 Ned McHenry  Managed  Test
 Andrew McPherson  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Wayne Milera  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Ayce Taylor  Hamstring  Season
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

Improving youngster McPherson will miss at a few weeks with a hamstring strain he suffered against the Bulldogs on Sunday. It adds to the Crows’ hamstring woes with a number of their key players hit by soft-tissue concerns. Crouch is still a week or two away after his slip up at home, while Lynch is the same with his injury. Hamill will be unavailable for at least another week after his second concussion of the season. – Callum Twomey

Brisbane Lions

 Marcus Adams  Foot  2 weeks
 Stefan Martin  Back  4 weeks
 Connor McFadyen  Knee  Season
 Cameron Rayner  Hamstring  Test
 Archie Smith  Ankle  3 weeks
 Updated: Wednesday, August 19

Early prognosis

After just missing out on playing last week, Rayner is expected to return for Sunday’s match against St Kilda – providing he gets through training on Thursday. Daniel Rich will also return from suspension. Smith is making nice progress from his ankle injury, jogging laps at Lions training on Tuesday. – Michael Whiting


 David Cuningham  Calf  Test
 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Brodie Kemp  Knee  Season
 Matthew Kennedy  Quad  Test
 Matthew Kreuzer  Foot  3-5 weeks

 Mitch McGovern  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Nic Newman  Knee  Season
 Marc Pittonet  Finger  Test
 Ben Silvagni  Shoulder  Season
 Jack Silvagni  Knee  3-5 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

The Blues could regain three injured players for a trip to Darwin to face the Suns on Friday night, with the club confident Cuningham, Martin and Pittonet will return. However, Kennedy is a chance to miss due to a corkie. Meanwhile, McGovern remains the best part of a month away. Don’t expect to see Kreuzer or Jack Silvagni again this season, while Ben Silvagni has been sent for a shoulder reconstruction. – Riley Beveridge


 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Jordan De Goey  Finger  4-6 weeks
 Jeremy Howe  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Will Kelly  Elbow  Season
 Brody Mihocek  Concussion  Test
 Isaac Quaynor  Shin  1 week
 Ben Reid  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Jordan Roughead  Concussion  Test
 Brayden Sier  Quad  4-5 weeks
 Adam Treloar  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

The injury list is stacking up at the Pies, with Mihocek and Reid failing to finish last weekend’s defeat to the Demons. However, Mihocek has been cleared of concussion as well as any neck/head/shoulder damage and is a chance this week. Quaynor could also face the Kangaroos on Monday night, but time is running out for De Goey, Howe and Sier to return to help the side’s finals push. Treloar is the best part of a month away. – Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

 Patrick Ambrose  Foot  Indefinite
 Tom Bellchambers  Managed  Test
 Ned Cahill  Quad  3-4 weeks
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Indefinite
 Orazio Fantasia  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Aaron Francis  Managed  Test
 Dyson Heppell  Ankle  Indefinite
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season
 Cale Hooker  Calf  1 week
 Lachlan Johnson  Knee  Indefinite
 Jayden Laverde  Ankle  4-5 weeks
 Mason Redman  Managed  Test
 Devon Smith  Managed  Test
 Jake Stringer  Ankle  Test
 David Zaharakis  Quad  Season
Updated: Wednesday, August 19

Early prognosis

The Bombers are hoping to regain star goalkicker Stringer for Saturday’s clash with Richmond in Darwin in what would be a major boost to their forward line. The Bulldogs premiership player has to pass a test but is considered a good chance to play. Smith was managed last week so would be expected to return, while Redman, Francis and Bellchambers are also likely to be available. But returns for Hooker and Fantasia have been pushed back as the club takes a cautious approach with their soft-tissue concerns. – Callum Twomey


 Jason Carter  Suspension  5 games
 Travis Colyer  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  Season
 Griffin Logue  Toe  4-6 weeks
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  Season
 Sam Sturt  Ankle  Season
 Sam Switkowski  Back  4-6 weeks
 Darcy Tucker  Hamstring  Season
 Hayden Young  Ankle  Season
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

There were no fresh injuries following the after-the-siren loss to Carlton. Michael Walters has pulled up well following his return from a hamstring injury, while Stefan Giro got through his reserves comeback unscathed on limited minutes after an ACL tear and then ankle syndesmosis setback. He will now play a full game in their next reserves clash. Carter has been given a club-imposed five-game ban after being charged with drink driving.  Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

 Gary Ablett  Personal  Indefinite
 Luke Dahlhaus  Foot  Available
 Darcy Fort  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Cam Guthrie  Soreness  Test
 Jake Kolodjashnij  Corked thigh  Test
 Esava Ratugolea  Soreness  Test
 Sam Simpson  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
Updated: Wednesday, August 19

