Injury

Estimated Return

Cam Ellis-Yolmen* Knee Season
Curtly Hampton* Ankle 6-8 weeks
Kyle Hartigan Hamstring 4-6 weeks
Tom Lynch Viral meningitis Ongoing assessment
Reilly O’Brien Back Ongoing assessment
Harrison Wigg Hip Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Lynch will miss his second-straight game after being ruled out of Friday night’s clash with the Western Bulldogs at Adelaide Oval. Cameron will return providing he completed Tuesday’s main training session. Back-up ruckman Reilly O’Brien will also be sidelined again after he was a late scratching from the SANFL last week– Lee Gaskin 

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Dayne Beams Shoulder 2-3 weeks
Tom Bell Ankle Season
Allen Christensen Shoulder Season
Darcy Gardiner Elbow TBC
Ryan Harwood Foot TBC
Mitch Robinson Foot Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

The fear is Gardiner’s season could be over after his horror injury against the Bombers. Although it would leave a hole in the defence, it would also give Chris Fagan a chance to assess another player or two on his list. Beams is still a couple of weeks away from returning. – Michael Whiting

Injury

Estimated Return

Ed Curnow Bruised larynx 4 weeks
Daniel Gorringe Adductor Test
Jed Lamb Concussion Test
Andrew Phillips* Foot Season
Sam Rowe* Knee Season
Alex Silvagni Knee 1 week
Tom Williamson Back 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

The Blues will be without Curnow for up to a month after the midfielder consulted a specialist. He suffered significant bruising to his larynx during the round 14 game against Richmond and missed last Saturday’s match against Adelaide. In better news, Lamb is expected to be available this weekend after missing last Saturday’s game with concussion. Silvagni and Williamson are back in full training and should be available for selection in round 17. – Howard Kotton

Max Lynch Hip Test
Darcy Moore Hamstring Test
Adam Oxley Groin/hip 10-11 weeks
Ben Sinclair* Hamstring 4-5 weeks
Daniel Wells Calf 2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Goldsack and Moore were casualties from the Pies’ loss to Hawthorn on Sunday and in good news are listed as tests for the clash with Essendon on Saturday. Wells is now a 2-3 proposition as he comes back from his latest calf injury. Sinclair is at least a month away with a long-term hamstring injury. – Ben Collins

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Patrick Ambrose Quad 2-3 weeks
Mitch Brown Ankle 6-7 weeks
Ben McNeice Neck Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Defender Brown could have earned a recall to the senior team this week but his season could be over after suffering another ankle injury in the dying moments of the VFL clash last weekend. The former Cat is set to miss at least six weeks with the concern. McNiece is still recovering from a neck injury he suffered at training in recent weeks and the club is handling it in a cautious manner, while Ambrose’s quad complaint will see him miss at least another two weeks. – Callum Twomey

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Apeness Knee Season
Harley Bennell Calf 1-2 weeks
Zac Clarke* Knee TBC
Josh Deluca Ankle Test
Stephen Hill Calf Test
Ed Langdon Knee Test
Alex Pearce Leg TBC
Aaron Sandilands Hamstring Season
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBC
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Bennell is desperate to return to football after 16 months on the sidelines, but the Dockers are taking a cautious approach as his comeback game draws closer. Hill will train later in the week but is expected to return against the Roos. – Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Nakia Cockatoo Hamstring Test
Josh Cowan Achilles Season
Jordan Cunico Ankle Test

Daniel Menzel Knee Test
Quinton Narkle Knee Season
Tom Ruggles Collarbone 4 weeks
Joel Selwood Concussion Test
Scott Selwood Hamstring Test
Tom Stewart Fractured eye-socket 4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

The Cats have more than half a dozen players facing tests after their injury list blew out last week. Most will be available however, and with Brandan Parfitt successfully returning via the VFL the Cats should have a stronger squad to face the Brisbane Lions. Giving a few of their senior players a rest remains an option too, given they sit in third spot. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Barlow Leg Season
Sam Day Hip Season
Jarrad Grant Groin Test
Aaron Hall Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Pearce Hanley Hamstring Test
Kade Kolodjashnij Concussion Test
Brandon Matera Foot Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

For the second week in a row, Hanley came off against the Kangaroos with a hamstring niggle. It’s not torn, but the Suns might want to err on the side of caution this week. Kolodjashnij and Matera will undergo tests this week, while Hall’s hamstring was a little worse than first thought– Michael Whiting

