 Updated: Tuesday, July 20

Early prognosis

The main watch this week is on Doedee after missing Sunday’s match against West Coast. Just as he is expected back, fellow defender Murray has fallen victim to the same issue, concussed against the Eagles and out of this weekend’s match. Matt Crouch made a successful return from his groin surgery at the weekend with 28 disposals in the SANFL.  Michael Whiting

 Harry Sharp  Ankle  5 weeks
 Cam Rayner  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, July 20

Early prognosis

Neale threw a scare into the Lions after leaving training holding his right shoulder on Tuesday. However, the club says it was a “stinger” and fully expect him to play Gold Coast on Saturday. Jarrod Berry (calf) returned through a VFL scratch match on the weekend and just jogged laps on Tuesday, while Gardiner showed good signs of progress towards a return with some overhead marking to test his shoulder. – Michael Whiting

 Updated: Tuesday, July 20

Early prognosis

The Blues will give Charlie Curnow (knee) another VFL scratch match before he is considered for AFL selection. But expect both Cripps and Murphy to be rushed back this week. Key position trio CasboultMcDonald and McGovern aren’t far away. – Riley Beveridge

Updated: Tuesday, July 20

Early prognosis

Callum Brown dislocated his shoulder in the dying stages of the loss to Carlton and will undergo surgery this week that will rule him out for the remainder of the season, while Thomas has been ruled out due to concussion protocols. Hoskin-Elliott had a back spasm in the final term against the Blues and will be monitored off the short break, while Brody Mihocek will also be assessed ahead of playing the Power. Howe is hopeful of returning next weekend, while Kelly is closing in on a return. There is now a possibility Begg, who was originally expected to miss the remainder of the season, may be seen at VFL level to end the year. Further assessment of Johnson’s finger injury meant he required more surgery. – Mitch Cleary
