 weeks
Daniel Rioli Ribs/quad Test
Jack Ross Ankle 6-8 weeks
Jayden Short Elbow 5-6 weeks
Nick Vlastuin Ankle Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Despite David Astbury and Oleg Markov now being fully fit, Richmond’s injury list stays at 12, with Nankervis and Ross added after suffering serious injuries against Fremantle. Nankervis has torn a muscle and some tendon off the bone, while Ross needs surgery for a syndesmosis injury. Vlastuin and Rioli are likely to play this week while Grigg has officially hung up the boots after persistent knee and hip injuries. Short has only just come out of his elbow brace after dislocating it, while Riewoldt is expected to start jogging possibly at the end of next week. The club is aiming for a round 11 return for skipper Cotchin.Sarah Black

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Logan Austin Shoulder Indefinite

Doulton Langlands Concussion Test
Jack Lonie Knee 6-8 weeks
Paddy McCartin Concussion Indefinite
Lewis Pierce Concussion Test
Dylan Roberton Heart Season
Jack Steven Mental health Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

A first appearance for Hannebery since he was traded to the Saints at the end of last season is in sight. The skipper, Geary, is on a similar timeline after a gruesome surgery that saw his right thigh sliced open. Important defender Carlisle could be back after the bye. – Dinny Navaratnam

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Harry Cunningham Adductor 6-8 weeks
Lance Franklin Hamstring Test
Heath Grundy Back 3-4 weeks
Jack Maibaum Knee Season
Jarrad McVeigh Quad 3-4 weeks
Sam Naismith Knee TBC
Nick Smith Hamstring TBC
Durak Tucker Knee Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

Franklin might be another week away with his hamstring strain after missing the past three games, but he could come in to face North Melbourne on Saturday night if he gets through training this week. – Adam Curley

WEST COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Tom Barrass Foot 7-9 weeks
Patrick Bines Hernia TBC
Hamish Brayshaw Toe 3 weeks
Jarrod Cameron Wrist Test
Tom Hickey Hamstring Test
Nic Naitanui Knee Indefinite
Willie Rioli Foot Test
Francis Watson Shoulder 2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

The Eagles should be bolstered by Rioli and Hickey’s returns, with the duo only needing to get through training on Tuesday night to be available to play. There is a watch on Will Schofield after a heavy bump against St Kilda, with the experienced defender absent from training on Monday. Cameron should be available to return in the WAFL on Thursday night. – Travis King

WESTERN BULLDOGS

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ben Cavarra Hamstring 3-5 weeks
Taylor Duryea Hip 4-6 weeks
Tim English Soreness Test
Fergus Greene Ankle 2-3 weeks
Lin Jong Appendix Test
Dale Morris Knee 4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 14

Early prognosis

English was a late withdrawal against Brisbane at Mars Stadium on Saturday and replaced by Fletcher Roberts. The ruckman has been managing several knocks from the round seven demolition of Richmond and still has work to do at training to prove his fitness. Jong nearly featured at VFL level on Sunday and should be raring to go this Saturday at Whitten Oval. Paul Bastin
