Early prognosis

Milera will miss at least a week with a hamstring injury – the eighth the club has had this season. WalkerSloane and Knightall have to get through main training on Wednesday to prove their fitness for Saturday’s Showdown with Port Adelaide. Hampton would likely come through the SANFL if he’s fit after missing last week’s game, and given his injury history. – Lee Gaskin

Updated: Thursday, May 3

Early prognosis

In further bad news, Cuningham suffered a low-grade hamstring strain in the VFL last Saturday. – Howard Kotton

 Scott Pendlebury  Ankle  Test
 Ben Reid  Achilles  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 8

Early prognosis

Pendlebury appears to face an uphill battle to be ready for the big clash with Geelong on Sunday. Maynard seems a better chance than Reid of being passed fit, while Langdon could also come back. Elliott has returned to full training and is closing in on a return. The club continues to monitor Kirby’s heart issue. – Ben Collins

 Josh Green  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Matthew Leuenberger  Suspension  Round eight
 Conor McKenna  Suspension  Available
 David Myers  Rested  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 1

Early prognosis

Essendon will take a conservative approach with Fantasia, but Wednesday’s main training session looms as an important one for the small forward if he is to face Hawthorn this week. Dea is available after his leg injury but Brown remains a week off, while Myers and Bellchambers, who were rested last week, will also be putting their hands up for a return. – Callum Twomey

 Sam Simpson  Knee  Test
 Harry Taylor  Foot  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 8

Early prognosis

Sunday will mark 35 days since Gary Ablett‘s second hamstring of the year and he’s been given the green light to return.  Brandan Parfitt‘s foot injury remains a mystery, Chris Scott saying last week the outlook remained “grey”. Daniel Menzelwas hobbling last Thursday and has missed two weeks of training. He would need big sessions on the track to be considered, but the nine-day turnaround will assist. George Horlin-Smith will be back in the frame after missing one week with concussion. Harry Taylor is set to return, but after missing six weeks will it be AFL or VFL? Lincoln McCarthy has been held back but is set to be unleashed in the VFL this week. – Mitch Cleary

 Grant Birchall  PCL  6-7 weeks
 Dylan Moore  Shoulder  2 weeks
 Paul Puopolo  Hamstring  2 weeks

 Liam Shiels  Back  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 1

Early prognosis

 Christian Petracca  Finger  Test
 Christian Salem  Thumb  1-2 weeks
 Aaron vandenBerg  Ankle  5 weeks
 Jack Viney  Foot  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 1

Early prognosis

Salem will miss the game against the Saints with a broken thumb, while Petracca remains in doubt for a second-straight week after contracting an infection from a dog bite. Hogan did not train on the track on Tuesday and will be monitored carefully over the next few days. The star forward copped a heavy knock on his knee and rolled his right ankle against the Bombers. Viney is still at least two weeks away from a return. Tom Bugg played in the VFL on the weekend after recovering quickly from a corked hip. – Ben Guthrie – Ben Guthrie

 Declan Mountford  Ankle  Test
 Mitch Hibberd  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Gordon Narrier  Hip  TBC
 Jarrad Waite  Managed  1 week
 Declan Watson  Knee  Indefinite
Updated: Thursday, May 3

Early prognosis

Higgins is on track to play against Sydney on Saturday night, but the Roos have lost Daw to a foot injury and have decided to manage Waite. Hibberd hurt his left knee in a tackle during a VFL match on Sunday and faces multiple weeks out, while Narrier is the other new entry. – Marc McGowan

 Todd Marshall  Persoanl reasons  Indefinite
 Lindsay Thomas  Suspension  Round 10 return
 Chad Wingard  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Monday, May 7

Early prognosis

Forward Wingard could return for Saturday’s Showdown with Adelaide at Adelaide Oval. Wingard has missed one game with a hamstring injury.  Amon will be monitored this week after he was concussed in the loss to West Coast. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Trent Cotchin  Knee  Test
 Ben Griffiths  Retired
 Oleg Markov  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Daniel Rioli  Foot  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, May 1

