Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Kyle Cheney Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Ben Davis * Foot Season
Cam Ellis-Yolmen* Knee Season
Jordan Gallucci Shin TBC
Josh Jenkins Ribs Test
Alex Keath Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Mitch McGovern Hamstring 8-12 weeks
Paul Seedsman Groin Indefinite
Scott Thompson Adductor Test
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

 

Early prognosis

McGovern will miss up to three months with a torn hamstring sustained in round three. The club is hopeful he won't need surgery. Kelly will consult a specialist after he was poked in the eye in the win over Essendon last weekend. Jenkins will train on Wednesday to test out his fractured ribs. Seedsman is being treated cautiously with a groin injury that troubled him the entire pre-season, while veteran midfielder Thompson missed his second-straight game in the SANFL with an adductor injury. The Crows' first-round draft pick, Jordan Gallucci, suffered a shin injury in the SANFL last weekend and will be monitored during the week- Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Tom Cutler Hamstring TBC
Rhys Mathieson Ankle Test
Sam Skinner* Knee 5 weeks
Reuben William Shoulder 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Cutler is waiting for results on his hamstring injury but will almost certainly miss this week. Mathieson is back into full training and is touch-and-go to make his return after a month out. If he makes it, the hard-nut midfielder will play in the NEAFL. - Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ciaran Byrne Knee June-July
Daniel Gorringe Achilles 4 weeks
Jed Lamb Knee 1 week
Kym Lebois Quad 3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Coach Brendon Bolton admitted after last Saturday night’s loss to the Suns that Patrick Cripps was playing sore but the star midfielder is expected to line up against Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval on Friday night. Young defender Harrison Macreadie left the field with a leg injury but returned after half-time and will be available to face the Power. - Howard Kotton

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Jordan De Goey         Club-imposed suspension 2 weeks
Tom Langdon   Knee 2-3 weeks
Sam McLarty  Leg TBC
Ben Sinclair* Hamstring 10-12 weeks
Brayden Sier Head  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

De Goey still has two weeks to serve as part of a club-imposed three-game suspension for initially lying about how he sustained a broken knuckle. The Pies hope Langdon will start training again shortly. Sinclair is still eyeing a return in the second half of the year. - Ben Collins

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ben Howlett Hamstring Available
Jayden Laverde* Ankle 6-8 weeks
Conor McKenna Suspension Round six
Alex Morgan Hamstring Test
David Myers* Finger Available
Mason Redman Groin Available
Jordan Ridley* Back 4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

The Bombers will have David Myers available for selection for the first time this season following finger surgery but it seems likely he will play in the VFL before being ready for senior consideration. Ben Howlett is back from his hamstring injury and available to be picked, and it means the club has a pretty healthy list. Jayden Laverde's exciting speed and marking ability would be handy for the Bombers but he is still some way off making a return from his serious ankle injury. - Callum Twomey

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Apeness   Knee 1-3 weeks
Hayden Ballantyne   Hamstring  4-6 weeks
Harley Bennell  Calf  8-10 weeks
Zac Clarke*  Knee  TBA
Brennan Cox Ankle Test
Josh Deluca Groin 4 weeks
Alex Pearce   Leg TBA
Luke Ryan Hip 2-3 weeks
Nick Suban Concussion Test
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBA
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Nick Suban and young ruckman Sean Darcy were both concussed in Peel Thunder's loss to West Perth on Good Friday and are in doubt this week after pulling up groggy. Hayden Ballantyne is back running but has yet to reach top speed in his comeback from hamstring tendon surgery, while Michael Apeness is expected to join main training by the end of next week following a PCL issue. - Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ryan Abbott Back 1-2 weeks
Cory Gregson* Foot 6 weeks
George Horlin-Smith Fractured thumb Test
Sam Menegola Suspended 1 week
James Parsons Suspended 2 weeks
Scott Selwood Toe Available
Tom Ruggles Concussion Test
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

