Injury List Rd23

Written by Schwarzwalder on August 20 2019

ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Tom Doedee  Knee  Season
 Cam Ellis-Yolmen  Shin  Season
 Will Hamill  Calf  Test
 Paul Hunter  Foot  2 weeks
 Jake Kelly  Shin  Test
 Riley Knight  Hip  Test
 Ned McHenry  Back  1 week
 Andrew McPherson  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Knight and Kelly are in doubt for Sunday’s crucial encounter with the Western Bulldogs at Ballarat. Knight was a late scratching from last weekend’s loss to Collingwood with hip soreness, while Kelly copped a knock to his shin and finished the game on the bench. Ellis-Yolmen has been ruled out for the rest of the year with bone and tendon issues limiting his progression from a shin injury. The big-bodied midfielder hasn’t played since round 13. – Lee Gaskin

BRISBANE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Allen Christensen  Hamstring  1 week
 Tom Joyce  Shin  3 weeks
 James Madden  Hamstring  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Good news on Christensen‘s hamstring injury, missing just a week. He should be fine for the first week of finals. – Michael Whiting 

CARLTON

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Sam Docherty  Knee  Season
 Michael Gibbons  Shoulder  Test
 Liam Jones  Throat  Season
 Pat Kerr  Shoulder  Season
 Darcy Lang  Ankle  Season
 Kym LeBois  Hamstring  Test
 Caleb Marchbank  Neck  Season
 Jacob Weitering  Groin  Test
 Tom Williamson  Back  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

The Blues will send Lang in for surgery to repair an ankle injury this week, ensuring he will go out of the side to take on the Cats on Saturday. Weitering should be available to return following a slight groin strain, while Gibbons will also have a fitness test to see if he is available after copping a heavy knock to his shoulder last week. – Riley Beveridge

COLLINGWOOD

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 James Aish  Shoulder  1-2 weeks
 Dayne Beams  Shoulder/Hip  Season
 Mason Cox  Eye  Season
 Jordan De Goey  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Lynden Dunn  Knee  Season
 Will Kelly  Hamstring  TBC
 Tom Langdon  Knee  Season
 Darcy Moore  Hamstring  Test
 Sam Murray  Provisional ASADA suspension  TBC
 Isaac Quaynor  Foot  TBC
 Ben Reid  Hamstring  TBC
 Brayden Sier  Calf  Test
 Jaidyn Stephenson  Suspended  1 week
 Daniel Wells  Knee  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Moore faces a test and could return for the big final round clash with Essendon at the MCG on Friday night. De Goey and Aish will target the Pies’ first final, while Wells and Sier appear set to return in the VFL. Quaynor still seems some time away and Kelly is also being managed conservatively, while Reid faces an uphill battle to play again this season. The suspended Stephenson will be available at finals time but the campaign is over for Cox, Langdon, Beams and Dunn. – Ben Collins

ESSENDON

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Tom Bellchambers  Calf  Available
 Zac Clarke  Leg  2-3 weeks
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Season
 Sam Draper  Knee  Season
 Noah Gown  Foot  Season
 Matt Guelfi  Knee  Season
 Cale Hooker  Groin  Available
 Irving Mosquito  Hamstring  Season
 Kobe Mutch  Knee  Season
 Will Snelling  Foot  1 week
 Devon Smith  Knee  Season
 James Stewart  Groin  Season
 David Zaharakis  Ankle  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

The return of Bellchambers after his calf injury is particularly timely given Clarke will be off his feet for a couple of weeks with bone stress in his fibula. Hooker is also expected back after missing last week with a groin injury. Zaharakis underwent surgery and is unlikely to be available for the rest of the season, even if the Bombers went deep into September, while first-year Bombers Mosquito (hamstring) and Gown (foot) have had surgery on their issues.  Callum Twomey

FREMANTLE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Brennan Cox  Hip  1 week
 Stefan Giro  Knee  Season
 Stephen Hill  Quad  TBC
 Jesse Hogan  Foot  Season
 Scott Jones  Shoulder  Test
 Rory Lobb  Shoulder  Season
 Lloyd Meek  Foot  Season
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  Season
 Luke Ryan  Hamstring  1 week
 Matt Taberner  Foot  Season
 Luke Valente  Groin  Season
 Tobe Watson  Knee  Test
 Nathan Wilson  Toe  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, August 13

Early prognosis

Cox and Ryan will hopefully be available for the final round against Port Adelaide, while it is unclear at this stage whether Wilson will play again this year after progressing slowly from a toe issue. – Travis King

