Injury List Rd11

Written by Schwarzwalder on May 28 2019

ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Matt Crouch  Hip/abdominal  Test
 Tom Doedee  Knee  Season
 Sam Jacobs  Knee  Test
 Tom Lynch  Hamstring  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Crouch and Lynch will have to complete main training on Thursday to be considered for Saturday night’s encounter with Melbourne in Darwin. Crouch has missed the past two games with a small muscle tear in the abdominal area near his hip, while Lynch had a low-grade hamstring strain that forced him to miss last week’s 12-point loss to West Coast. Jacobs will also be assessed this week to see if he will play his first game since round two. The experienced ruckman is likely to return through the SANFL having had surgery to his right knee in April. – Lee Gaskin

BRISBANE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Marcus Adams  Knee  4 weeks
 Zac Bailey  Hamstring  2-4 weeks
 Jarrod Berry  Knee  6-8 weeks
 Ely Smith  Foot  5 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Berry will have surgery on his knee on Wednesday to remove a Baker’s cyst. Bailey has progressed a fraction quicker than expected and is back running, however, recovering from his second hamstring tear of the season, the Lions will be cautious. – Michael Whiting 

CARLTON

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 David Cuningham  Soreness  Test
 Tom De Koning  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Sam Docherty  Knee  Indefinite
 Liam Jones  Concussion  1 week
 Marc Murphy  Fractured ribs  2-3 weeks
 Sam Petrevski-Seton  Hamstring  Test
 Jarrod Pickett  Knee  Indefinite
 Lachie Plowman  Cheekbone  Test
 Kade Simpson  Hamstring  Test
 Tom Williamson  Back  1 week
 Updated: Tuesday, May 21

Early prognosis

The Blues expect to regain defensive duo Simpson and Plowman for this week’s clash with the Saints, but Jones will miss a third-straight match due to concussion. Murphy will miss at least the next fortnight having suffered fractured ribs against the Giants, while Petrevski-Seton and Cuningham will undergo fitness tests later this week due to tightness and soreness respectively. – Riley Beveridge

COLLINGWOOD

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Taylor Adams  Groin  2-3 weeks
 Flynn Appleby  Ankle  Test
 Tyler Brown  Shoulder  Test
 Mason Cox  Ankle  Test
 Jordan De Goey  Shin  Test
 Lynden Dunn  Knee  Season
 Jamie Elliott  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Will Kelly  Leg  6-10 weeks
 Tom Langdon  Knee  4-5 weeks
 Darcy Moore  Ankle  Test
 Nathan Murphy  Ankle  Indefinite
 Sam Murray  Provisional ASADA suspension  TBC
 Anton Tohill  Quad  Test
 Travis Varcoe  Suspension  Available
 Daniel Wells  Knee  13 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Wells has again been cruelled by a long-term injury, and there’s a possibility Langdon could also be set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines. However, the Pies are hopeful they will regain stars De Goey, Cox and Moore for the clash with Fremantle at the MCG on Saturday. They will also have the option of bringing back Varcoe, but will be without Adams and Elliott for at least another fortnight. Tyler Brown, Appleby and Tohill are nearing returns, but Murphy’s recovery has been slow and Kelly suffered a hamstring tendon injury in the VFL. The season seems over for veteran Dunn after a second anterior cruciate ligament rupture in nine months. – Ben Collins

ESSENDON

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Mitch Brown  Wrist  Test
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Season
 Sam Draper  Knee  Season
 Orazio Fantasia  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Kobe Mutch  Hamstring  3-5 weeks
 Dylan Shiel  Hamstring  Test
 Devon Smith  Knee  Season
 James Stewart  Groin  1-2 weeks
 Jake Stringer  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Stringer has added to the Bombers’ injury woes, and while Shiel has not yet been ruled out of playing against Carlton on Sunday, Essendon will play that conservatively with the star midfielder. Fantasia is due back after the Bombers’ round 12 bye and his return can’t come quick enough.  Callum Twomey

FREMANTLE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Hayden Ballantyne  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Harley Bennell  Calf  Test
 Sean Darcy  Ankle  4-6 weeks
 Stephen Hill  Quad  3 weeks
 Shane Kersten  Foot  TBC
 Aaron Sandilands  Calf  TBC
 Sam Sturt  Concussion  3 weeks
 Matt Taberber  Foot  8 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 21

Early prognosis

Taberner going down on the same weekend as Darcy thins the big man stocks, with Sandilands still yet to have a timeframe to return. Bennell should be back in his latest bid to save his career for Peel against West Perth this Saturday, provided he gets through training. – Travis King

GEELONG

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Tom Atkins  Hip flexor  Test
 Nakia Cockatoo  Knee  Indefinite
 Jordan Cunico  Ankle  6-8 weeks