Early prognosis

Cotchin is sore after a right knee knock late in the game against Collingwood and will be given time to prove his fitness. He’s confident he’ll play after scans showed no structural damage, but a decision will be made after he really tests it out later in the week. Nick Vlastuin and Josh Caddy got through the Collingwood game after returning from calf and hamstring soreness respectively and will be available. Rioli continues to toil away at training but is yet to earmark a VFL game to return in. Oleg Markov will miss a couple of weeks with a quad injury he sustained in Saturday’s win over Werribee. – Jennifer Phelan

ST KILDA

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Blake Acres  Groin  Test

 Darren Minchington  Knee  2 weeks
 Dylan Roberton  Heart  Season
 Shane Savage  Thigh  Test
 Koby Stevens  Concussion  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 8

Early prognosis

Acres should be back to face Fremantle on Saturday after missing the loss to Melbourne but the forward line will change again after losing Long and McCartin. A rolled right ankle shouldn’t stop Gilbert from playing, nor should a corked thigh for Savage. – Dinny Navaratnam

 James Bell  Hamstring  4 weeks
 Jordan Dawson  Quad  4 weeks
 Jordan Foote  Toe  4 weeks

 Toby Pink  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Sam Reid  Quad  7-9 weeks
 Kurt Tippett  Retired
 Dean Towers  Eye  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 1

 Early prognosis

The Swans are hopeful Franklin and Hannebery can push for selection next week, but Melican had a setback late last week with his rehab and will miss another two matches at least. Towers will need to be cleared by an eye specialist but remains a chance to face North Melbourne on Saturday night. – Adam Curley

  1. – Daniher ruled out for ESS for 4 weeks with early onset OP.
    – Lobb and Cameron are set to return for GWS which is good news for Finlayson, he should go back for a full game and revert to 80+ scoring. Kelly and Lids are still a week away.
    – Shuey’s to miss 2/3 weeks and Jetta/Sheed are set to miss this week for WCE.

    1. Lobb and Cameron back is good news for ZGL too. Watching him try to play as a key forward last week was equals parts painful and hilarious

  2. Anyone with an idea of how much longer Greene will be out? i have both him and Buddy on the bench and copped a doughnut with guelfi out last week. will hold if he’s only a week or 2 away (considering ive held this long) otherwise i’m thinking
    Greene to Macrae via DPP

    1. It states “still no timeline on Greene”.
      Personally I pulled the pin two weeks ago. I would be inclined to do the same as that sounds like 2+ minimum from here. Grab yourself some points!

    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    The Blues hope to bolster their ranks for this Saturday’s game against Essendon by regaining the services of skipper Murphy, forward Curnow and defender Marchbank. But they will have to find a replacement for key forward Casboult, who suffered a broken rib late in last Saturday night’s game against the Crows. – Howard Kotton

    Pendlebury appears to face an uphill battle to be ready for the big clash with Geelong on Sunday. Maynard seems a better chance than Reid of being passed fit, while Langdon could also come back.

    Orazio Fantasia Groin Available
    Martin Gleeson Ankle 6-7 weeks
    Josh Green Hamstring 2 weeks
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Daniher is the big news, with last year’s best and fairest winner set for at least a month on the sidelines as he battles the onset osteitis pubis. The nagging groin injury has gotten worse and worse so he faces a layoff after an underwhelming start to the season. Fantasia played the second half of the club’s VFL game last week but is available for senior selection this week. – Callum Twomey

    Matt Taberner Foot TBA
    Michael Walters Knee 1-2 weeks
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Stephen Hill struggled with quad tightness during the 77-point loss to Richmond and is in doubt for Saturday night’s clash with St Kilda. Walters is facing another week or two out despite some thought he could be available for the Saints game. Bradley Hill doesn’t have a timeframe still after hurting his knee in round two but should be back running next week. Darcy and Dixon have started running, but Taberner is still in a moon boot. – Travis King

