 Tom Lynch  Toe  3-4 weeks
 Wayne Milera  Knee  Season
 Lachlan Murphy  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Daniel Talia  Foot  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, June 22

Early prognosis

The best news for the Crows coming off their bye is the return of Luke Brown from an achilles injury. Murphy is also exceeding expectations after ankle surgery and should be back a week sooner than initially expected. Crouch has also resumed running following groin surgery, but is still another six weeks away from playing again.  Michael Whiting

 Ely Smith  Ankle  2-4 weeks
 Cam Rayner  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, June 22

Early prognosis

It was hoped Berry and Ellis-Yolmen would return through the VFL last week, but a slight delay for both means they should come back this weekend. Berry has missed considerable time with a groin problem, but ran well at Tuesday’s training session. – Michael Whiting

Early prognosis

The Blues should have Gibbons available for selection this week, but Plowman will miss again while Setterfield is still another fortnight away. Parks hurt his back in Saturday night’s defeat to the Giants and will have to undergo a fitness test later this week, while new mid-season recruit Mirkov went down with a knee injury in the VFL and will miss the next month. Curnow is around six weeks away from a comeback after two years out of the game, while McGovern is also closing on a return. But Casboult is suspended for this weekend’s fixtures after picking up a ban in the VFL. – Riley Beveridge

 Nathan Murphy  Corked quad  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 22

Early prognosis

The Pies have declared Brodie Grundy fit to return from the neck injury he sustained against Geelong in round 11. Adams, however, is still facing a fitness test in order to prove he’s over the knee injury he sustained against Port Adelaide in round 10. Murphy is still a test but appeared to be moving freely at training on Tuesday morning. Moore will be in a brace for at least the next six weeks meaning he’s all but certain to miss the remainder of the season. – Mitch Cleary

Updated: Tuesday, June 22

 Paul Tsapatolis  Thumb  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 22

Early prognosis

Duncan has avoided surgery but will likely miss the rest of the home and away season with his high-grade PCL injury. Hawkins should be right to face the Lions off the six-day break, however will still need to be monitored after his neck injury sustained in the final term against the Western Bulldogs. Henderson is all but certain to return after he was a late out against the Dogs.  Mitch Cleary

In better news, No.7 draft pick Elijah Hollands got through his first game in almost 16 months when he helped the VFL team to a win after overcoming an ACL injury. Collins will be given at least another week to overcome an ankle problem. – Michael Whiting

Scans will determine the extent of Schofield’s hamstring injury, which he suffered in the SANFL. Butters is back running but the Power are reluctant to put a timeframe on his return. Fantasia has been expected to become available this week but his timeframe to return has been pushed out. – Nathan Schmook

Updated: Tuesday, June 22

Early prognosis

CampbellGulden and Warner are being held back to give them more time to recover from soreness related to stress reactions. Hayward was subbed out with concussion against Hawthorn but might not miss a match as he had the bye period to recover, however, Wicks will miss the clash with Port Adelaide after being suspended for a high bump.
