Early prognosis

The Crows could regain Matt CrouchLuke Brown and Wayne Milera for Sunday’s big clash with Melbourne in Alice Springs. Rory Sloane is another three to four weeks away with a Lisfranc ligament strain. He hasn’t played since round four. Taylor Walker could also return for the round 13 game with Hawthorn, but after the bye is probably more likely. – Lee Gaskin

BRISBANE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Jack Payne  Shin  3 weeks
 Sam Skinner  ACL  Indefinite
 Toby Wooller  Finger  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Updated: Thursday, May 17

Early prognosis

The Blues regain skipper Murphy after he was close to returning last Saturday. Williamson is a chance to resume in the VFL after a long absence, but Marchbank still has bone bruising in his ankle and will miss this week. – Howard Kotton

COLLINGWOOD

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 James Aish  Knee  7-9 weeks
 Tim Broomhead  Broken leg  Season
 Jamie Elliott  Hamstring  TBC
 Alex Fasolo  Ankle  6-7 weeks

 Brayden Maynard  Ankle  Test

Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

Fasolo will spend a considerable time on the sidelines with a suspected syndesmosis injury, but Reid and Maynard remain chances to face the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium on Friday night. The Pies will be conservative with injury-plagued pair Elliott and Moore. The club continues to monitor Kirby’s heart issue. – Ben Collins

 Travis Colyer  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Joe Daniher  Groin  3-4 weeks
 Martin Gleeson  Ankle  4-5 weeks
 Michael Hurley  Hamstring  Test
 Andrew McGrath  Calf  Test
 David Myers  Hip  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

The Bombers will make a call on Hurley (hamstring), McGrath (calf) and Myers (hip) later in the week as the trio battle their niggling injuries. They will be hoping they can get Hurley back for their defence and McGrath would also walk straight back into their line-up. – Callum Twomey

FREMANTLE

 Sean Darcy  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Hugh Dixon  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Brady Grey  Hamstring  TBA

GEELONG

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Nakia Cockatoo  Knee (PCL)  2 weeks
 Charlie Constable  Concussion  Test
 Lachie Fogarty  Groin soreness  Test
 Cam Guthrie  Ankle  3-4 weeks
 Lachie Henderson  Knee  Indefinite
 Daniel Menzel  Groin  TBC
 Brandan Parfitt  Foot  Test
 Scott Selwood  Back  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

While Nakia Cockatoo and Cam Guthrie both suffered injuries in round three, Cockatoo looks closer to a return after joining in training last week. Daniel Menzel hasn’t trained for four weeks and will need a full week of conditioning before he’s considered for game time. Brandan Parfitt is running and will be pushing his case. Scott Selwood has missed two games after jarring his back and is a watch this week. Groin soreness has sidelined Lachie Fogarty for the past fortnight and he will need to prove his fitness for a recall. – Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Brayden Fiorini  Leg  2-3 weeks
 Pearce Hanley  Dislocated shoulder  8 weeks
 Josh Jaska  Hamstring  1 week
 Jesse Joyce  Quad  1 week
 Jesse Lonergan  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Tom Lynch  Knee  1 week
 Darcy MacPherson  Broken leg  10 weeks
 Tom Nicholls  Shoulder  12 weeks
 Matt Rosa  Hamstring  TBC
 Harrison Wigg  Fractured ankle  Indefinite
 Mackenzie Willis  ACL  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

The bye has come at a good time for the Suns with its long injury list. Co-captain Lynch and under-rated small defender Joyce should be available to play Geelong in round 11, while Fiorini and Lonergan are also an outside chance. – Michael Whiting

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Phil Davis  Concussion  Test
 Matt de Boer  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Brett Deledio  Hamstring  1 week
 Toby Greene  Foot  3 weeks
 Josh Kelly  Groin  Test
 Adam Kennedy  Knee  TBC
 Sam Reid  Hamstring  Test
 Tom Scully  Ankle  7-9 weeks
 Will Setterfield  Knee  Season
 Lachie Tiziani  Knee  Season
 Zac Williams  Achilles  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