 Ben Jarvis  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Sam Menegola  Knee  3-4 weeks
 Quinton Narkle  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Stefan Okunbor  Groin  1-2 weeks
 Rhys Stanley  Adductor  Test
 Updated: Wednesday, May 22

Early prognosis

Dangerfield has ditched the crutches after spraining his ankle in the win over the Western Bulldogs. The superstar will need to impress at Wednesday’s main training to put his name up for selection, along with Atkins and Stanley who missed last week. Menegola was due to go under the knife on Tuesday to clean out cartilage in his knee. Cockatoo continues to build his running base, while Cunico‘s rehabilitation has progressed to being focusing on mobility. Jarvis missed Sunday’s VFL win with a calf strain, while Okunbor has been having groin trouble in recent times. Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Injury

Estimated Return

 Ben Ainsworth  Foot  6 weeks
 Sam Collins  Hip  5 weeks

 Touk Miller  Heel  Test
 Izak Rankine  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Brad Scheer  Hand  2-4 weeks
 Rory Thompson  Knee  Season
 Harrison Wigg  Knee  Season
 Aaron Young  Knee  3 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Bad news for Ainsworth who required surgery on the foot he injured against Geelong on Saturday night. Miller is still a week-to-week proposition, but has already missed two, while Hanley still sounds like he’s a few weeks away. – Michael Whiting

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Jye Caldwell  Calf  4 weeks
 Stephen Coniglio  Corked thigh  Test
 Aidan Corr  Calf  4 weeks
 Jonathon Patton  Knee  TBC
 Tommy Sheridan  Calf  3 weeks
 Zac Sproule  Knee  6-8 weeks
 Callan Ward  Knee  Season
 Zac Williams  Hamstring  1 week
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Coniglio only has a six-day break to get over his corked thigh but should be fine to face Gold Coast, while Williams is a chance to face Adelaide next week. Corr looked close to being ready to resume from an ankle issue last week but suffered another setback with his calf, while Caldwell and Sproule were both injured in the NEAFL. – Adam Curley

HAWTHORN

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Grant Birchall  Calf/knee  Indefinite
 James Frawley  Hamstring  Test
 Mitch Lewis  Concussion  Test
 Ben McEvoy  Ankle  4-6 weeks
 Darren Minchington  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Tom Mitchell  Broken leg  Indefinite
 Tim Mohr  Dislocated knee/ACL  Season
 Ryan Schoenmakers  Calf  Test
 Isaac Smith  Foot  Test
 Chad Wingard  Hamstring  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, May 21

Early prognosis

McEvoy is the major news here. His right ankle got caught under him in a Nathan Broad tackle and he tried to return in the second quarter, but was done for the day by half-time. McEvoy sustained a syndesmosis sprain and could be out for a significant time. Ex-Saint Minchington has suffered a second hamstring setback this year. Frawley, Smith and Wingard are all a chance to return against Port Adelaide on Saturday. The Hawks completed only a light training session on Tuesday, but Wingard moved well and remained on the ground for longer than most of his teammates to complete extra goalkicking practice. – Marc McGowan

MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Michael Hibberd  Collarbone  Test
 Neville Jetta  Knee  6-8 weeks
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Test

 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
 Christian Salem  Concussion  Test
 Joel Smith  Groin  3-5 weeks
 Aaron vandenBerg  Ankle  3-5 weeks
 Guy Walker  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Much better news on the injury front this week, with a swag of players either available or tests. Jake Lever is likely to spend another week in the VFL after rolling an ankle. Coach Simon Goodwin said on Sunday Hibberd, Salem, Neal-Bullen, May and Kolodjashnij should be available for selection this week. Lewis (ankle) successfully returned through the VFL last week but has been given a one-match suspension for striking. – Sarah Black.

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Paul Ahern  Knee  Test  Luke Davies-Uniacke  Shoulder  Test  Majak Daw  Pelvis/hips  Indefinite  Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  Indefinite  Tom McKenzie   Back  TBC  Tom Murphy  Ankle  Test  Dom Tyson  Calf  2-3 weeks  Ed Vickers-Willis  Knee  Season  Will Walker  PCL  Indefinite  Tom Wilkinson  Ankle  5-7 weeks  Sam Wright  Ankle  2-3 weeks  Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Ahern and Davies-Uniacke are the fresh ones on the list and will have to pass fitness tests after setbacks in the VFL and AFL, respectively. The Roos are taking it cautiously with Tyson‘s calf issue, particularly given he has already had a recurrence this season, and he remains at least a fortnight off.Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Ryan Burton  Hamstring  Test
 Charlie Dixon  Leg  1-2 weeks
 Brad Ebert  Concussion  2-3 weeks
 Sam Hayes  Glandular fever  2-3 weeks
 Trent McKenzie  Hamstring  Test
 Jake Patmore  Knee  Season
 Tom Rockliff  Hamstring  Test
 Jack Watts  Leg  Indefinite
 Ollie Wines  Leg  2-3 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Rockliff will make the trip to China for the Power’s game against St Kilda in Shanghai on Sunday after scans on a hamstring injury came back positive. However, he didn’t train with the main group on Tuesday. Burton moved freely at training on Tuesday after just missing out on returning last week. Ruckman Scott Lycett has been cleared to return from an adductor injury, while Dixon is expected back after the bye. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

