Injury List


Adelaide Crows

 Brad Crouch  Hamstring  2-3 weeks

 Jordan Gallucci  Achilles  Season
 Ned McHenry  Ribs  Test
 Wayne Milera  Foot  3 weeks
 Rory Sloane  Hand  2-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 28

Early prognosis

The watch will be on stand-in captain Doedee this week as he hopes to overcome a very minor hamstring injury from last week. Whether the Crows risk the defender with a block of games coming up might be another question. McHenry was sore last week so was managed but is available to be picked this week, while Fogarty is also ready to return from his absence due to a shoulder injury. Crouch will miss 2-3 weeks with his regular hamstring injury.  Callum Twomey

Brisbane Lions

 Marcus Adams  Foot  3 weeks
 Grant Birchall  Managed  TBC
 Ryan Lester  Hamstring  1 week
 Stefan Martin  Back  6 weeks
 Connor McFadyen  Knee  Season
 Dan McStay  Suspended  1 matche
 Daniel Rich  Hamstring  1 week
 Archie Smith  Ankle  5 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

Following Tuesday night’s match against Richmond, the Lions are expecting a few players back to play the Western Bulldogs on Saturday night. McStay will return from suspension, Birchall will be available after a rest and both Rich and Lester are expected to put their hand up depending on training in the next few days. – Michael Whiting


 David Cuningham  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Paddy Dow  Knee  Test
 Hugh Goddard  Hamstring  Test

 Matthew Kreuzer  Foot  1-3 weeks
 Caleb Marchbank  Knee  Test
 Mitch McGovern  Hamstring  Test
 Nic Newman  Knee  Season
 Jack Silvagni  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

The Blues could lose Cuningham for the next fortnight, having sustained a calf setback in last Friday’s defeat to the Hawks. Silvagni will also miss much of the next month due to a knee injury. There is better news for Marchbank and Dow, who will likely return via a scratch match on Sunday. McGovern will undergo a fitness test, but the club is confident he will be available to meet the Eagles after missing one match with a hamstring injury. – Riley Beveridge


 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Callum Brown  Ankle  Test
 Jordan De Goey  Finger  7-9 weeks
 Levi Greenwood  Knee  Test
 Jeremy Howe  Knee  7-9 weeks
 Will Kelly  Elbow  Season
 Tom Langdon  Knee  Indefinite
 Scott Pendlebury  Quad  1-2 weeks
Updated: Monday, August 3

Early prognosis

Collingwood practice matches are about to get a lot more competitive. Tom Langdon finally returned from a long-term knee injury through a scratch match last weekend, while Greenwood is expected to also return from an ACL injury this week. Brown is battling an ankle injury, but also made it through a scratch match last Sunday. A four-day break will make Thursday night’s clash with Sydney too soon for Pendlebury– Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

 Patrick Ambrose  Foot  Indefinite
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Indefinite
 Orazio Fantasia  Calf  3-4 weeks
 Dyson Heppell  Ankle  Indefinite
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season

 Lachie Johnson  Knee  Indefinite
 Harrison Jones  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Kyle Langford  Suspension  1 match
 Jayden Laverde  Ankle  6-8 weeks
 Jake Stringer  Ankle  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 28

Early prognosis

Laverde faces two months on the sidelines after requiring ankle surgery. The Bombers will also be without Fantasia for three to four weeks as he battles another soft-tissue injury. Dylan Shiel will return from suspension, most likely to replace the suspended Langford, but Hooker remains a couple of weeks away. Stringer, too, is at least a month away from returning from his ankle injury. The Bombers’ forward half continues to get hit by injury concerns, which has been a recurring issue over the past couple of seasons.  Callum Twomey


 James Aish  Concussion  Test
 Stefan Giro  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  Season
 Stephen Hill  Adductor  Test
 Jesse Hogan  Calf  Test
 Griffin Logue  Toe  6-8 weeks
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  Season
 Sam Sturt  Ankle  TBC
 Sam Switkowski  Back  6-8 weeks
 Darcy Tucker  Hamstring  Season
 Michael Walters  Hamstring  1 week
 Hayden Young  Ankle  Season
Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

After missing the impressive win against his old side Collingwood with concussion, Aish is a test for next Monday’s clash with Hawthorn. Hogan and Hill are also chances to take on the Hawks, but star midfielder Walters will miss another week with his hamstring injury. Sturt‘s ankle concern has blown out from 1-2 weeks to TBC, while Hamling has finally been ruled out for the season along with gun draftee Young Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