Kelly looks certain to return if he gets through training on Wednesday, but Davis seems less likely after not training on Tuesday. Reid’s hamstring scan came back all clear so he’s a chance to face Essendon, while Deledio, de Boer and Greene should all be back in the next month. – Adam Curley

HAWTHORN

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Grant Birchall  Knee (PCL)  4 weeks
 James Cousins  Concussion  Test
 James Frawley  Shoulder  Test
 Kurt Heatherley  Achilles  1 week
 Changkuoth Jiath  Groin  1-2 weeks
 Dylan Moore  Shoulder  1 week
 Cyril Rioli  Medial ligament  3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

The Hawks are confident Frawley and O’Meara will be back – and they’ll be needed against the ladder leaders. No word on Cousins from the Hawks, so a week’s rest might be on the cards. If the Hawks can hang in there till the bye, Rioli and Birchall will be key additions in the second half of the season.  Ashley Browne

MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Dean Kent  Hamstring  3 weeks
 Mitch King  Elbow  Available
 Corey Maynard  Hip  Indefinite
 Pat McKenna  Hamstring  Indefinite
 Aaron vandenBerg  Foot  4-6 weeks
 Sam Weideman  Calf  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

Weideman strained his calf at training last Thursday and, although it was at the minor end of the scale, the Demons are going to take a cautious approach with him and have ruled out him out this week. Kent has started to up the intensity of his training after a hamstring injury that has kept him out since round five. – Ben Guthrie

NORTH MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Declan Mountford  Ankle  Test
 Daniel Nielson  Concussion  Test
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Knee  Season
 Declan Watson  Knee  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

Not much is going wrong at Arden St these days and that extends to a short injury list. Mountford has missed five consecutive games and Nielson two, and they will have to pass a fitness test to play this weekend. Hibberd and Narrier returned from respective knee and hip setbacks in the VFL on Saturday. – Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Matthew Broadbent  Ankle  TBC
 Willem Drew  Heel  Season
 Hamish Hartlett  Knee  Season
 Jarrod Lienert  Knee  6-8 weeks
 Todd Marshall  Personal reasons  Indefinite
Updated: Monday, May 21

Early prognosis

The Power didn’t report any new injuries out of their win against Gold Coast in Shanghai last Saturday. Defender Tom Jonas didn’t finish the game after sustaining a knock to his shin, but isn’t considered in doubt for the club’s round 11 clash with Hawthorn in Launceston on June 2. Veteran forward Lindsay Thomas is available to play for Port Adelaide in the SANFL this weekend after serving a four-game suspension. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Shai Bolton  Corked thigh  Test
 Nathan Drummond  Hamstring  1 week
 Shaun Hampson  Back  TBA
 Dion Prestia  Calf  1 week
 Jack Riewoldt  Bruised lung  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

Dion Prestia will miss a third game with a calf injury. He’s back running and will give it a good test this week but given his recent history with soft tissue injuries and his limited pre-season is expected to sit out again. Jack Riewoldt is likely to play despite a third-quarter collision with West Coast’s Liam Duggan resulting in him coughing up blood as the result of a bruised lung. Alex Rance came off with a cork late in the same game but should be fine to play. Shai Bolton also suffered a “cork on a cork” in the third quarter of the VFL on the weekend, which ended his afternoon early. He’s unlikely to play at any level this week but has been cleared of serious damage. – Jennifer Phelan

ST KILDA

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Blake Acres  Groin  3-5 weeks
 Nathan Brown  Knee  TBC
 Josh Bruce  Back  1-2 weeks

 Paddy McCartin  Concussion  Test
 Dylan Roberton  Heart  Season
 Koby Stevens  Concussion  Indefinite
 Nathan Wright  Ankle  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 22

Early prognosis

Brown suffered a medial ligament injury in his right knee against Collingwood, while a shoulder injury cut Freeman‘s day short in the VFL, but he won’t need surgery. Carlisle should return this week while McCartin is also a chance.  Dinny Navaratnam

 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Toby Pink  Ankle  Test

 Kurt Tippett  Retired
Updated: Thursday, May 17

  1. Yeo has a red line through him in my team, why do they do that prior to selections if he is listed as ‘Test’?