Parfitt’s foot injury remains a mystery, Chris Scott saying last week the outlook remained “grey”. Menzel was hobbling last Thursday and has missed two weeks of training. He would need big sessions on the track to be considered, but the nine-day turnaround will assist. Horlin-Smith will be back in the frame after missing one week with concussion. Taylor is set to return, but after missing six weeks will it be AFL or VFL? McCarthy has been held back but is set to be unleashed in the VFL this week. Hawkins will miss the game against Collingwood after receiving a one-match ban for umpire contact. – Mitch Cleary

    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    The good news for the Giants is that star forward Jeremy Cameron (toe) and Rory Lobb (knee) are fit to face West Coast, but Kelly and Deledio will miss another game, and there’s still has no set date on Greene’s return. – Adam Curley

    Paul Puopolo Hamstring 1 week
    Cyril Rioli Medial ligament 3-4 weeks
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Ricky Henderson (gastro) should be available after being a late out last week, while the other late withdrawal, Langford, will have to prove his fitness. Puopolo could be back as soon as round nine, but Rioli is still about a month away. Heatherley, Oli Hanrahan and Jackson Ross each missed their third straight VFL game at the weekend, while Kieran Lovell, Harry Jones and Changkuoth Jiath were other outs. – Ashley Browne

    Jack Viney Foot Test
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Viney will train fully on Wednesday morning and then the match committee will decide whether he plays at VFL or AFL level. Salem is set to train with the main group on Wednesday, although his contact training will be kept to a minimum. However, the Demons are confident the midfielder will play this weekend. – Ben Guthrie

    Declan Mountford Ankle Test
    Gordon Narrier Hip TBC
    Ed Vickers-Willis Knee TBC
    Declan Watson Knee Indefinite
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Jarrad Waite will return after being rested last week. But the Roos lose Vickers-Willis for a relatively extended period after he reinjured the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which sidelined him for the final 11 rounds of last year. Daw is a good chance to come back after a week off, while Garner is hopeful of resuming in the VFL after his minor setback. First-year ruckman Tristan Xerri was rested in the VFL last week, but will play this weekend. – Marc McGowan

    Chad Wingard Hamstring Test
    Updated: Monday, May 7
    Early prognosis
    Forward Wingard could return for Saturday’s Showdown with Adelaide at Adelaide Oval. Wingard has missed one game with a hamstring injury. Amon will be monitored this week after he was concussed in the loss to West Coast. – Lee Gaskin

    RICHMOND
    Player

    Oleg Markov Quad 1 week
    Ben Miller Concussion Test
    Dion Prestia Calf Test
    Daniel Rioli Foot TBA
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Cotchin is all but a lock to play after missing the win over Fremantle and will be an easy replacement for Prestia, who has a sore calf but shouldn’t miss multiple weeks. Grigg looks likely to sit out again as he won’t be pushed this week after aggravating a sore hamstring from the Collingwood game at training last week. Drummond has a genuine hamstring strain and will miss around a month. – Jennifer Phelan

    Dylan Roberton Heart Season
    Shane Savage Thigh Test
    Koby Stevens Concussion Indefinite
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Acres should be back to face Fremantle on Saturday after missing the loss to Melbourne but the forward line will change again after losing Long and McCartin, who is experiencing fogginess and nausea after his whiplash incident against Melbourne. A rolled right ankle shouldn’t stop Gilbert from playing, nor should a corked thigh for Savage. – Dinny Navaratnam

    Kurt Tippett Retired
    Updated: Tuesday, May 8
    Early prognosis
    Early prognosis: Wednesday’s closed session will be a big one for Franklin and if he has any hope of playing against Hawthorn on Friday night, he’ll need to train and pull up well. Hannebery will miss another week but should be back to face Fremantle at the SCG in round nine. – Adam Curley

    Early prognosis
    The Eagles are hopeful Shuey will be back in two weeks but they are unlikely to rush the star midfielder from a hamstring tear, while Jetta’s return will be delayed by another week with the club taking a cautious approach. Youngster Brayshaw is making slow progress with his knee and is still a month away at least. – Travis King
