Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

The Crows are hopeful Seedsman will be available for Sunday’s clash with Greater Western Sydney after scans cleared him of damage to his adductor. Seedsman was a late withdrawal from last Sunday’s loss to Melbourne. Brown will be assessed during the week after he was concussed in the first quarter against the Demons. Sloane has returned to running after a minor strain in the Lisfranc ligament in his foot. – Lee Gaskin

 Jack Payne  Shin  3 weeks

Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

In his second game in the VFL this season, Williamson landed awkwardly on his troublesome back early in last Saturday’s game against Essendon. Post-match scans showed a hot spot on the back. On a positive note, the Blues hope Casboult, Graham, McDaid and Alex Silvagni will be available for selection. – Howard Kotton

 Darcy Moore  Hamstring  TBC
 Brayden Sier  Adductor  TBC
 Josh Smith  Hamstring  TBC
 Travis Varcoe  Hamstring  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

Daniel Wells is available for the clash with Fremantle at the MCG on Sunday and Maynard could also return, but Varcoe appears certain to be sidelined with another hamstring issue and Sier’s bid for an AFL debut has been put on hold. Fasolo will spend a considerable time on the sidelines and the Pies will also be conservative with hamstrung trio ElliottMoore and Smith. The club continues to monitor Kirby’s heart issue. – Ben Collins

ESSENDON

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Patrick Ambrose  Calf  3-4 weeks
 Josh Begley  Knee  Season

Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

The Bombers received a blow with the news Parish will be out for up to two months with his broken thumb, sustained in the VFL. Ambrose will miss at least the next three weeks with a calf strain, but Hurley is expected to return against Richmond this week after his hamstring concern. – Callum Twomey

GEELONG

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Nakia Cockatoo  Knee (PCL)  1-2 weeks
 Charlie Constable  Concussion  1-2 weeks
 Lachie Fogarty  Groin soreness  Test
 Cam Guthrie  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Lachie Henderson  Knee  4-5 weeks
 Daniel Menzel  Groin  TBC
 Esava Ratugolea  Ankle  TBC
 Scott Selwood  Back  Test
 Harry Taylor  Foot  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

Esava Ratugolea‘s surgery on Sunday will see him miss the bulk of the season, however Chris Scott is yet to officially put a line through his name for the season. Harry Taylor‘s foot injury is a concern with its second flare-up this season last Thursday, forcing him to be a late withdrawal against Carlton. It will be an interesting decision with the Cats to play three more matches before the bye. Nakia Cockatoo has rejoined the main group, Cam Guthrie will step up his training this week and Lachie Henderson is eyeing off a return after the bye. Scott Selwood looks a long shot after missing three weeks with a back injury, a trip to the Gold Coast on a two-hour flight against the odds. Lachie Fogarty‘s groin soreness will be monitored this week. After concussion, Charlie Constable is getting loading into his body after missing a large chunk of the pre-season with illness. – Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Brayden Fiorini  Leg  6-8 weeks
 Pearce Hanley  Dislocated shoulder  6-8 weeks
 Josh Jaska  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Jesse Joyce  Quad  Test

 Tom Nicholls  Shoulder  10-12 weeks
 Matt Rosa  Hamstring  4 weeks
 Harrison Wigg  Fractured ankle  Indefinite
 Mackenzie Willis  ACL  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

The big news is that Lynch is back after missing the past three matches with his knee problem. Joyce could also come straight back into the seniors, while Lemmens and Lonergan are likely to play NEAFL. Fiorini has had a setback with his leg injury, having some bone spurs removed, and is now out for an extended period. – Michael Whiting

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Phil Davis  Concussion  Test
 Matt de Boer  Hamstring  1 week
 Brett Deledio  Calf/Hamstring  8-10 weeks
 Toby Greene  Foot  TBC
 Adam Kennedy  Knee  1 week
 Tom Scully  Ankle  8 weeks
 Will Setterfield  Knee  Season
 Lachie Tiziani  Knee  Season
 Zac Williams  Achilles  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

Davis looks certain to return against the Crows on Sunday, while de Boer is due back in round 12. Deledio just can’t stay on the park and his season might be done given his luckless history with his calves, while Greene won’t play before the bye and has no date on his return. – Adam Curley

HAWTHORN

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Grant Birchall  Knee (PCL)  Indefinite
 James Cousins  Concussion  Test
 Daniel Howe  Ankle  Test
 Changkuoth Jiath  Groin  1-2 weeks
 Dylan Moore  Shoulder  1-2 weeks
 Cyril Rioli  Knee  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

The big news is Rioli is due back after the Hawks’ round 12 bye, so Adelaide should start planning for him. Cousins has reportedly recovered well since being a late withdrawal on Sunday, but remains on the injury list. Kurt Heatherley (Achilles) played just over a half in his VFL return and will aim to play close to a full game on Saturday. First-year players Moore and Jiath are back training and also planning to return in the VFL after the bye. – Marc McGowan

MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Dean Kent  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Mitch King  Elbow  Available
 Corey Maynard  Hip  Indefinite
 Tom McDonald  Foot  Test
 Pat McKenna  Hamstring  Indefinite
 Aaron vandenBerg  Foot  4 weeks
 Sam Weideman  Calf  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

McDonald will continue to be monitored as he battles through soreness in his foot that forced him to miss the start of the season. Kent is closing in on the final stage of his rehab after he injured his hamstring against Richmond in round five. Weideman will have to pass a fitness test at training this week. – Ben Guthrie