 Gary Ablett  Personal  Indefinite
 Tom Atkins  Ribs  Test
 Jordan Clark  Shoulder  4-8 weeks
 Luke Dahlhaus  Foot  4-5 weeks
 Darcy Fort  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Tom Hawkins  Suspension  1 match
 Josh Jenkins  Back  Test
 Quinton Narkle  Hamstring  Test
 Joel Selwood  Hamstring  Test
 Rhys Stanley  Knee  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 28

Early prognosis

Geelong is refusing to link foot injuries to Dahlhaus and Fort to the surface at Optus Stadium, despite both pulling up sore following the loss to Collingwood in round seven. Dahlhaus has bone stress in his heel and Fort in his foot and will miss considerable time. Atkins has overcome his rib cartilage damage and will re-join main training on Thursday. Jenkins is still yet to play a scratch match in Geelong colours, but is increasing his training loads and is expected to play game minutes this week. Selwood and Narkle are tests to play the Eagles, with the skipper the more likely of the two. Stanley has already been ruled out of a date with Nic Naitanui but could play North Melbourne on August 5. – Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

 George Horlin-Smith  Foot  1 week
 Mitch Riordan  Knee  Season
 Matt Rowell  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Rory Thompson  Knee  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

One positive for the Suns coming from Sunday’s loss to GWS was no fresh injuries. It continues one of the best streaks the club has had on the injury front. Thompson is inching closer to a return and could make his way back through the reserves in the next week or so. – Michael Whiting

GWS Giants

 Isaac Cumming  Hamstring  6-8 weeks
 Matt de Boer  Hamstring  2-3 games
 Toby Greene  Hamstring  2-3 games
 Sam Reid  Calf  1 week
 Sam Taylor  Back  TBC
Updated: Monday, August 3

Early prognosis

Greene pinged his hamstring late in the first quarter of the game against Gold Coast. De Boer came off in the dying seconds of the game, also with a hamstring. Both have been ruled out for 2-3 games, which could include the first two matches of their WA stint, starting with a clash with the Swans on Thursday, August 13. – Callum Twomey


 Shaun Burgoyne  Hamstring  Test
 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Ricky Henderson  Knee  4 weeks
 Jon Patton  Hamstring  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

The Hawks are suddenly close to full health, with Luke Breust (jaw), Jon Ceglar (toe), Tim O’Brien (ankle) and Jarman Impey (knee) all returning to the senior side on Friday night. However, they may have to play Monday night’s Fremantle clash without Burgoyne, who left the game for good against Carlton early in the final term with a tight hamstring. Hawthorn officially placed Henderson on the long-term injury list, which enabled it to promote category B rookie Changkuoth Jiath, and he won’t be eligible to play again until round 15. – Marc McGowan


 Marty Hore  Quad/Toe  Indefinite
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Harry Petty  Groin  Indefinite
 Kozzy Pickett  Ankle  1 match
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
 Aaron vandenBerg  Cheekbone  Test
Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

First-year forward Pickett will miss Wednesday’s clash with the Crows with ankle swelling but is expected to be fit for Sunday’s game against North Melbourne. Captain Max Gawn has declared himself fit to play against Adelaide on Wednesday night despite undergoing a scan on a soft-tissue complaint. In further good news, vandenBerg has recovered well from cheekbone surgery and could return after two games out. – Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

 Charlie Comben  Back/Knee  TBC
 Ben Cunnington  Back  TBC
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  TBC
 Nick Larkey  Ankle  Test
 Curtis Taylor  Knee  3 weeks
 Tarryn Thomas  Ankle  Season
 Kayne Turner  Toe/Sesamoid  TBC
 Dom Tyson  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Jack Ziebell  Hamstring  3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

The Roos are looking healthier these days but are dealing with some significant outs, including Taylor joining that list this week. Larkey also hurt an ankle against Adelaide on Saturday but could play. There is still no real progress for Cunnington, whose back problem is now a neural issue that has caused a weakening of his quad muscles and referred issues with his hip flexor. There’s a chance he won’t play again in 2020. However, draftee Flynn Perez (knee) is off the injury list and could have played in recent weeks if there were scratch games available. – Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

 Ryan Burton  Quad  TBC
 Brad Ebert  Concussion  1 week
 Scott Lycett  Knee  1 week
 Todd Marshall  Thumb  5-6 weeks
 Steven Motlop  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Cam Sutcliffe  Hamstring  1 week
Updated: Monday, August 3

Early prognosis

Port Adelaide will be without Ebert for a Monday night clash with the Western Bulldogs, as the veteran midfielder battles a concussion. There is still mystery around the timeframe for Burton’s return as he continues to struggle with a quad problem, but Lycett and Sutcliffe should return to the fold soon. – Riley Beveridge


