Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Patrick Ambrose Quad Test
Mitch Brown Ankle 6-7 weeks
Josh Green Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Ben McNeice Neck TBC
Jobe Watson Soreness Available
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

The Bombers will regain former captain Watson for their meeting with the Kangaroos at Saturday after he sat out last week’s win over St Kilda with soreness. The veteran is being carefully managed this season. Essendon will lose small forward Green to a minor hamstring injury, but Ambrose is likely to play in the VFL after recovering from successive quad injuries. Brown remains some way off a return. – Callum Twomey

Scott Selwood Hamstring Test
Tom Stewart Fractured eye socket Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

Dangerfield will wait until the last minute before deciding whether he plays after suffering a mid-foot sprain on Saturday. Scott Selwood remains uncertain as to whether he will play with his hamstring problems becoming a concern while Nakia Cockatoo is in similarly frustrating position. Lincoln McCarthy is touch and go to play again in 2017 with a decision expected soon. On the positive side, Andrew Mackie is expected to face the Crows and Tom Stewart is available and will wear a helmet when he returns. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Barlow Leg Season
Sam Day Hip Season
Kade Kolodjashnij Concussion Test
Jack Leslie Leg Test
Jarryd Lyons Ankle TBC
Steven May Hamstring TBC
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

May and Lyons are likely to miss Saturday’s match against the Bulldogs, while the Suns will be sweating on Leslie passing a fitness test. Kolodjashnij’s concussion has now stretched out over a month after the club initially thought he’d miss a week or two. – Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matt Buntine Knee Season
Jeremy Cameron Hamstring Test
Stephen Coniglio Ankle Test
Matt de Boer Concussion Test
Brett Deledio Calf TBC

Ryan Griffen Ankle 5 weeks
Harrison Himmelberg Finger Test
Jacob Hopper Ankle 1-2 weeks
Adam Kennedy Knee Season
Tim Mohr Calf 1-2 weeks
Sam Reid Ankle Test
Tim Taranto Ankle 6-8 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

Cameron, Coniglio, Reid and de Boer could all be a chance to play Richmond if they can get through training this week. Coach Leon Cameron will need to decide if Coniglio needs a game in the NEAFL after not playing since round eight, and managing just two games for the year. Himmelberg should also be available, with the Giants’ main session on Thursday the key factor in selection. In other good news, Kennedy ran for the first time this week after having a knee reconstruction in May. – Adam Curley

Jonathan O’Rourke Hamstring 1-3 weeks

Cyril Rioli PCL 4-6 weeks
Ben Stratton Knee Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

Not much change at the Hawks. If there are changes to the side to play Fremantle at Domain Stadium on Saturday they will be due to form. Stratton has already been ruled out for the season but will now undergo surgery to repair his knee. Inside midfielder Lovell will return to the VFL next week after a shoulder reconstruction, while O’Rourke is also expected to see some playing action before the end of the season. – Ashley Browne

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Angus Brayshaw Concussion Available
Tom Bugg Suspended Available round 22

Tim Smith Navicular bone Season
Dom Tyson Knee Available
Aaron vandenBerg* Heel Season
Bernie Vince Suspended Available round 20
Jack Viney Foot Test
Jack Watts Hamstring Available
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

Tyson and Watts will play against the Power and Viney is a legitimate chance to play. The co-skipper will need to prove he can run without pain in Thursday’s main session and if he can do that he should get the tick of approval. The Demons are planning for Brayshaw to play in the VFL this weekend, his first match in more than six weeks following his latest concussionBen Guthrie

Mitch Hibberd Shoulder Season
Ben Jacobs Lower leg Season
Oscar Junker Broken tibia TBC

Corey Wagner Ankle 3-4 weeks
Jarrad Waite Calf Test
Declan Watson Ankle/shin Test
Marley Williams Back 1 week
Mason Wood Calf 1 week
Sam Wright Foot/ankle TBC
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

Waite looks set to provide a timely boost for the Kangaroos, but a host of teammates ae either done for the season or close to it. Hibberd and Jacobs are officially finished for 2017, while Macmillan and Wright – back on the injury list again – are likely to follow suit. Wagner won’t be ready until late in the season at best, either. Preuss could come into AFL contention if he passes a fitness test, while Williams and Wood are at least another week away. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matthew Broadbent Ankle Test
Paddy Ryder Ankle Test
Updated: Monday, July 17

Early prognosis

Ryder rolled his ankle in the third quarter of the Power’s 70-point thumping of North Melbourne. He went back on the ground, but was rested in the last quarter as a precaution. Broadbent has missed three of the past four games after injuring his ankle at training a month ago. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Reece Conca* Foot TBC
Nathan Drummond* Knee Season
Jack Graham Ankle Test
Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Bachar Houli Suspension Round 19
Steven Morris Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

Graham is the only fresh injury for the Tigers after he sprained his ankle in the VFL at the weekend. The draftee will face a fitness test later this week to determine if he can play in the VFL. The Tigers have otherwise been buoyed as Ben Griffiths and Ben Lennon came off the injury list. The club is yet to determine a timeline for Reece Conca’s return. – Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin TBC
Nick Coughlan Hamstring TBC
Sam Gilbert Hand 3-4 weeks
Hugh Goddard Foot Season
Billy Longer Hamstring Test
Paddy McCartin Concussion Indefinite
Tim Membrey Suspension Available round 19
Darren Minchington Ankle 4-6 weeks
Bailey Rice Calf Test
Updated: Monday, July 17

Early prognosis

Geary suffered a knock to the quad against Essendon but the tough skipper is expected to be fit for Saturday night’s clash against Sydney at the SCG. Longer would likely come straight back in if he proves his fitness after suffering a corkie against Richmond in round 16. Rice copped a heavy corkie of his own in the VFL and missed the second half, so is in some doubt to come up this weekend. – Dinny Navaratnam

Estimated Return

Harry Cunningham Foot 1 week
Oliver Florent Foot Test
Robbie Fox Ankle 4-6 weeks
Colin O’Riordan Ankle 1-2 weeks
Sam Reid Groin Test
Gary Rohan Glute/hamstring Test
Kurt Tippett Ankle Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 18

Early prognosis

Reid and Rohan both failed to train with the main group on Tuesday, with Rohan heading to the pool, and both will need to hit the track on Thursday if they’re to be picked. Reid struggled to have an impact against the Giants, but the good news for Rohan is that he played out the game despite looking in trouble just before three-quarter time. Tippett came from the field after playing just over a half in the NEAFL last week, and was on light duties on Tuesday. – Adam Curley

      1. Remember it is not confirmed and is ‘could’. I still rememeber about JJK and Sandi back at the start of the byes and how that ended up being something like 7 weeks when it was only meant to be 2-3. Tread carefully with Pendles