GEELONG

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Tom Atkins  Hand  1-2 weeks
 Jordan Clark  Elbow  1-2 weeks
 Nakia Cockatoo  Hamstring  Test
 Jordan Cunico  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Lachie Fogarty  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Ben Jarvis  Ankle  Test
 Gary Rohan  Knee  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Atkins injured his hand at training last week but a decision to send him for surgery was made after the loss to the Lions. Clark’s quickest possible return will be in the first final, while Fogarty is more likely to overcome his hamstring for the first VFL final during the AFL pre-finals bye. Rohan trained on Tuesday with a decision on his availability to come later in the week, likely to be through the VFL if cleared. Cockatoo has now missed the past fortnight with hamstring tightness but the Cats are hopeful he can play VFL this weekend. Jarvis missed the VFL last week with an ankle he hurt the week prior. – Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Callum Ah Chee  Ankle  Season
 Will Brodie  Hamstring  Season
 Sam Collins  Hip  Season
 Brayden Crossley  Suspension  TBC
 Nick Holman  Back  Season
 Jack Hombsch  Ankle  Season
 Jack Martin  Knee  Test
 Jez McLennan  Ankle  Season
 Anthony Miles  Ankle  Season
 Wil Powell  Knee  Season
 Mitch Riordan  Calf  Season
 Rory Thompson  Knee  Season
 Harrison Wigg  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Just one player to test this week and that’s Martin, who is expected to recover from the knock to his knee he got the weekend before last in the NEAFL. Sam Day has overcome a migraine that saw him exit early from Sunday’s match against Hawthorn. – Michael Whiting

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Stephen Coniglio  Knee  2 weeks
 Brett Deledio  Calf  1 week
 Matt Flynn  Knee  Season
 Nick Haynes  Fractured larynx  2-4 weeks
 Jacob Hopper  Hamstring  1 weeks
 Zac Langdon  Ankle  1 weeks
 Jonathon Patton  Knee  TBC
 Callan Ward  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Haynes was injured in Sunday’s loss to the Western Bulldogs but could be ready for week one of the finals. Jeremy Cameron (hamstring), Jeremy Finlayson (hamstring), Sam Taylor (hamstring) and Daniel Lloyd (calf) are all available to face the Suns on Saturday night. Hopper is likely to play in the first final. Ward ran for the first time on Tuesday in a positive sign for the co-captain. – Adam Curley

HAWTHORN

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Grant Birchall  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Conor Glass  Abdominal  Test
 Will Golds  Ankle  Test
 Jarman Impey  Knee  Season
 Harry Jones  Knee  Season
 Mitch Lewis  Shoulder  1 week
 Darren Minchington  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Tom Mitchell  Broken leg  Season
 Tim Mohr  Dislocated knee/ACL  Season
 Harry Morrison  Broken jaw  Season
 Ned Reeves  Hip  Test
 Ryan Schoenmakers  Calf  1 week
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Lewis is set to miss a second game in a row, with his injured shoulder not sufficiently recovered. Morrison broke his jaw in the VFL on Sunday, underwent surgery the same day and the recovery period of up to six weeks rules him out for the rest of the season. Glass had a setback in the VFL as well, but may not miss any games, while project ruckman Reeves is dealing with a hip complaint.Marc McGowan

MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Kade Chandler  Finger  Season
 Jeff Garlett  Shoulder  Season
 Mitch Hannan  Groin  Season
 Neville Jetta  Knee  Season
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Head  Season
 Steven May  Hamstring  Season
 Corey Maynard  Hip  Season
 Oscar McDonald  Ankle  TBC
 Tom McDonald  Knee  Season
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
 Harry Petty  Groin  TBC
 Joel Smith  Groin  Season
 Tim Smith  Foot  Season
 Tom Sparrow  Knee  1 week
 Aaron vandenBerg  Foot  Season
 Guy Walker  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Sam Weideman  Jaw/hip  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Max Gawn (hamstring) and Jordan Lewis (corked shin) are right to go after minor incidents last round. The club is yet to confirm if Oscar McDonald and Petty are fit to play after missing last week. Unfortunately, it’s one and done for debutant Chandler, who fractured his finger during his first AFL match, but played out the game. Weideman has now had surgery on both hips, with the aim of re-joining the main group in December. VFL side Casey is still a chance to make finals if results go its way, with Sparrow the only one who could return. Sarah Black