Lachlan Tiziani Knee 1-2 weeks
Zac Williams Hamstring Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Greene, Williams and Reid will be tested at training on Wednesday at Spotless Stadium in a bid to prove their fitness for the Hawks clash, with Reid the most likely of that trio to feature, after he played out the game against Geelong on Saturday night. Deledio is edging close to a return after doing some more training last week. – Adam Curley

Kieran Lovell Shoulder Indefinite
Jaeger O’Meara Knee Indefinite
Jonathan O’Rourke Hamstring 2-4 weeks
Cyril Rioli PCL 4-6 weeks
Ben Stratton Knee Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Big news at the Hawks with Stratton out for the season and Birchall set to miss at least a week, both because of knee injuries. Don’t hold your breath on Rioli playing again this year, either. Gibson and Frawley will get back and the hope is that O’Meara will, too. Puopolo faces a test ahead of the Giants game this week. – Ashley Browne

Updated: Tuesday, July 4

 

Early prognosis

Hogan trained strongly on Tuesday and will need to do so again on Friday to prove his fitness ahead of Sunday’s clash against Carlton. Watts and Garlett will need to pick up their training on Friday, while Tyson is in doubt. Ben Guthrie

Paul Ahern* Knee Season
Trent Dumont Managed Test
Ben Jacobs Lower leg TBC
Oscar Junker Broken tibia TBC
Jamie Macmillan Finger 6-8 weeks
Braydon Preuss Elbow Test
Kayne Turner Knee 3 weeks
Ed Vickers-Willis PCL TBC
Jarrad Waite Calf 3-4 weeks
Declan Watson Ankle Test
Marley Williams Back 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Waite’s latest injury setback will put him on the sidelines for the third time this season. He hurt the AC joint in his left shoulder in round one and copped a one-week suspension for a rough conduct charge in round seven. But Macmillan’s season could be over after requiring finger surgery. Williams was a late withdrawal last week and will miss again, while Preuss didn’t play in the VFL at the weekend. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Karl Amon Knee Test
Hamish Hartlett Corked thigh Test
Updated: Monday, July 3

Early prognosis

Key defender Hombsch is available for Sunday’s trip to Perth to face West Coast after he was a late scratching with a knee injury in the loss to Richmond. Hartlett and Amon will face fitness tests this week. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Bachar Houli Suspension Round 19
Ben Lennon Hamstring 1 week
Callum Moore Ankle Test
Steven Morris Hamstring 4-5 weeks
Nick Vlastuin Shoulder Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Vlastuin pulled up sore after his VFL return two weeks ago and needs to pass a fitness test this week to return, likely at VFL level again. Shai Bolton has come off the injury list after being managed for one match. Conca hopes to have a more definitive timeline for his return in the coming week. – Nathan Schmook

Player

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin 3 weeks
Nick Coughlan Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Sam Gilbert Concussion Test
Hugh Goddard Foot Season
Paddy McCartin Concussion Test
Darren Minchington Ankle 6-8 weeks
Jimmy Webster Suspension Available round 18
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

The signs are positive for McCartin. He’s feeling good and has been training but needs to pass the concussion test to be declared fit for the weekend. Gilbert was concussed after a heavy tackle from Fremantle forward Cam McCarthy and will similarly need to overcome that injury. – Dinny Navaratnam

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Darcy Cameron Shoulder Season
Harry Cunningham Foot 1-2 weeks
Will Hayward Foot 1 week
Callum Mills Concussion Test
Kurt Tippett Ankle 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, July 4

Early prognosis

Callum Mills will be tested later in the week after being concussed in the incident with Melbourne’s Tom Bugg, but should be right to face Gold Coast. Tippett and Cunningham will be a chance to play in round 17, while Hayward is also likely back next week after the Swans opted to be cautious with the first year forward’s recovery from foot soreness. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matthew Allen Foot Season
Tarir Bayok Hamstring 2-3 weeks

Will Schofield Hip TBC
Simon Tunbridge Knee 2 weeks
Daniel Venables Toe 1-2 weeks

Updated: Thursday, June 29

Early prognosis

Star midfielder Priddis will miss this week with soreness, while Schofield and Hill have also been ruled out. 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. Nelson and Venables have both stagnated in their recoveries and will be at least another week or two before resuming. – Travis King