Injury

Estimated Return

 Trent Cotchin  Hamstring  Test

 Marlion Pickett  Finger  8-10 weeks
 Alex Rance  Knee  Season
 Jack Riewoldt  PCL  4-6 weeks
 Jack Ross  Ankle  5-7 weeks
 Jayden Short  Elbow  4-5 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Given the six-day turnaround between games, Richmond has given Lambert another week off to recover from Achilles soreness. Skipper Cotchin is set to make his long-awaited return after initially injuring his hamstring in round three. Pickett joined the Tigers in the NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft and went straight to the injury list after breaking his finger playing for WAFL side South Fremantle. More details have emerged about draftee English’s injury; he suffered a broken scapula (shoulder blade) at training. – Sarah Black

 Jarrad McVeigh  Quad  Test
 Sam Naismith  Knee  TBC
 Nick Smith  Hamstring  TBC
 Durak Tucker  Knee  Indefinite
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

 Early prognosis

Kennedy won’t be back until after the club’s round 13 bye at the earliest with his medial ligament strain. In better news, McVeigh is back in full training and in line to return against Geelong on Saturday, while Hewett is expected to be fine to face the Cats after copping a head knock against Collingwood last week. – Adam Curley

 Daniel Venables  Concussion  TBC
 Francis Watson  Shoulder  2 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 21

Early prognosis

There will be a minimum of three changes – Hickey, Jetta and Venables – from the Melbourne triumph, and Schofield should be back after missing due to rib soreness. Barrass is back running in the gym, however his return to play date remains around the two-month mark, despite missing five games already. Edwards will be in a moon boot for a month after becoming the latest Eagle to succumb to foot stress fractures. – Travis King

 Ben Cavarra  Hamstring  1 week
 Hayden Crozier  Toe  2-3 weeks
 Taylor Duryea  Hip  2-3 weeks
 Dale Morris  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Mitch Wallis  Ankle  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, May 28

Early prognosis

Crozier and Wallis were the casualties against North Melbourne in round 10, suffering a toe and ankle injury respectively. The Bulldogs are in good shape for the most part and have no long-term concerns. Paul Bastin

    1. Argh, Crouch. Hoping he gets up, starting to really hurt having a midfield premo on the bench.

    2. doubt he’ll play , its not finals ,
      if rocky does play , with his injury history , he will probably be managed ,
      maybe play fwd with limited TOG ,
      @ the start of the season , port would have penciled him in for a couple of weeks off around the byes period , regardless of an injury ,
      enjoy the moo shoo big fella

    1. Don’t think so, Bryson. Talking Footy reported last night that he now is having hamstring issues. Because he’s been such an asset this year I think they’ll take it really conservatively with him.

          1. Was leaning towards Ryan, but might go all in and grab J Kelly while I can still get him.
            Brought Lloyd in last week.
            Can get him with Moore and Drew
            That will have me at full premo mids (inc Dunkley atm) and only having to field 1 rookie in Fwds.
            Have good cover for R12 & R13. Need to focus the def line for R14

  1. Crouch is an absolute killer atm. They said he was a chance to play the week after he got injured, now it’s dragged out to a two, possibly a three weeker. Not going near the bloke again. Burned me last season and I clearly didn’t learn from my mistakes this season.

  3. Hard for the Roos to shop for premo players , when they’re HQ is a rusty shed , with a paint job
    Not to mention the bugger all supporters , that don’t even bother turning up to games , even when they’re winning
    I like the Roos , but honestly , do they really have a long term future as an AFL club if they stay @ Arden st ?
    Maybe as a VFL club or in Tassie they could grow

    1. Dear PJ
      You obviously haven’t been anywhere near Arden Street the last few years.
      Gone are the ‘rusty sheds with a paint job’ and replaced with the same sort of facilities that you will currently find at any of the other Victorian Clubs.
      We may have less supporters than most clubs but you don’t hear about ours fighting, spitting, brawling and so on with other supporters
      I would encourage you to visit the North Melbourne website and view the redevelopement of not only the ground but the Arden Street precinct in full so that once done our facilities will be the equal of the interstate clubs as well.
      Finally, if you are concerned regarding North’s long term viability considering we are now in the best financial position in the last decade (said by Ben Buckley just this week), so since we have got thru the tough times we won’t be going anywhere.