NORTH MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Paul Ahern  Hamstring  Test
 Jed Anderson  Hamstring  TBC
 Luke Davies-Uniacke  Shoulder  Season
 Majak Daw  Hamstring  Season
 Aaron Hall  Personal leave  Indefinite
 Kyron Hayden  Achilles  Season
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  Season
 Luke McDonald  Fractured fibula  Season
 Bailey Scott  Foot  Season
 Robbie Tarrant  Ankle  Test
 Curtis Taylor  Managed  Available
 Dom Tyson  Shoulder  Season
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Knee  Season
 Will Walker  Knee  Season
 Declan Watson  Knee  Season
 Sam Wright  Hamstring/retirement  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Anderson‘s latest hamstring setback is likely to sideline him from the Roos’ season finale against Melbourne, while last week’s late withdrawal, Ahern, is in some doubt as well. However, they are confident Tarrant will make the trip to Hobart. Tyson‘s horror first season in blue and white is over after sustaining a shoulder injury in just his second VFL game back from a persistent calf problem. First-year forward Taylor also won’t be seen again in 2019, after missing the past fortnight’s matches. – Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Xavier Duursma  Bruised heel  Test
 Brad Ebert  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Jake Patmore  Knee  Season
 Jack Watts  Leg  Indefinite
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Duursma will be put through his paces at training this week to see if he will return from a bruised heel for Sunday’s clash with Fremantle at Adelaide Oval. Ebert could be available for the finals if the Power make an unlikely charge into the top eight. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Trent Cotchin  Hamstring  Test
 Dylan Grimes  Ankle  Test
 Jack Higgins  Brain bleed  Season
 Toby Nankervis  Adductor  1-2 weeks
 Alex Rance  Knee  Season
 Sydney Stack  Ankle  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Stack underwent surgery on Monday night for an ankle syndesmosis injury which occurred in the VFL. Grimes will need to get through training, while Cotchin should be right to go this round after being held over an extra week. The picture isn’t as clear for Nankervis, who is battling adductor/groin soreness stemming back to his long-term injury earlier this year. – Sarah Black

ST KILDA

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 David Armitage  Concussion  Indefinite
 Logan Austin  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Jack Bytel  Back  Season
 Nick Coffield  Shoulder  Season
 Jarryn Geary  Leg  Season
 Jade Gresham  Eye socket  Test
 Dean Kent  Quad  Season
 Max King  Ankle  Season
 Billy Longer  Concussion  Season
 Paddy McCartin  Concussion  Season
 Lewis Pierce  Concussion  Indefinite
 Dylan Roberton  Heart  Season
 Updated: Monday, August 19

Early prognosis

The one to watch for this week is Gresham. He hasn’t played since the round 20 loss to Adelaide as he deals with a fractured eye socket, and the Saints won’t take any risks in the final round of the season. – Dinny Navaratnam

SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Harry Cunningham  Groin  Season
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  Test
 Will Hayward  Hip  Season
 Zak Jones  Hamstring  Season
 Jack Maibaum  Knee  Season
 Jarrad McVeigh  Calf  Test
 Sam Naismith  Iliotibial band  Test
 Colin O’Riordan  Groin  Season
 Callum Sinclair  Shoulder  Season
 Nick Smith  Hamstring  Season
 Durak Tucker  Hamstring  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

 Early prognosis

Franklin and McVeigh both trained on Tuesday and look on track to face St Kilda on Saturday, in what would be Franklin’s 300th match and McVeigh’s farewell game. Naismith was also trained on Tuesday and will likely make another comeback in the NEAFL, but Jones was limited to running laps and is done for the year. – Adam Curley

WEST COAST

 Jarrod Brander  Hamstring  Season
 Liam Duggan  Ankle  Test
 Luke Foley  Calf  1 week
 Fraser McInnes  Quad  1 week
 Nic Naitanui  Ankle  Indefinite
 Brodie Riach  Stress fracture  2 weeks
 Josh Smith  Hamstring  3 weeks
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, August 13

Early prognosis

Naitanui made a surprise appearance during an hour-long session on Tuesday and appeared to have no issues running, kicking or jumping in a promising sign ahead of his bid to return in the first week of finals. Duggan and Foley also trained strongly, while Smith looks to be progressing well from a nasty hamstring setback and could return close to WAFL finals if the Eagles’ reserves qualify. – Travis King

WESTERN BULLDOGS

Player

Estimated Return

 Caleb Daniel  Hamstring  5-7 weeks
 Tim English  Illness  Available
 Ryan Gardner  Knee  2-4 weeks

 Fergus Greene  Shoulder  Season
 Lin Jong  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Tom Liberatore  Knee  Indefinite
 Dale Morris  Knee  Season
 Mitch Wallis  Ankle  Indefinite
 Updated: Tuesday, August 20

Early prognosis

Tim English and Billy Gowers were both struck down by illness on Saturday but are available for this weekend. Lin Jong injured his hamstring at training and will miss a couple of weeks. – Josh Schonafinger

    1. Everyone with trades want Gawn to miss, everyone without trades want Gawn to play. I form part of the latter.

      Personally I don’t know how anyone has survived this far and still has trades left to spend.

      1. I have one left having run out at Rd17 last year!
        Was more careful this year, but also realised that going for overall at about Rd16 would be a thankless task. Focus then switched to finals and retaining trades for this type of scenario.
        One thing I will say is it hasn’t been as much fun!
        To be honest, having between $500k-$1.2mn. of premo value sitting on my bench EVERY week for 17 straight weeks (Rds5-21 incl.) has simply annoyed the fu3k out of me. 🙂
        I may have found a way to combat this to an extent next year, but a lot of it will of course simply remain down to our luck with injuries.

      2. Well, i realised last night that i had neglected the team that my wife made for SCTalk league (as i didn’t make the finals in that league, so gave up looking at it) but i did make it thru in the public league, still won last week somehow, still have 5 trades and $420k itb – trying to figure how i can transfer that across to my main team!