NORTH MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Sam Durdin  Concussion  Test
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  Test
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Knee  Season
 Declan Watson  Knee  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

Garner, who has a history with hamstring problems, sat out the fourth quarter in the VFL after feeling tightness in his left leg. Durdin‘s AFL return ended prematurely because of a head clash with Dockers giant Aaron Sandilands. – Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Matthew Broadbent  Ankle  TBC
 Willem Drew  Heel  Season
 Hamish Hartlett  Knee  Season
 Peter Ladhams  Knee  TBC
 Jarrod Lienert  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Todd Marshall  Shoulder  TBC
 Trent McKenzie  Quad  4-5 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

In his first game back from compassionate leave, Marshall finished last weekend’s SANFL game on the bench with a shoulder injury. McKenzie also failed to finish the game with a quad injury and will miss at least a month. Broadbent is steadily increasing his workload from a long-term ankle injury. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

 Shai Bolton  Corked quad  Test
 Jason Castagna  Knee  TBC
 Nathan Drummond  Hamstring  Test
 Dylan Grimes  Back  Test
 Shaun Hampson  Back  TBC
 Bachar Houli  Groin  TBC
 Anthony Miles  Back  Test
 Dion Prestia  Calf  1 week
 Jack Riewoldt  Concussion  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

The Tigers’ medical staff will be busy this week with a number of players needing to get through assessment. Riewoldt will face the usual tests after being concussed in the first quarter on Saturday but is considered a good chance to play. Grimes needs to get through training but is likely to return from the back soreness that kept him from the win over the Saints. Castagna is less likely to play after missing with a knee hyperextension that dates back to round eight. He sat out on the weekend and was yet to run early this week, which gives him a bit to work to do before Saturday night. The big casualty from the weekend was Houli, who has been sidelined with a groin “pop”. The injury has been rated as “medium term”, which means he’ll likely join Prestia, who is still struggling with a calf complaint, on the injury until at least after the Tigers’ round 14 bye. – Jennifer Phelan

ST KILDA

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Blake Acres  Groin  4-5 weeks
 Nathan Brown  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Josh Bruce  Back  1 week
 Jake Carlisle  Suspension  TBC

 Sam Gilbert  Thumb  4-5 weeks
 Ben Long  Foot  8-10 weeks
 Dylan Roberton  Heart  Season
 Koby Stevens  Concussion  Season
 Mav Weller  Concussion  Available
 Brandon White  Thigh  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

Carlisle is going to the Tribunal on Tuesday night to challenge his two-match ban for striking Richmond forward Jack Riewoldt. Weller trained on Tuesday and is in the selection frame to face West Coast at Optus Stadium on Saturday night. White suffered a badly corked right thigh last week against the Tigers. David Armitage is playing through hamstring tendinitis.  Dinny Navaratnam

SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 James Bell  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Jordan Dawson  Quad  Test
 Alex Johnson  Groin  Test
 Lewis Melican  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Callum Mills  Foot  Season
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Sam Reid  Quad  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

 Early prognosis

Mills had surgery on Monday to repair a clean break in the outside of his right foot and won’t play again this year. Melican was close to returning to the field but injured his other hamstring at training last week, and he looks like returning after the club’s round 14 bye, along with Reid. – Adam Curley

WEST COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Hamish Brayshaw  Knee  2 weeks
 Eric Mackenzie  Toe  2-3 weeks
 Chris Masten  Hamstring  Test
 Liam Ryan  Ankle  3 weeks
 Will Schofield  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Luke Shuey  Hamstring  Test
 Daniel Venables  Ankle  4-5 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

Shuey trained fully on Tuesday and is expected to be available for Saturday night’s clash with St Kilda, but it remains to be seen if he will be picked ahead of the bye. Ryan was flying on the track and could be in the mix to face Sydney after the bye after hurting his ankle in round three. Elliot Yeo trained lightly on Tuesday, showing no ill-effects of his sore knee, and Nic Naitanui was on the track despite speculation about back soreness, but Masten was restricted to running laps with a bandage on his hamstring. Venables could be back training with the group next week. – Travis King

 Aaron Naughton  Ankle  Test
 Liam Picken  Concussion  Indefinite
 Jack Redpath  Knee  8-9 weeks
 Clay Smith  Knee  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 29

Early prognosis

The Dogs will be sweating on the fitness of Cordy and Naughton for Saturday’s clash with Melbourne at Etihad Stadium. Naughton (ankle) is back in full training, while Cordy’s concussion will be monitored throughout the week. – Ryan Davidson

  1. Anyone interested in Mutch:

    Young midfielder Kobe Mutch failed to take the field on the weekend and appears likely to miss again after failing to overcome a series of niggling headaches.

    “Kobe has had intermittent headaches over the last week and a half. There is no evidence of concussion, but we’d like to be conservative, because sometimes it’s difficult to work out exactly why these headaches are coming,” Crow said.

    “Until they resolve completely for an extended period, we’re going to keep him out of contact training and then also out of matches.

    “So we’ll be watching him closely this week as to whether or not he becomes available for the weekend.”

  2. L Ryan and Sam Reid with scheduled post-bye returns peak a little interest as possible downgrade/sideways targets.
    Maybe

    1. Haha I’ve just had issues every week since his injury so Liam Ryan is still sitting at F8 for me. If he can cover both or even just R14 that would be great!

    1. No worries Thommo.

      Not really Supercoach relevant, but Bailey Dale (WBD) is out for 4-6 weeks with a stress reaction in his foot. The news came through after I posted this list.