As the injury list thins, two suspensions open up opportunities for George Horlin-Smith and Lincoln McCarthy to return to the team. Ruggles will need to pass concussion tests to play while Patrick Dangerfield was sore after the game but the coach indicated he would be available against St Kilda. - Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ben Ainsworth Corked quad 4 weeks
Michael Barlow Hamstring Test
Sam Day Hip Season
Mitch Hallahan Hamstring 2 weeks
Pearce Hanley Heel 1 week
Steven May Hamstring 2 weeks
Trent McKenzie Hamstring 2 weeks
Michael Rischitelli Knee Indefinite
David Swallow Ankle Test
Rory Thompson Quad 2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Hanley was in a moon boot after his NEAFL return on Saturday and despite the club insisting it was a precaution, he will miss this week. Thompson's quad problem leaves the Suns desperately short of experienced tall defenders, with May also ruled out. Barlow and Swallow will be on light duties early in the week, but both are expected to play at this stage. The Suns are taking every precaution with the talented Ainsworth's badly corked quad, given he is a first-year player. - Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matt Buntine Knee Season
Stephen Coniglio Ankle 2-3 weeks
Brett Deledio Calf TBC
Tom Downie* Illness Indefinite
Ryan Griffen Ankle 8-10 weeks
Harrison Himmelberg  Ribs  1-2 weeks
Steve Johnson Knee Test
Tendai Mzungu Hamstring 8-10 weeks
Will Setterfield Ankle 8-10 weeks
Heath Shaw Shin Test
Dylan Shiel Shoulder Test
Lachie Whitfield Suspended Round eight
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Shaw and Shiel should be right to face the Swans on Saturday after playing out the game against Port, and Johnson should also prove his fitness and come into the side, if he can get through training on Wednesday and pull up well. Himmelberg fell on the footy in the NEAFL game on the weekend and damaged his ribs, which is rotten luck given he's so close to senior selection. Buntine travelled with the team to Canberra last weekend as a popular and valuable clubman, and is still weighing up where and when to have his ACL surgery. - Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Grant Birchall Fractured jaw 2 weeks
Jonathon Ceglar* Knee 10 weeks
Josh Gibson Head knock Available
 Luke Hodge  Head knock Available
Kieran Lovell Shoulder Indefinite
Jaeger O'Meara Knock to knee Test
Ty Vickery Back Test
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

O'Meara did some ball work on Tuesday and would appear a lock to return on Sunday against West Coast provided he completes training later this week. Vickery is also expected to train fully when the Hawks return to the track on Thursday. No worries for Gibson and Hodge after their knocks to the head against the Cats. And despite playing just 60 minutes in the VFL on the weekend, the Hawks are flagging that outside midfielder Jonathan O'Rourke is in the mix to play against the Eagles after recovering from a hamstring strain. - Ashley Browne

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Colin Garland* Knee Season
Max Gawn Hamstring 12 weeks
Liam Hulett Hip flexor Test
Mitch King* Knee 1-2 weeks
Jordan Lewis Suspended Round six
Pat McKenna Hamstring 6-8 weeks
Joel Smith Shoulder 3-4 months
Aaron vandenBerg Heel 6-8 weeks
Sam Weideman Corked leg Test
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Melbourne has a nine-day recovery period between its loss to Fremantle and the Anzac Day eve game showdown with Richmond. After a tough slog against the Dockers, the Demons will use that time to nurse some sore bodies. Apart from Jordan Lewis (who will return from a three-game suspension next week), the Demons don't have many players returning from injury in the coming weeks. - Ben Guthrie

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Paul Ahern* Knee Season
Ben Jacobs Foot 2-3 week
Oscar Junker Broken tibia 7-9 weeks
Mitch Hibberd Concussion Test
Jarrad Waite AC joint 2-3 weeks
Sam Wright Ankle 6-8 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Thomas (shoulder) came off early in the first quarter on Good Friday, but returned and played the game out. Wright has had another setback and his return date is once again pushed out. It was otherwise mostly good news for North on the injury front, although round one debutant Mitch Hibberd was stretchered off when playing for Werribee after a head clash with Geelong's Tom Atkins. Mason Wood (knee) emerged unscathed from his VFL return. - Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Cameron Hewett Concussion Test
Jack Hombsch Knee 1-2 weeks
Matthew Lobbe Hamstring Test
Angus Monfries Hamstring Test
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Monfries is set to play his first game of the year after having shoulder surgery in the off-season and picking up a hamstring injury during pre-season. The 30-year-old forward will come back through the SANFL. Hombsch could return for the Power for their round six game against Brisbane Lions at the Gabba on April 29. - Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Nathan Broad* Shoulder 7-9 weeks*
Shane Edwards Hip 1-3 weeks
Jack Graham* Ankle Indefinite*
Ben Griffiths Concussion Test
Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, April 13

