Liam Sumner Adductor Test
Tom Williamson Back 2 weeks

Early prognosis

Carlton has lost another defender, with teenager Williamson likely to be sidelined for the next two matches. Williamson pulled up sore with extensive bruising to his back after copping a heavy knock during the Blues’ fighting win over the Suns at Metricon Stadium last Saturday night. Forward Sumner, who missed the Suns’ game after injuring his left adductor at training last week, has made good progress and faces a test for this weekend. Ruckmen Phillips (ankle) and Gorringe (adductor), injured for the Northern Blues against Werribee last Saturday, will also miss this weekend. In better news, defender Silvagni is ahead of schedule after injuring his left knee against Greater Western Sydney in round 12. – Howard Kotton

Daniel Wells Calf 2-3 weeks
Rupert Wills Calf Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Patrick Ambrose Quad 4-5 weeks
Mitch Brown Ankle Test
Jayden Laverde* Ankle 1-2 weeks
Darcy Parish Calf Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

The Bombers are hopeful Parish will be available this week against Sydney after missing two games (plus a bye) with a calf injury. Brown is edging closer to a return as well after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury, while Laverde is also pushing towards his first game of the season after a pre-season ankle injury. – Callum Twomey

Harley Balic Personal leave Indefinite
Harley Bennell Calf 3-4 weeks
Zac Clarke* Knee TBC
Brady Grey Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Ed Langdon Knee Test
Alex Pearce Leg TBC
Aaron Sandilands Hamstring Test
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 13

Early prognosis

Brady Grey’s hamstring strain in the loss to the Lions is at the lower end of the scale, in one positive to come from a dismal performance, while the Dockers would expect to get Ed Langdon and Aaron Sandilands back after the bye. Goalsneak Hayden Ballantyne should also make his second attempt at a comeback – probably with Peel although Grey’s injury has opened the door – after the weekend offTravis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Nakia Cockatoo Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Josh Cowan Achilles Season
Cory Gregson* Foot Season
Lincoln McCarthy Groin Season
Mark O’Connor Ankle Test
Brandan Parfitt* Hamstring 2-4 weeks
Tom Ruggles Collarbone 6 weeks
Scott Selwood Hamstring Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

Selwood is listed as a test however he is still long odds of playing against the Dockers. The 10-day break helps his chances but no risk will be taken. Cockatoo’s recent hamstring problems have seen the Cats one man down early in two games so he might come back via the VFL next time while Ruggles’ injury reduces their depth. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Barlow Leg Season
Sam Day Hip Season
Matt Rosa Suspension Round 15
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

Barlow had surgery on his fractured left leg on Sunday and will miss the rest of the season. He was in the midst of an excellent year for the Suns after heading east from Fremantle. Rosa’s absence for one week due to suspension also takes experience away the Suns can ill-afford– Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matt Buntine Knee Season
Stephen Coniglio Ankle 4-5 weeks
Brett Deledio Calf TBC

Rory Lobb Groin Test
Will Setterfield Ankle Test
Devon Smith Knee 2 weeks
Jake Stein Groin 1-2 weeks
Lachlan Tiziani Knee 2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

Kelly is a massive chance to miss this week’s game against the Lions after his setback at training on Saturday, with Hopper another big casualty to come out of that session on the Giants’ bye weekend. Haynes and Setterfield are likely to play NEAFL as they make their way back from long-term spells. – Adam Curley

Player

Jaeger O’Meara Knee Indefinite
Jonathan O’Rourke Hamstring 2-4 weeks
Cyril Rioli PCL 3-5 weeks
Ben Stratton Bone bruising (knee) 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

Good and bad news for the Hawks. Gibson’s injury is now confirmed but they get Birchall back this week and Stratton the next. Hodge and Breust are also handy inclusions this week. Rioli is back at the club and back running, which suggests the Hawks are leaning towards bringing him back for at least a few games before the end of the season. O’Meara’s situation remains clouded but credit the club for finally providing a detailed update on their website. – Ashley Browne

Jack Watts Hamstring Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

 

Early prognosis

Jones has been ruled out for 4-6 weeks in a massive blow for the Dees, while Watts will need to pass a fitness test for the clash against the Eagles. Coach Simon Goodwin said on the weekend Hogan is 2-3 weeks away from playing after being diagnosed with testicular cancer last month but the club still has him listed as indefinite. Ben Guthrie

