Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ciaran Byrne Knee Test
Liam Jones Ankle Test
Sam Rowe Knee Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Byrne is expected to make his much-anticipated return in the VFL against Coburg this Saturday. The Irishman, who has been sidelined since rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in round 15 last season, has been in full training for about three weeks. He will be on limited game time when he resumes and build up gradually. Jones, who injured his left ankle late in the Northern Blues’ win over Sandringham on May 20, should also be available. – Howard Kotton

Ben Reid Quad 1-2 weeks
Ben Sinclair* Hamstring 3-4 weeks
Travis Varcoe Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Daniel Wells Calf TBC
Jesse White Hamstring Test
Rupert Wills Calf Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Elliott, Wells and Goldsack appear set to for stints on the sidelines after suffering injuries in the courageous win against Fremantle. Fasolo could return after battling a mental health issue, as could Aish, while Reid and Varcoe are expected to be available after the Pies’ round 13 bye. Sinclair is still eyeing a return in the second half of the year. – Ben Collins

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Patrick Ambrose Quad 6 weeks
Mitch Brown Ankle 2-3 weeks
Jayden Laverde* Ankle 4 weeks
Darcy Parish Calf 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

The Dons suffered a blow when Ambrose re-injured his quad at training last week. The defender will be out for another six weeks having not played since the Bombers’ win over Collingwood on Anzac Day, with his absence felt in the Essendon backline. Parish will miss one more week with a minor calf strain but should be back after the Bombers’ round 13 bye, while James Kelly is expected to be available for Saturday night’s clash with Port Adelaide. – Callum Twomey

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Apeness Knee Season
Hayden Ballantyne Hamstring Test
Harley Balic Personal leave Indefinite
Harley Bennell Calf 4 weeks
Zac Clarke* Knee TBC
Alex Pearce Leg TBC
Aaron Sandilands Hamstring Test
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Ballantyne is on schedule to return, most likely for Peel, from his latest hamstring setback. If he plays in the Thunder’s clash with South Fremantle on Saturday it will have been three weeks since he hurt his hamstring in his comeback game from tendon surgery. Bennell is still about a month away from a long-awaited return to the field. The plan was for him to be available within the next fortnight. Star ruckman Sandilands is a test for the trip to Brisbane, but Ed Langdon isn’t on the injury list despite struggling coming back from a sore knee last round. Travis King

Cory Gregson* Foot TBC
Jack Henry Appendix Test
Timm House Collarbone 6-8 weeks
Lincoln McCarthy Groin 4-6 weeks
Brandan Parfitt* Hamstring 4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

The Cats were unscathed after the win against Adelaide however the players were keen for the break. Cowan is seeing specialists to determine the best action for his troublesome Achilles while Gregson remains a long-term prospect. Bews was unable to move off the straight line due to his ankle injury and was ruled out after the final training session for the week. He hopes the bye will give him enough time to be available for selection. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Callum Ah Chee Back Test
Sam Day Hip Season
Jarrod Harbrow Club suspension TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

About as healthy as the Suns’ list has looked all season, with Michael Rischitelli to return in the NEAFL after 11 months out with a ruptured ACL. Ah Chee should play in the same game after missing three matches with a back problem. Harbrow has been suspended for at least one week by the club after he was caught drink driving. – Michael Whiting

Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Griffen suffered a disappointing setback at training on Saturday and has already had surgery on his troublesome left ankle.

