Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Patrick Ambrose Quad 3-4 weeks
Cale Hooker Finger Test
Jayden Laverde* Ankle Test
Updated: Thursday, June 27

Early prognosis

Essendon is expecting to have Hooker back from injury after the important key forward missed last week’s loss to the Swans with a finger injury. He will need to get through training this week but the Bombers are confident the All Australian will be available. Laverde is also a chance to return, albeit through the VFL, after missing all of the season with an ankle injury he suffered in the JLT Community Series competition. Dashing half-back Conor McKenna will be fine to meet the Brisbane Lions on Sunday despite hurting his finger late in the defeat to Sydney. – Callum Twomey

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Apeness Knee Season
Harley Bennell Calf 1-2 weeks
Zac Clarke* Knee TBC
Nat Fyfe Bruised sternum Test
Brady Grey Hamstring Test
Jon Griffin Calf Test
Ed Langdon Knee Test
Alex Pearce Leg TBC
Danyle Pearce Calf Test
Aaron Sandilands Hamstring Test
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

The Dockers will test skipper Fyfe against but he is expected to return from a bruised sternum against the Saints, while veteran ruckman Sandilands could finally be back after missing the past month with hamstring tendon inflammation. Danyle Pearce hurt his calf playing for Peel at the weekend, but the injury was only minor. Bennell’s long-awaited comeback from calf trouble via Peel Thunder could only be a week away. Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Tom Ruggles Collarbone 4-6 weeks
Joel Selwood Concussion  Test
Scott Selwood Hamstring Test
Zac Smith Illness Test
Tom Stewart Fractured eye-socket TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

If Joel Selwood is declared fit to play, it won’t happen until the day of the game after he copped a concussion on Sunday. Stewart is unavailable after a fractured eye socket required surgery while Cunico and Lang may push to play. Henderson, Cockatoo and Smith are all in the mix after missing last week. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Gary Ablett Calf Test
Michael Barlow Leg Season
Sam Day Hip Season
Jarrad Grant Groin 1 week
Aaron Hall Hamstring 1 week
Kade Kolodjashnij Concussion Test
Brandon Matera Foot TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

All eyes will be on Ablett this week after he was a late scratching from the weekend’s game against St Kilda. The club is hopeful he’ll play this weekend, but the champion midfielder is no certainty. Kolodjashnij copped a big bump at training last Thursday and needs to undergo more testing, while Hall’s hamstring will keep him out a little longer. – Michael Whiting

Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

Taranto had surgery on Monday and is hopeful of being back before the finals, but he’ll be in a race against time with only nine rounds remaining in the regular season. Kelly and Smith will be hoping to prove their fitness at Wednesday’s main training session at Spotless Stadium, with the skilful forward ahead of schedule in his return from knee surgery. – Adam Curley

Jonathan O’Rourke Hamstring 1-3 weeks

Ben Stratton Bone bruising (knee) Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

The Hawks returned from Adelaide with no fresh injuries and four unexpected premiership points. At the time of writing the Hawks had not published an injury report for the week but the hope is Stratton will be available to play after missing five matches. Returns to footy for Rioli, Frawley and Gibson are also on the horizon as the Hawks move closer to full strength. – Ashley Browne

Updated: Tuesday, June 27

 

Early prognosis

Hogan is a chance to play his first game since round seven when the Dees take on the Swans on Friday night. The star forward will be tested this week to determine his availability. Garlett and Watts also face fitness tests. Viney has been declared a certain starter after hurting his shoulder during the clash with West Coast. Ben Guthrie

Sam Durdin Concussion Test
Ben Jacobs Lower leg Test
Oscar Junker Broken tibia TBC
Jy Simpkin AC joint Test
Kayne Turner Knee 5 weeks
Ed Vickers-Willis PCL TBC
Declan Watson Ankle Test
Jack Ziebell Shoulder Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

The Roos lose inside midfielder Cunnington to suspension, but could regain more players after Sam Wright, Corey Wagner and Ben McKay returned in the VFL last week. Lindsay Thomas is available after a second VFL suspension interrupted his bid to force his way back into the Roos’ senior side. Durdin, Jacobs and Simpkin are potential inclusions, while all eyes will be on Ziebell to see if he recovers sufficiently from his shoulder complaint. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Karl Amon Knee Assess
Matthew Broadbent Ankle Assess
Aidyn Johnson AC joint Assess
Angus Monfries Calf Assess
Jared Polec Hamstring Assess
Updated: Monday, June 26

Early prognosis

The Power is set to have a clean bill of health. Broadbent – who rolled his ankle in training late last week – is set to return to face Richmond on Saturday night, while Polec and Amon will also be considered. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Reece Conca* Foot Indefinite
Nathan Drummond* Knee Season
Todd Elton Shoulder 1-2 weeks
Ben Griffiths Concussion Indefinite
Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Ben Lennon Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Callum Moore Ankle 1 week
Steve Morris Hamstring 4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

Morris suffered his hamstring injury in the VFL as the out-of-luck defender continued his return from a serious knee injury, while Lennon was injured at training last Friday. Griffiths is taking contact in training now and continuing to run, but the Tigers remain in the dark about his prospects to return this season. – Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin 2-3 weeks
Nick Coughlan Hamstring TBC
Hugh Goddard Foot Season
Paddy McCartin Concussion 1-2 weeks
Daniel McKenzie Hip TBC
Darren Minchington Ankle Test
Ed Phillips Leg Test
Nathan Wright Shoulder Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

McCartin’s head knock was on the lighter end of the scale but with the latest incident his sixth concussion since 2014, the Saints are treating him conservativly. McKenzie played on in the VFL after he copped a hit but was limited with his running. Wright is likely to return after an AC joint injury. Minchington played out the game for Sandringham with an ankle knock and will need to pass a fitness test. – Dinny Navaratnam

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Aliir Aliir Knee Test
Darcy Cameron Shoulder Season
Harry Cunningham Foot 1-2 weeks
Alex Johnson* Knee Indefinite
Kurt Tippett Ankle 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

Aliir completed the Swans’ light session on Monday and if he gets through training on Wednesday should be available for selection, while Tippett and Cunningham are at least another week away, but will increase their training this week in a bid to be fit for round 16. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matthew Allen Foot Season
Tarir Bayok Hamstring 2-3 weeks

Jackson Nelson Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Willie Rioli Hamstring 2 weeks
Simon Tunbridge Knee 2 weeks
Daniel Venables Toe 1-2 weeks
Jake Waterman Foot 2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

Hurn, Kennedy and LeCras are all aiming to be back against Port Adelaide on Sunday week but none of that experienced trio is guaranteed to make it back to face the Power. Nelson and Venables have both stagnated in their recoveries and will be at least another week or two before resuming. – Travis King

Lin Jong Knee Season
Robert Murphy Hamstring Test

Updated: Tuesday, June 27

Early prognosis

Murphy will return for Saturday’s clash with West Coast if he passes a fitness test on his hamstring. A knee complaint is unlikely to keep Picken sidelined. – Ryan Davidson
