General Manager of Football Simon Lloyd reports –
Patrick Dangerfield “Patty did the full session and he’s functioning well. Again, we need the final tick-off from our medical team, but I expect him to be very close to being available,”
Esava Ratugolea “Esava could’ve played last week – he was very close to playing – and (I) expect Esava to be available (for selection) this week.”
Jeremy Cameron is working through concussion protocols.“Obviously it was a very big hit on Thursday night, and Jezza’s being managed – and managed really well – by our medical team,” “He’s now gone into the concussion protocols, and we’ll be guided by our medical team on his progress. He’ll be assessed throughout the week.”
Jonathon Ceglar ankle injury. “Obviously initially Jonathon had an adductor injury, and the adductor has improved (but) the ankle is sore. He’s done some Alt-G work, and he’ll commence on-field running (on Tuesday), so hopefully he improves over the coming week,”
Sam Simpson tendon injury.“He had surgery last Thursday, and Sam is back in at the club and he will commence running fairly soon,” .“It is unfortunate for Sam, but he’s put in a good period of football, and he’ll be back in no time.”
Cam Guthrie toe surgery. “Cam is in really good spirits – he was in (Monday) morning doing weights. He’s out of the moonboot this Friday, which is great, so he’ll start weight-bearing on that foot, and before we know it, hopefully, he’ll be running.”

Michael Hibberd kidney TBC
“Unfortunately for Michael, during one of the early contests in the game he suffered an injury to his lower ribs,”
“Following further imaging, it’s shown that he has minor damage to his kidney, which will require him to be limited from contact for a short-term period to allow healing.
“Once we get clearance from the medical professionals we’ve been consulting with, he’ll re-integrate into contest work.”

Head of Physiotherapy and Medical Services Damian Raper –
Lance’s rehab on his knee continues to progress. He will aim to train this week and we will test his availability to play Geelong this weekend.
Peter’s running volume and speed work has increased over the last fortnight. He commenced change of direction work last week and will be introduced into team training next week.
Matt began skills training last week and has continued to build his conditioning running over the past few weeks, with the intention of integrating him into full training in the coming weeks.
Will was a late withdrawal against the West Coast Eagles due to illness. He will be available for selection this weekend against Geelong.
Cooper did not complete the VFL match against Brisbane Lions. Investigations last week revealed he has a bone stress injury in his metatarsal. He will spend a period of time in a boot until his pain settles.
Shannon Hurn and Jamie Cripps are in the mix to make their comebacks from injury against St Kilda on Sunday.
Jack Williams (ankle) and Jordyn Baker (hamstring) are also tests to play this weekend, however Jeremy McGovern is at least one more week away.
The Eagles hope to regain defender Tom Cole (ankle), ruck Callum Jamieson (hip), backman Luke Foley (hamstring), forward Isiah Winder (knee) and midfielder Greg Clark (foot) in coming weeks.
Elliot Yeo, who is set to miss three-to-four weeks due to a hip concern sustained late Sydney game.
Jake Waterman has been diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease that has put his season in doubt while he undergoes further testing and treatment
Liam Ryan is looking more unlikely than likely to return this year following hamstring surgery.
“Liam has had a number of investigations and review with specialists because he hasn’t progressed as we would’ve liked, so we’re collating all that information and we’ll put that together over the next week or two and make the next phase for Liam’s progress from there,”
