Ciaran Byrne Knee 10 weeks
Zac Fisher Hamstring Test
Kym Lebois Quad Test
Jack Silvagni Shoulder Test

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Adam Oxley Groin/hip 1-2 weeks
Brayden Sier Eye socket 1-2 weeks
Ben Sinclair* Hamstring 8-10 weeks
Josh Thomas Foot Test
Adam Treloar TBC Test
Travis Varcoe Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Rupert Wills Calf 1 week
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Treloar is expected to take on his old club, Greater Western Sydney, but remains in some doubt with an undisclosed injury. Varcoe will remain sidelined with his hamstring issue. Wills’ hopes of earning promotion from the VFL have been delayed by a calf problem. Sinclair is still eyeing a return in the second half of the year– Ben Collins

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Patrick Ambrose Quad 4 weeks
Mitch Brown Ankle 5-7 weeks
Jayden Laverde* Ankle 8 weeks
Alex Morgan Hamstring Test
Jordan Ridley* Back 3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Essendon is targeting round 11 as the return date for Patrick Ambrose, who injured his quad at training on the eve of the Dons’ clash with Melbourne. But they will be without Mitch Brown for a little longer as he deals with an ankle problem from that Melbourne game. They should have Jobe Watson, Andy McGrath and Ben McNeice available after being rested last week, but Jayden Laverde’s battle to play this season looks likely to continue. The Bombers have pushed back a return date from a pre-season ankle injury to about round 15, but it was a serious and rare injury that they’ll be conservative with. – Callum Twomey

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Apeness Knee TBA
Hayden Ballantyne Hamstring 1-3 weeks
Harley Bennell Calf 7 weeks
Zac Clarke* Knee TBA
Josh Deluca Groin Test
Stephen Hill Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Alex Pearce Leg TBA
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBA
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Michael Apeness has come along in his recovery from a torn posterior cruciate ligament in recent weeks and is on the verge of returning for Peel after being sidelined since mid-March. However, fears Zac Clarke won’t play at all this season are growing with no return in sight still for the big man after three bouts of surgery to his left knee since last season. – Travis King

Player

Injury

Josh Cowan Achilles soreness Test
Cory Gregson* Foot 4 weeks
Lachie Henderson Ribs Test
Timm House Hip Test
Lincoln McCarthy Groin TBC
Quinton Narkle Hamstring TBC
Brandan Parfitt* Hamstring 8-10 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Henderson was a late withdrawal from the Gold Coast game and will be tested this week. McCarthy remains on the sidelines with a frustrating injury while Scott Selwood and Jake Kolodjashnij will be back in the selection frame after several weeks in the VFL. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Callum Ah Chee Back TBC
Ben Ainsworth Quad 2 weeks
Sam Day Hip Season
Pearce Hanley Heel 1 week
Trent McKenzie Hamstring Test
Matt Rosa Head knock 1 week
Michael Rischitelli Knee Indefinite
David Swallow Knee 1 week
Rory Thompson Quad Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Thompson has missed four weeks but is back running and is some chance of making the flight to China, although the Suns may be reluctant to take the risk. Hanley is almost ready to go, but the club is likely to hold him back until after the bye so he can get more conditioning in. – Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matt Buntine Knee Season
Brett Deledio Calf TBC
Tom Downie* Illness Indefinite
Toby Greene Suspended Round nine
Ryan Griffen Ankle 6-8 weeks
Nick Haynes Hamstring 9 weeks
Jacob Hopper Finger 6 weeks
Adam Kennedy Knee Season
Tendai Mzungu Hamstring 5-7 weeks
Will Setterfield Ankle 6-8 weeks
Lachie Whitfield Suspended Round eight
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Kennedy will have his ACL repaired next week, while Hopper has already had surgery on his broken finger and joins a growing list of Giants with long-term setbacks. Sam Reid has recovered from his hamstring tightness and should be recalled to face Collingwood. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Grant Birchall Knee 3-4 weeks
Jonathon Ceglar* ACL Indefinite
Kieran Lovell Shoulder Indefinite
Teia Miles Medial ligament 3-5 weeks
Jaeger O’Meara Knee Indefinite
Jonathan O’Rourke Hamstring 8-10 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Birchall has been awfully stiff, hurting his knee in his first quarter back after a four-week absence with a broken jaw. The Hawks still have five weeks till their bye, so he should be back before then. This is the third hamstring injury this year for O’Rourke and comes just as he was in the frame for a senior game. Hawthorn’s injury list is by no means serious, but is starting to grow. – Ashley Browne

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Colin Garland* Knee Season
Max Gawn Hamstring 6-8 weeks
James Harmes Eye Test
Corey Maynard Concussion TBC
Pat McKenna Hamstring 4 weeks
Jake Melksham Suspended 1 week
Joel Smith Shoulder 5-6 weeks
Tim Smith Rib/punctured lung 3-4 weeks
Jake Spencer Shoulder 4-5 weeks
Aaron vandenBerg* Heel 6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Harmes suffered an eye injury in the VFL at the weekend and spent time in hospital on Sunday. Rookie Maynard suffered a heavy concussion, as a result of a crude bump from North Melbourne-listed forward Lindsay Thomas. Maynard also visited the hospital after he was stretchered from the field from the head-high hit. Jayden Hunt (shoulder) and Josh Wagner have been cleared to face Adelaide. – Ben Guthrie