Jy Simpkin AC joint 1-2 weeks
Lindsay Thomas Suspension Round 15
Ed Vickers-Willis PCL TBC
Corey Wagner Ankle Test
Declan Watson Ankle Test
Sam Wright Foot Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

Macmillan looks set to return after being a late withdrawal, while a host of others could also be back. Jacobs and Wright each had multiple setbacks, but may resume in the VFL, along with young prospects McKay and Wagner. Durdin did not return after being diagnosed with concussion in the first quarter of Werribee’s VFL game on Saturday. Jarrad Waite has recovered from his head hitting the ground hard in a tackle late in the contest against St Kilda. But Thomas will sit out again with suspension. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Karl Amon Knee 1-2 weeks
Aidyn Johnson AC joint 1 week
Angus Monfries Calf 1 week
Jared Polec Hamstring 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

The Power says Polec is a “long shot” to play Collingwood this Saturday. Scans showed minor signalling in his hamstring, but the club is confident he will return for the round 15 clash with Richmond. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Reece Conca* Foot Indefinite
Nathan Drummond* Knee Season
Todd Elton Shoulder 3-4 weeks
Ben Griffiths Concussion Indefinite
Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Callum Moore Ankle 2 weeks
Nick Vlastuin Shoulder Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

Vlastuin faces a fitness test this week after six weeks sidelined with a shoulder injury. He was close to returning against Sydney in round 13 and the club appears confident he will make the cut this week. The club has shaved a week off the return dates for Elton and Moore, with Dylan Grimes not listed after injuring an ankle in the last quarter against the Swans.  Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin 3-4 weeks
Hugh Goddard Foot Season
Paddy McCartin Knee Test
Ed Phillips Leg TBC
Nathan Wright Shoulder TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

McCartin joined the main group at Tuesday’s session and moved freely, with the main session to come on Thursday. Meanwhile, Wright ran laps and looks unlikely to be over the injury in his AC joint. There was a minor concern with Koby Stevens’ left shoulder during the game against North Melbourne in round 13 but he trained and will be fine for Sunday’s clash with Gold Coast. – Dinny Navaratnam

Harry Cunningham Foot 1-2 weeks
Alex Johnson* Knee Indefinite
Zak Jones Suspension Round 15
Jarrad McVeigh Hamstring Test
Kurt Tippett Ankle 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

McVeigh has trained well over the past few days but will need to recover well from Wednesday’s main session to have any chance of being selected for Friday night’s clash with the Bombers. Tippett is only likely to miss one game after pulling up sore after the Swans’ massive win in the NEAFL on Saturday, while Cunningham felt some pain during a running session on Monday and could miss another one or two games. Aliir suffered a minor knee injury in the last quarter of last week’s NEAFL win over Aspley but could be available. – Adam Curley

Jackson Nelson Hamstring TBC
Willie Rioli Hamstring 4-5 weeks
Simon Tunbridge Knee 1 week
Daniel Venables Toe 2-3 weeks
Jake Waterman Foot 4-5 weeks
Updated: Friday, June 16

Early prognosis

Spearhead Kennedy just fell short of returning against Geelong, but defender Sharrod Wellingham has been cleared to return from an ankle injury and will play for East Perth this weekend. Venables would’ve made his debut on Thursday against the Cats but has turf toe from a training incident, while Allen appears to have suffered a major setback with stress fractures in his foot. Nelson injured his hamstring in the game on Thursday night.  – Travis King

Updated: Tuesday, June 20

Early prognosis

  1. With news that JOM is out for a block of time and his future this year is starting to look bleak …. hmmm, he’ll be super cheap in 2018 😉

    1. Fool me once, shame on you……………….
      He’ll have to play a full pre-season and get through a few early season games before I’d even look at him again.

      1. Oh i was joking Schwarz, but i can see that he might suck a few people in next season if he’s looking good pre-season.

        Better to miss the boat if he comes good than to waste the trade on a burn man.

      2. I know Roo Bloke was joking Schwarz , but isn’t that what JOM did this year?
        Or am I just a bit slow on the uptake?

        1. I wouldn’t start with him again next year, regardless of price. Only if he can stand up for eight regular season games and have no complaints with the knees

          1. It’s hard to see him coming back from here to tell you the truth. Really hope I’m wrong but I won’t be selecting him until he has a full season behind him.Wish the boy luck though , way too much talent to go to waste.