Early prognosis

Ratugolea was spotted at scans last week, and while the Cats were hopeful he’d play against Port Adelaide, was withdrawn from selection due to adductor soreness. He will come into the frame to play Adelaide should he pass full training later this week. Dahlhaus has made rapid progress from his foot injury and played reduced minutes in the Cats’ scratch match last week. Guthrie missed a large portion of training on Monday, while Kolodjashnij is expected to be right after a heavy collision in the win over Port Adelaide. Fort is clocking big sessions running in a bid to return. Jack Steven will be in the frame after he was rested against the Power. – Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

 George Horlin-Smith  Foot  Test
 Mitch Riordan  Knee  Season
 Matt Rowell  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Josh Schoenfeld  Foot  1-2 weeks
Updated: Wednesday, August 19

Early prognosis

The Suns’ excellent season with injuries rolls on with no new problems from Monday night’s loss to Richmond. Co-captain David Swallow and veteran Jarrod Harbrow will return to play Carlton on Friday night after being rested. – Michael Whiting

GWS Giants

 Isaac Cumming  Hamstring  1 week
 Phil Davis  Knee  Test
 Matt de Boer  Hamstring  1 week
 Toby Greene  Hamstring  Test
 Tom Hutcheson  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Daniel Lloyd  Finger  Test
 Sam Reid  Calf  1week
 Sam Taylor  Back  TBC
Updated: Monday, August 17

Early prognosis

The Giants expect Greene to be back from his hamstring injury to face the Eagles this week in what will be a massive boost. Davis missed last week with a minor knee injury but is also hopeful of a return, while Lloyd is tipped to be available after a fractured finger. Last week’s debutant Hutchesson will miss at least a couple of weeks after sustaining a low-grade hamstring train. – Callum Twomey


 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Ricky Henderson  Knee  2 weeks
 Harry Jones  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Jaeger O’Meara  Hand  1-2 weeks
 James Sicily  Knee  Season
 Isaac Smith  Shoulder  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

Scans on Monday morning confirmed Sicily sustained a right ACL rupture late in Sunday night’s loss to West Coast in a devastating blow for the Hawks. He’ll miss the rest of this season and likely most, if not all, of the 2021 campaign. O’Meara suffered a broken hand in the same game and is out of at least Saturday’s clash with Port Adelaide, while emerging onballer Jones sustained an MCL setback in the earlier scratch game. There’s still some uncertainty around Smith’s return. Shaun Burgoyne returned from a week off with hamstring tightness against the Eagles, while Jon Patton (hamstring) resumed in a scratch game from his five-week layoff. – Marc McGowan


 Max Gawn  Knee  Test
 Marty Hore  Quad/Toe  Indefinite
 Luke Jackson  Hamstring  4-6 weeks
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Alex Neal-Bullen  Suspension  2 matches
 Harry Petty  Groin  Indefinite
 Braydon Preuss  Hip  Test
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
Updated: Wednesday, August 19

Early prognosis

Gawn’s now missed the Demons’ past two matches, with his PCL issue seemingly the only issue now, after previously also dealing with a tear at the back of his shoulder. Melbourne is hopeful he will return to face the Western Bulldogs on Saturday. However, back-up big man Preuss left the training track early on Wednesday with hip soreness. That follows first-year ruckman Jackson suffering a hamstring setback at training last week. Jack Viney (concussion) and Jay Lockhart (corked thigh) returned to the senior side in Saturday’s win over Collingwood after one-game absences. Corey Wagner returned from a fractured wrist in Friday’s scratch game against the Magpies’ reserves. – Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

 Aiden Bonar  AC joint  3-4 weeks
 Ben Brown  Knee  Test
 Charlie Comben  Back  Indefinite
 Ben Cunnington  Back  Season
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Kyron Hayden  Managed  Test
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  Indefinite
 Jamie Macmillan  Personal  Indefinite
 Robbie Tarrant  Corked calf  Test
 Curtis Taylor  Knee  2 weeks
 Tarryn Thomas  Ankle  Season
 Kayne Turner  Toe/Sesamoid  Indefinite
 Dom Tyson  Calf  2 weeks
 Will Walker  Hamstring  TBC
 Jack Ziebell  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

Cunnington was ruled out for the season last week, with his back injury still causing weakness in his quadriceps and referred issues with his hip flexor. The newest setback was to Walker’s right hamstring, in another disappointment for the third-year player who was starting to build form. He had a scan on Tuesday and is awaiting the results. Tarrant was a late withdrawal against Brisbane and will look to return against Collingwood on Monday. Brown and Hayden were close to returning at the weekend, but have now both missed multiple matches. Ziebell and Garner are both aiming to rejoin the main training group within the next week. Tyson hasn’t been able to step up his training and remains at least another fortnight off, while Turner remains without a return date. However, Taylor hopes to be out of his knee brace soon. – Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

