Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Luke Brown Fractured cheekbone 1-3 weeks
Ben Davis* Foot Indefinite
Cam Ellis-Yolmen* Knee Season
Curtly Hampton* Ankle 9-11 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

With the Crows having the bye this weekend, defender Brown could be available to return for their Thursday night clash with Hawthorn at Adelaide Oval in round 14. Mitch McGovern (hamstring) and Paul Seedsman (groin) made successful returns from long-term injuries in the SANFL, albeit while having their game-time managed. – Lee Gaskin 

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Allen Christensen Shoulder Season
Mitch Robinson Foot Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

All good news for the Lions, with just Christensen and Robinson on the injured list. Claye Beams returned from a hamstring injury in the NEAFL at the weekend and got through strongly. – Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Alex Silvagni Knee 3-4 weeks
Sam Rowe* Knee Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

The Blues will need to find a replacement for Silvagni when they take on Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium this Saturday night. The rugged defender came off early in the first quarter against Greater Western Sydney on Sunday and scans on Monday revealed bone bruising to his left knee, which should keep him out for 3-4 weeks. – Howard Kotton

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Jamie Elliott Ankle Test
Tyson Goldsack Shoulder Test
Adam Oxley Groin/hip 6 weeks
Ben Reid Quad Test
Ben Sinclair* Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Travis Varcoe Hamstring Test
Daniel Wells Calf 3-5 weeks
Jesse White Hamstring Test
Rupert Wills Calf Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

After their bye, the Pies could welcome back quality quartet Elliott, Reid, Goldsack and Varcoe for their round 14 encounter with Port Adelaide at the MCG. Wells is several weeks away with his latest calf injury, while Sinclair is also eyeing a return in the second half of the year. – Ben Collins

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Patrick Ambrose Quad 5-6 weeks
Mitch Brown Ankle 1-2 weeks
Jayden Laverde* Ankle 2-3 weeks
Darcy Parish Calf Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

The Bombers have the bye this week, and are hopeful of regaining young midfielder Parish for their round 14 clash with Sydney after missing him the past two weeks with his minor calf strain. Brown is edging closer as he recovers from an ankle injury, as is Laverde, who hasn’t played since the JLT Community Series. – 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
Ed Langdon Knee TBC
Alex Pearce Leg TBC
Aaron Sandilands Hamstring 1 week
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBC
Updated: Thursday, June 8

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 will miss the trip to Brisbane, while Langdon will also remain in Perth as he battles a knee problem. Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Josh Cowan Achilles TBC
Cory Gregson* Foot TBC
Tom Hawkins Suspended Round 14
Timm House Collarbone Test
Lincoln McCarthy Groin 4 weeks
Brandan Parfitt* Hamstring 4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

The senior list is mostly healthy although the Cats are still determining the best course of action for long-term injured pair Cowan and Gregson with a decision expected soon. Parfitt is making good progress after injuring his hamstring in round six but the Cats will be cautious, while the little known House is an outside chance to play VFL this week after making a remarkable recovery from a collarbone injury. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Callum Ah Chee Back Test
Sam Day Hip Season
Jarrod Harbrow Club suspension 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

This is the best the Suns’ injury list has looked in three years. Ah Chee was selected to play last week but was withdrawn a day before the game. He is expected to be fine this week, but might be more likely to return through the NEAFL– Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matt Buntine Knee Season
Stephen Coniglio Ankle 7 weeks
Phil Davis Ankle Test
Brett Deledio Calf TBC
Ryan Griffen Ankle 11 weeks
Nick Haynes Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Jacob Hopper Finger 1-2 weeks
Adam Kennedy Knee Season
Rory Lobb Groin Test
Will Setterfield Ankle 1-2 weeks
Devon Smith Knee 3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

Davis rolled his ankle against the Blues but should be fit to play after the bye, while Lobb will also be a chance to face the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba. Haynes, Hopper and Setterfield are scheduled to resume in round 14 if they can get through the next couple of weeks on the track, but after lengthy lay-offs they will probably run out in the NEAFL. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Grant Birchall Knee Test
Luke Breust Illness Available
Jonathon Ceglar* ACL Indefinite
Jack Fitzpatrick Concussion Indefinite
James Frawley Turf toe 4 weeks
Josh Gibson Groin TBC
Luke Hodge Groin Test
Kieran Lovell Shoulder Indefinite
Jaeger O’Meara Knee Indefinite
Jonathan O’Rourke Hamstring 3-5 weeks
Cyril Rioli PCL 4-6 weeks
Ben Stratton Bone bruising (knee) 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

If none of the above are available for the trip to Adelaide after the bye, the Hawks might as well bring Kelvin Moore and Chris Langford out of retirement because the backline has been stripped bare. But the likelihood is that Birchall returns for just his fourth game of the year while the suspicion here is that Hodge was managed last weekend against Gold Coast so that he plays his 300th game later this season at the MCG rather than Launceston as scheduled. His return, along with that of Breust and Birchall should ensure that the Hawks take a more competitive team to play the Crows in what shapes as a difficult evening in any event. Gibson is one to watch because if his groin complaint is serious enough, then we might get one last cameo appearance before the end of the season, perhaps ever. – Ashley Browne