Ben Stratton Bone bruising (knee) 2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Birchall is back doing ball work and will return for Hawthorn’s trip to Adelaide to play the Crows straight after the bye. Stratton is running again and should be back within a week or two after the bye period. Fitzpatrick is a suffering lingering effects from a concussion for the second straight year and won’t play for at least the next two weeks. Fellow ruckman Ceglar will be back playing footy, at least at VFL level towards the end of the season. – Ashley Browne

Jesse Hogan Cancer Indefinite
Pat McKenna Hamstring 10-12 weeks
Joel Smith Shoulder 3-4 weeks
Jake Spencer Shoulder Test
Aaron vandenBerg* Heel Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Hogan is extremely unlikely to play against Collingwood on Queen’s Birthday and could still be a couple of weeks away from a return. However, the Demons expect Spencer to play. Fellow ruckman Gawn is still a fortnight away from a return, while rookie defender Smith is making solid progress in his rehab from a shoulder injury. VandenBerg is having season-ending heel surgery in Sydney on Tuesday.Ben Guthrie

Oscar Junker Broken tibia 1-2 weeks
Ben McKay Groin/hip 1-2 weeks
Jy Simpkin AC joint 3 weeks
Lindsay Thomas Suspended Available round 13
Corey Wagner Ankle 2-4 weeks
Sam Wright Ankle 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Taylor Garner (leg), Nathan Hrovat (calf) and Marley Williams (hip) sustained various ailments in the loss to Richmond, but none seems serious, especially with North having the week off. It will be interesting to see whether Wright, after multiple setbacks, can make his belated season debut in the VFL for Werribee next week. Thomas will be eligible to return next week, but will almost certainly resume where he left off: in the VFL. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Karl Amon Knee 3-4 weeks
Cameron Hewett Groin Test
Dan Houston Hip Test
Chad Wingard Calf Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Power coach Ken Hinkley is hopeful Wingard will return for Saturday night’s game with Essendon at Etihad Stadium. Amon suffered a fractured patella in the two-point loss to Geelong and has been ruled out for up to a month. – Lee Gaskin

Todd Elton Shoulder TBC
Jack Graham* Ankle 1-2 weeks
Ben Griffiths Concussion Indefinite
Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Callum Moore Ankle 4-5 weeks
Nick Vlastuin Shoulder Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Elton did not require surgery on his dislocated right shoulder, but the Tiger will need a period of rest and rehab. Moore, who also escaped surgery for an ankle sprain, will be moving out of a moonboot to start building up to weight-bearing rehab. Vlastuin is expected to return after the bye. Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin 6-7 weeks
Ed Phillips Ankle 3 weeks
Bailey Rice Ankle Test
Nick Riewoldt Knee 1 week
Jimmy Webster Hand Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Riewoldt is expected back for next week’s game against North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium. Bone bruising in his troublesome left knee is keeping him sidelined. Webster could make the trip to Adelaide after suffering a broken right hand against Carlton and will be tested at the main session on Wednesday. Armitage will start running in a couple of weeks.

Injury

Estimated Return

Kieren Jack Hip Test
Alex Johnson* Knee Indefinite
Jake Lloyd Concussion Test
Jarrad McVeigh Hamstring Test
Sam Naismith Knee Test
Sam Reid Concussion Test
Daniel Robinson Fractured jaw 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Jack and Naismith are available to take on the Bulldogs on Thursday night if they can get through training on Tuesday and pull up well, but McVeigh looks unlikely. Given McVeigh’s soft tissue history he won’t be risked, while Lloyd and Reid are right to go after copping head knocks against Hawthorn before the bye. – Adam Curley

Injury

Estimated Return

Matthew Allen Foot 4 weeks
Josh Kennedy Calf 2 weeks
Nic Naitanui* Knee Late 2017 season
Willie Rioli Hamstring TBC
Simon Tunbridge Knee 2 weeks
Jake Waterman Foot 5-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 6

Early prognosis

Dual Coleman medallist Kennedy is aiming for a comeback in the Eagles’ clash against Geelong next Thursday after the bye, while Sharrod Wellingham should also be available after missing the past two games with an ankle issue. Scott Lycett has been reinstated from the long-term injury list and might also be in the mix after successfully returning from shoulder surgery for East Perth on Monday. Rioli’s electric display for the Royals was over at half-time due to tightness in his “good” hamstring during his second game back from hamstring surgery, and a club injury update will be released on Wednesday.Travis King