Paul Ahern* Knee Season
Majak Daw Quadriceps Test
Taylor Garner Hamstring Test
Ben Jacobs Foot Test
Oscar Junker Broken tibia 4-6 weeks
Ben McKay Groin/hip 1-2 weeks
Aaron Mullett Broken hand Test

Jarrad Waite Suspended Available round nine
Sam Wright Ankle 3-5 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Ben Brown hurt his shoulder against Adelaide, but returned to the field – with heavy strapping – to kick two goals and should face Sydney on Sunday. Jy Simpkin was managed last week and will be available. Garner and Mullett face fitness tests, but are good chances to return. Jacobs and Daw will return through the VFL if they play this weekend, while Andrew Swallow has recovered from a bout of gastro that sidelined him. Waite and Thomas were suspended for engaging in rough conduct charges at AFL and VFL level respectively. – Marc McGowan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

No injuries
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Every player on the Power’s list is available for selection with Nathan Krakouer (foot), Matthew White (hamstring) and rookie-listed ruckman Peter Ladhams (general soreness) overcoming minor injuries. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Nathan Broad* Shoulder 3 weeks
Reece Conca Foot 4-5 weeks
Nathan Drummond Knee Season
Shane Edwards Hip Test
Jack Graham* Ankle 4-5 weeks
Ben Griffiths Concussion Indefinite
Shaun Hampson* Back Indefinite
Dion Prestia Hamstring Test
Nick Vlastuin Shoulder 3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Scans have revealed a small fracture in Vlastuin’s shoulder after a fresh injury on Saturday night, with rest required. Prestia’s hamstring soreness could sideline him for one more match, depending on his response at training this week. The Tigers say he is a “50-50” proposition. Edwards will ramp up his training this week and is a chance to return, while Conca has had his minimum time on the sidelines increased to four weeks. – Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin TBC
Josh Battle Knee TBC
Tom Hickey Knee 4-6 weeks
Koby Stevens Suspension Round nine
Maverick Weller Ankle Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Weller rolled an ankle last week and while he was on the track on Tuesday, he didn’t join in full training. Ruckman Hickey has a medial injury in his left knee after being injured in the VFL last Saturday. Dinny Navaratnam

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Shaun Edwards Shoulder 2 weeks
Kieren Jack Hip 1 week
Alex Johnson* Knee Indefinite
Jeremy Laidler Achilles TBC
Dane Rampe Arm 2 weeks
Dan Robinson Collarbone Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

Kurt Tippett was extremely close to playing last week but didn’t quite do enough before selection to warrant a recall, but has been cleared to play against North Melbourne, with Gary Rohan also back after recovering from his heavy fall in round six against Carlton. Kieren Jack misses another game but if all goes well with his training, he should be right for round nine. Dan Robinson has been cleared to play but has to get through his contact work at training before he’s picked. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Jamie Cripps Ankle 6 weeks
Liam Duggan Thigh Test
Scott Lycett* Shoulder 4-5 weeks
Kurt Mutimer Knee TBC
Nic Naitanui* Knee Late 2017 season

Willie Rioli Hamstring 2 weeks
Simon Tunbridge Knee Mid-late 2017 season
Nathan Vardy Elbow Test
Jake Waterman Foot Indefinite
Francis Watson Ankle 3-5 weeks
Updated: Thursday, May 4

Early prognosis

It was mostly positive news for the Eagles this week, with Nathan Vardy escaping serious injury and named to face Port, while pressure forward Jamie Cripps is tracking well from his ankle complaint. Cripps is out of the moon boot and was walking with a slight limp at training on Monday but has had a week shaved off his recovery timeframe. Sam Mitchell and Andrew Gaff were on light duties with sore ankles but aren’t listed on the official injury list, either is Kurt Mutimer who hurt his knee on debut and didn’t train Monday. Liam Duggan is also right to face Port after suffering a corked thigh. – Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Travis Cloke Broken ribs 1-2 weeks
Josh Dunkley Shoulder 12-14 weeks
Patrick Lipinski Collarbone 3-4 weeks
Brad Lynch Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Dale Morris Leg 1-2 weeks
Jordan Roughead Hamstring Test
Roarke Smith Knee Season
Jake Stringer Knee 2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 9

Early prognosis

The Dogs were relieved Jake Stringer has avoided a dreaded ACL tear, but the dynamic forward probably won’t be seen until after the club’s bye in round 11. The club is hopeful Josh Dunkley will return by the end of the home and away season after his shoulder injury sustained against Richmond. Jordan Roughead is likely to play in the VFL this week in his return from a serious hamstring injury. Veterans Travis Cloke and Dale Morris have returned to training on a modified program and the key duo could be available for the round nine clash against Geelong. – Ryan Davidson

      1. Joel. Was in a moon boot after the game. Happened in the 3rd quarter hence the slow down in his scores on the weekend.