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Angus Brayshaw Concussion Indefinite
Lochie Filipovic Hip flexor 2 weeks
Colin Garland* Knee Season
Max Gawn Hamstring Test
Jesse Hogan Testicular cancer 4-6 weeks
Pat McKenna Hamstring 6-8 weeks
Joel Smith Shoulder 2 weeks
Tim Smith Navicular bone Season
Aaron vandenBerg* Heel Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

 

Early prognosis

All eyes will be on Gawn on the training track this week as he bids to prove his fitness for the game against the Dogs. The Demons are hopeful he will be right to play, but three six-day breaks over the coming weeks will factor into the club’s thinking. Hogan is still at least a month away from a return, the Demons revealed on Tuesday. – Ben Guthrie

Paul Ahern* Knee Season
Ben Jacobs Lower leg 2 weeks
Oscar Junker Broken tibia TBC
Ben McKay Groin/hip 2 weeks
Jy Simpkin AC joint 2-3 weeks
Ed Vickers-Willis PCL 6-8 weeks
Corey Wagner Ankle 1-2 weeks
Sam Wright Foot 2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

Young defender Vickers-Willis will be missing for up to eight weeks after suffering a knee injury against Richmond before the bye. That blow comes on top of Jacobs and Wright progressing slower than hoped with their respective ailments. Neither player has been sighted at AFL level this year. Veteran forward Lindsay Thomas is available after suspension, but will almost certainly resume in the VFL. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Karl Amon Knee 2-3 weeks
Aidyn Johnson Hip Test
Angus Monfries Calf TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

Experienced forward Monfries injured his calf in the SANFL last Sunday. He will have scans, but is expected to miss 1-2 weeks. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Reece Conca* Foot Indefinite
Nathan Drummond* Knee Season
Todd Elton Shoulder TBC
Jack Graham* Ankle Test
Ben Griffiths Concussion Indefinite
Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Callum Moore Ankle 4 weeks
Nick Vlastuin Shoulder Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

Vlastuin is likely to be held back one more week, but the Tigers are planning to bring draftee Graham off the long-term injury list to play limited VFL minutes if he gets through training this week. Elton’s shoulder injury does not require surgery but the Tigers are yet to specify a return date for the tall forward. – Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin 4-6 weeks
Jake Carlisle Hamstring Test
Ed Phillips Ankle 2 weeks
Nick Riewoldt Knee Test
Mav Weller Ankle Test
Nathan Wright Shoulder  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

 Early prognosis

Riewoldt should be back from bone bruising in his left knee while Carlisle copped a heavy corkie against Adelaide but is expected to face North Melbourne on Friday night at Etihad Stadium. Weller rolled his right ankle for the third time this season against the Crows but came back on and played well, so he should be right. Tough nut Wright copped a shoulder knock against the Crows and will need to prove his fitness. Dinny Navaratnam

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Darcy Cameron Shoulder Season
Harry Cunningham Foot 1-2 weeks
Alex Johnson* Knee Indefinite
Jarrad McVeigh Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Daniel Robinson Fractured jaw 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

McVeigh, Cunningham and Robinson are likely to ramp up their training with the hope of returning in the next fortnight, but Cameron was injured in the Swans’ NEAFL game on Saturday and will have surgery on his right shoulder next week, ruling him out for the rest of the year. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matthew Allen Foot 1-2 weeks
Josh Kennedy Calf 1-2 weeks
Nic Naitanui* Knee Late 2017 season
Willie Rioli Hamstring 5 weeks
Simon Tunbridge Knee 2-3 weeks
Jake Waterman Foot 6 weeks
Sharrod Wellingham Ankle Test
Updated: Thursday, June 8

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 after straining his “good” hamstring during his second game back from hamstring surgery. – Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Marcus Adams Foot 6-8 weeks
Tom Boyd Back Test
Stewart Crameri Hip Season
Josh Dunkley Shoulder 8-9 weeks
Fergus Greene Wrist 6-8 weeks
Dale Morris Ankle Test
Robert Murphy Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Josh Prudden Hamstring Test
Clay Smith Calf Test
Roarke Smith Knee Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

Premiership stars Boyd, Morris and Smith are a chance to return from injury for Sunday’s clash with Melbourne at Etihad Stadium. The loss of Adams to a foot injury is a significant blow to the premiers.Ryan Davidson

  1. For those who missed it, some of Clarkson’s comments on O’Meara were discussed on Talking Footy last night. Reading between the lines, it sounds like O’Meara’s knee might be permanently stuffed.

    1. And nobody is surprised, are they Jack?

      That trade could go down as one of the worst in history. Closely followed by the Sylvia and Bennell trades!