 David Astbury  Knee  1-3 weeks
 Josh Caddy  Hamstring  1 week
 Callum Coleman-Jones  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season
 Shane Edwards  Personal  Indefinite
 Ryan Garthwaite  Groin  1-3 weeks
 Bachar Houli  Personal  Round 12
 Will Martyn  Foot  2-4 weeks
 Toby Nankervis  Ankle  3-5 weeks
 Bigoa Nyuon  Shoulder  Season
 Dion Prestia  Ankle  3-5 weeks
Updated: Monday, August 3

Early prognosis

The Tigers will regain Vlastuin for Tuesday night’s clash against Brisbane, while Caddy is eyeing Saturday’s match against Port Adelaide for his return. Astbury remains on limited duties with his knee issue, but Houli will be out of quarantine and available to play in round 12. Nankervis and Prestia are still a few weeks away, while youngster Coleman-Jones has a minor stress reaction in his third metatarsal. – Ben Sutton

St Kilda

 Josh Battle  Cheekbone  Test
 Nathan Brown  Personal leave  Indefinite
 Luke Dunstan  Pectoral muscle  6-8 weeks
 Dan Hannebery  Hamstring  8-12 weeks
 Ben Long  Suspension  1 match
 Jack Mayo  Knee  Season
 Jimmy Webster  Hamstring  4-5 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 28

Early prognosis

Hannebery’s season is hanging by a thread after he returned to Melbourne for surgery to repair the tendon on his troublesome hamstring. He re-injured it while running at training last Friday. Given recovery from the same surgery typically takes a minimum eight weeks, he isn’t expected to be seen until finals at the earliest. Webster’s hamstring is less serious but will cost him a month of training. Battle will need to be cleared after missing the win over Port Adelaide with a minor facial fracture. Brown has returned home from the hub to be with his family. – Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

 Kaiden Brand  Groin  3-4 weeks
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Isaac Heeney  Ankle  Season
 George Hewett  Back  6-8 weeks
 Josh Kennedy  Knee  3-4 weeks
 Michael Knoll  Knee  Test
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Colin O’Riordan  Hip  Test
 Dane Rampe  Hand  Test
 Harry Reynolds  Shoulder  Season
 Ben Ronke  Back  4-5 weeks
 Ryley Stoddart  Back  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

Rampe made it through last week’s game after surgery on his broken hand and he should be fine to play the Pies despite it still being a bit sore. O’Riordan is a chance to return after missing the past fortnight, while Knoll hopes to compete in a scrimmage match this weekend after eight weeks out. However, untried youngster Reynolds badly dislocated his left shoulder in one of those contests at the weekend and faces up to four months’ rehabilitation. He will undergo surgery on Thursday and his season is over. Hewett is as many as two months away, after having an operation to ease the pressure in his back caused by a sciatic nerve problem. – Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

 Brendon Ah Chee  Back  Test
 Jamaine Jones  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Mitch O’Neill  Back  Indefinite
 Jeremy McGovern  Thumb  Test
 Jack Petruccelle  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Nathan Vardy  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
 Francis Watson  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 28

Early prognosis

McGovern will need to prove he’s over a fractured thumb at main training on Wednesday. The star defender was a late withdrawal for the win over Collingwood after sustaining the injury in the round seven Western Derby win. Mark Hutchings also played his first minutes since the restart in a scratch match against Collingwood on Sunday evening. Watson ruptured his ACL while changing direction running last week at training and will undergo season-ending surgery. Vardy tweaked his ankle in last week’s scratch match against Collingwood. O’Neill has returned to Perth from Tasmania and will re-join his teammates next week after serving quarantine to continue his recovery.  Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

 Bailey Dale  Ankle  1 week
 Tory Dickson  Quad  Test
 Taylor Duryea  Quad  3-4 weeks
 Lachie Hunter  Personal  Indefinite
 Lin Jong  Ankle  3-4 weeks
 Aaron Naughton  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Callum Porter  Shoulder  Test
 Josh Schache  Concussion  Test
 Matt Suckling  Hamstring  4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 4

Early prognosis

Naughton is in the mix to return against the Lions in round 11 or Adelaide the following week. Hunter has been playing as an inside midfielder in scratch matches, but Luke Beveridge is not considering him for selection at the moment as he deals with a personal matter. Garcia played limited minutes in his scratch match return but got through unscathed. – Jourdan Canil

    1. Clear of injury just, surprisingly, yet to work his way back into the team. Ainsworth, Brander, Edwards and Rotham have been getting game time ahead of him. I honestly rate him ahead of all of those four, it seems we have plenty of outside depth rn. We’ll [Eagles] also be fresh off the bye and therefore won’t have have to rest anyone, so I doubt Brander returns.