 Ryan Burton  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Brad Ebert  Concussion  Test
 Todd Marshall  Thumb  1-2 weeks
 Connor Rozee  Heel  1 week
 Dylan Williams  Groin  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

The Power are taking a cautious approach with Ebert’s return from concussion, but he could be in the frame to play the Hawks on Saturday. Rozee is unlikely to feature once again, while Burton and Marshall are still likely a fortnight away. – Riley Beveridge


 David Astbury  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Callum Coleman-Jones  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season
 Shane Edwards  Personal  Indefinite
 Ryan Garthwaite  Groin  Test
 Toby Nankervis  Ankle  Test
 Bigoa Nyuon  Shoulder  Season
 Dion Prestia  Ankle  2-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

The Tigers suffered no new injuries from Monday night’s win over Gold Coast. Bachar Houli didn’t play despite completing his two weeks of quarantine, but should return to face the Bombers. Nankervis will also be in the mix, but Prestia remains a couple of weeks away in his recovery from an ankle syndesmosis injury. Astbury is still recovering from his knee setback and hasn’t resumed training. The club is hopeful Edwards will join the group in early September, which means he’ll be available in the final round of the home and away season after completing his 14 days of quarantine. – Ben Sutton

St Kilda

 Nathan Brown  Personal leave  Indefinite
 Luke Dunstan  Pectoral muscle  4-8 weeks
 Jade Gresham  Back  5-10 weeks
 Dan Hannebery  Hamstring  4-6 weeks
 Jack Mayo  Knee  Season
 Ben Paton  Concussion  Test
 Seb Ross  Calf  Test
 Jimmy Webster  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
Updated: Wednesday, August 19

Early prognosis

Gresham has returned to Melbourne to continue his rehabilitation. It now appears likely he’ll return again this season with another assessment to be completed on the eve of finals. Paton will be monitored after missing the bulk of Sunday’s win over Essendon through concussion early in the match. Webster remains at least a week away from re-joining any match minutes. Jake Carlisle and Dean Kent are expected to come back into the frame after they were managed against the Bombers. – Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

 Kaiden Brand  Groin  2 weeks
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  Indefinite
 Isaac Heeney  Ankle  Season
 George Hewett  Back  Season
 Josh Kennedy  Knee  2 weeks
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Dane Rampe  Hand  Season
 Harry Reynolds  Shoulder  Season
 Ben Ronke  Back  Season
 Ryley Stoddart  Back  Season
 Elijah Taylor  Suspension  Season
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

Rampe won’t play again in 2020, after a scan on Monday revealed he had re-broken his right hand and the plate inserted in it had dislodged. The 2016 All-Australian had played four matches since breaking the hand against Hawthorn and undergoing surgery. The Swans have also ruled out Hewett, Ronke and Stoddart for the rest of the season, while it’s increasingly unlikely Franklin will return this year. Taylor is also out for the season after his COVID-19 breach last week, but Kennedy and Brand are pushing to get back. – Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

 Liam Duggan  Hamstring  Test
 Mark Hutchings  Toe  Test
 Jamaine Jones  Hamstring  Season
 Mitch O’Neill  Back  6 weeks
 Jack Petruccelle  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Jack Redden  Adductor  1-2 weeks
 Will Schofield  Elbow  2-3 weeks
 Nathan Vardy  Thigh  5-6 weeks
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
 Jake Waterman  Hand  2-3 weeks
 Francis Watson  Knee  Season
 Elliot Yeo  Groin  2-3 weeks
Updated: Wednesday, August 19

Early prognosis

The injuries are mounting up at the Eagles as they prepare to kickstart a run of five games in 19 days on Sunday. Yeo has shown signs of osteitis pubis and was removed from last week’s win over Hawthorn. The Eagles are hopeful it is only 2-3 weeks but aware it could quickly escalate. Hutchings and Duggan, who wasn’t risks against the Hawks, will be pushing for selection. Redden sat out the last quarter but has suffered a strain that will rule him out against the Giants. Waterman and Schofield have both undergone surgery after training setbacks. Vardy’s corked thigh quickly worsened to compartment syndrome and required surgery to release a build-up of blood that created a sizeable wound. – Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

 Zaine Cordy  Chest  2-3 weeks
 Hayden Crozier  Toe  Test
 Taylor Duryea  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Tim English  Ankle  Test
 Jason Johannisen  Ankle  Test
 Lin Jong  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Matt Suckling  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Tuesday, August 18

Early prognosis

Johannisen looks likely to return from a minor ankle injury, as do the managed duo of Josh Bruce and Laitham Vandermeer. Crozier and Suckling will be in the mix, but English will have to prove his ankle is right later this week. Fergus Greene (hand) and Josh Schache  (groin) both played in a scratch match over the weekend. – Jourdan Canil