Early prognosis

The Tigers have been conservative with Ben Griffiths, but two matches on the sidelines should be enough to see him cleared for selection this week. The Anzac Day eve game will mark 25 days since his head in round two. Edwards is the only other injured Tiger who could return in the short-term, but his hip injury is still keeping him out of full training. - Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage TBC Test
Nick Coughlan Foot 1 week
Jack Steven Punctured lung Available
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

The Saints are confident Jack Steven will be back from a punctured lung to face Geelong on Sunday. The onballer has been running at training and is desperate to return. Fellow midfielder David Armitage missed a couple of weeks with a groin injury and returned against Collingwood but was sore late in the game. - Dinny Navaratnam

SYD-5-strap.jpg.jpeg

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Darcy Cameron Shoulder Test
Isaac Heeney Glandular fever Test
Alex Johnson* Knee Indefinite
Jarrad McVeigh Calf Test
Sam Naismith Knee 4 weeks
Dane Rampe Arm 6 weeks
Dan Robinson Collarbone 4-6 weeks
Gary Rohan Back/hamstring Test
Kurt Tippett Ankle Test
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

Tippett, McVeigh, Heeney and Rohan all trained solidly on Tuesday and barring any mishaps at Thursday's short session, will be available for selection. Rohan is likely to play reserves for at least one week, maybe two, while the other three should be picked for the Sydney derby. Naismith will miss a month after a teammate fell across his left knee at training last week, and he's in a brace, the same type worn by Rampe to aid his recovery from his arm injury, while Cameron had his shoulder strapped but trained on Tuesday, albeit without doing any contact work. Robinson has done some low intensity ball work, along with Johnson, who is training without strapping on his troublesome knee, and looks like he's jumping out of his skin at training. - Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Jack Darling Ankle Test
Scott Lycett* Shoulder 4-6 weeks
Sam Mitchell Ankle Test
Nic Naitanui* Knee Late 2017 season
Drew Petrie Hand 6 weeks
Willie Rioli Hamstring 4 weeks
Simon Tunbridge Knee Mid-late 2017 season
Jake Waterman Foot 8 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

The Eagles' injury list has shortened after Matthew Allen (hamstring) and Tom Cole (quad) made comebacks in East Perth's reserves side last weekend. Jack Darling is expected to be fine to face Hawthorn after missing the Swans win, while Sam Mitchell looks increasingly likely to line-up against his old side. Scott Lycett continues to make a strong recovery from shoulder surgery and has been building his strength work in the gym. Willie Rioli is increasing his workload and will soon be introduced to drills after hamstring surgery. - Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Tom Boyd Concussion Test
Travis Cloke Broken ribs 4-6 weeks
Stewart Crameri Hip 2-3 weeks
Tory Dickson Abdominal 1 week
Dale Morris Leg 5-6 weeks
Jack Redpath Knee TBC
Jordan Roughead Hamstring 4-5 weeks
Roarke Smith Knee Season
Mitch Wallis Broken leg 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, April 18

Early prognosis

The loss of Travis Cloke to broken ribs is a big blow to the Bulldogs, considering the long-term injuries to fellow big men Jordan Roughead and Jack Redapath. In better news, the club is confident Tom Boyd will be fit to face the Brisbane Lions at Etihad Stadium on Saturday. The news isn't so good for Stewart Crameri, who managed only a half in the VFL at the weekend in his return from a hip concern. He limped from the ground in deep conversation with Luke Beveridge, and wasn't seen again. Midfielder Mitch Wallis is a chance to play in the VFL in his return from a badly broken leg he sustained last season. - Ryan Davidson
