Written by Huttabito on August 25 2020

Adelaide Crows

 Will Hamill  Concussion  TBC
 Tom Lynch  Hamstring  1 week
 Shane McAdam  Hamstring  TBC
 Andrew McPherson  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Wayne Milera  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Daniel Talia  Knee  Test
 Ayce Taylor  Hamstring  Season
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Talia was ruled out last week against Geelong with a knee issue but will be expected to be available when the Crows play next Tuesday after this round’s bye. A couple of other Crows could be close, too, with Crouch recovering from his hamstring and McPherson too getting over his own strain. McAdam felt tightness in his hamstring at the end of the loss to the Cats. – Callum Twomey

Brisbane Lions

 Marcus Adams  Foot  TBC
 Stefan Martin  Back  2-4 weeks
 Lincoln McCarthy  Suspension  1 match
 Connor McFadyen  Knee  Season
 Daniel Rich  Hamstring  Test
 Archie Smith  Ankle  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Rich suffered some tightness in his hamstring in the days before Sunday’s victory over St Kilda and was left out as a precaution. With 12 days between that game and the Lions’ next hitout against Collingwood, the half-back is expected to be fine. – Michael Whiting


 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Brodie Kemp  Knee  Season
 Matthew Kennedy  Quad  Test
 Matthew Kreuzer  Foot  2-4 weeks
 Caleb Marchbank  Soreness  Test

 Nic Newman  Knee  Season
 Ben Silvagni  Shoulder  Season
 Jack Silvagni  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Liam Stocker  Personal  Indefinite
 Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Carlton should regain Kennedy from a corked quad for Sunday’s pivotal clash with arch rivals Collingwood, but McGovern will miss another match due to a hamstring injury. Time is running out for Marchbank to return this season, with the important defender missing a scratch match last weekend due to leg soreness. – Riley Beveridge


 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Jordan De Goey  Finger  3-5 weeks
 Jeremy Howe  Knee  3-5 weeks
 Will Kelly  Elbow  Season
 Brody Mihocek  Concussion  Test
 Isaac Quaynor  Shin  Test
 Ben Reid  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Steele Sidebottom  Personal  Indefinite
 Brayden Sier  Quad  3-4 weeks
 Adam Treloar  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Collingwood remains hopeful that both De Goey and Howe will return for the club’s finals campaign, should it qualify. Its chances of doing that will be bolstered by the return of Mihocek from a concussion for Sunday’s clash with Carlton. Quaynor could also recover from a nasty gashed shin, but Treloar and Reid are still at least a fortnight away. Sidebottom returns to Victoria this week for the birth of his child. – Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

 Patrick Ambrose  Foot  Indefinite
 Tom Bellchambers  Knee  1 week
 Ned Cahill  Quad  2-3 weeks
 Orazio Fantasia  Calf  TBC
 Aaron Francis  Hamstring  TBC
 Dyson Heppell  Ankle  Indefinite
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season
 Lachlan Johnson  Knee  Season
 Jayden Laverde  Ankle  3-4 weeks
 Conor McKenna  Hip  Test
 David Zaharakis  Quad  Season
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Joe Daniher has been taken off the club’s injury list and could be brought straight in to face the Hawks on Thursday night after ramping up his training. It would be his first game since round nine last year. The Bombers had another soft-tissue setback when they lost Francis early in the game against Richmond last week, while Fantasia had more calf issues and will be out for six weeks. Cale Hooker should return, however, as he closes in on his first game since round seven. – Callum Twomey


 Travis Colyer  Hamstring  1 week
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  Season
 Griffin Logue  Toe  3 weeks
 Lloyd Meek  Calf  2 weeks
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  Season
 Sam Sturt  Ankle  Season
 Sam Switkowski  Back  Test
 Darcy Tucker  Hamstring  Season
 Hayden Young  Ankle  Season
Updated: Monday, August 24

Early prognosis

In a boost for Freo’s key defensive stocks, Logue will fly with the team to Cairns and he could return to action in three weeks. Switkowski will play limited minutes in the reserves scratch match against the Giants after overcoming his long-term back injury, while Colyer should be available for the round 15 game against Richmond. Rory Lobb has been cleared of an ankle injury suffered against the Swans, while fellow big man Meek injured his calf in the scratch match against Sydney.  Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

 Gary Ablett  Personal  Indefinite
 Luke Dahlhaus  Suspended  1 match
 Darcy Fort  Foot  Test
 Joel Selwood  Soreness  Test
 Sam Simpson  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Jack Steven  Knee  Test
 Zach Tuohy  Knee soreness  Test
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

The Cats are refusing to give further detail on Selwood’s “niggle” that had him miss Sunday’s win over Adelaide. He is expected to be in the frame for the clash with the Western Bulldogs should he pass training on Wednesday. Steven got a knock to his knee late in the match that will need to be looked at. Tuohy sat out with knee soreness, but it isn’t expected to be a long-term concern. Fort is back running strongly after his foot problem and could be in line for scratch match minutes. Ablett will be on a flight to Queensland on September 1 before serving his 14-day quarantine and joining teammates ahead of round 18. Harry Taylor is expected to return after he was managed against the Crows. – Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

 Mitch Riordan  Knee  Season
 Matt Rowell  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Josh Schoenfeld  Foot  Test
 Rory Thompson  Knee  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Terrible news last week with Thompson suffering a partial tear to his ACL. The club is still exploring its options, but this season is obviously over and there remains a big question mark on 2021 if the veteran fullback requires a full reconstruction. – Michael Whiting

GWS Giants

 Phil Davis  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Matt de Boer  Hamstring  Test
 Tom Hutchesson  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Sam Taylor  Back  TBC
 Callan Ward  Finger  4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Ward‘s wretched run with injury continued with his graphic finger injury on the weekend. He looks set for about a month on the sidelines. Davis’ recent knee injury has recovered and but an older knee injury on his opposite leg has flared up and he will miss a week or two. Isaac Cumming and Sam Reid are available after their injuries. – Callum Twomey


 James Frawley  Thumb/general soreness  Test
 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Ricky Henderson  Knee  Season
 Harry Jones  Knee  3-5 weeks
 Jaeger O’Meara  Hand  1-2 weeks
 James Sicily  Knee  Season
 Isaac Smith  Shoulder  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

The Hawks had a shocking few days on the injury front last week, with scans confirming Sicily‘s ACL rupture, while O’MearaFrawley and Jack Gunston were also not able to back up against Port Adelaide. O’Meara and Smith (who last played in round 11) will each miss at least one more game, but Gunston is available to face Essendon on Thursday and Frawley could play, too. Henderson‘s torn meniscus wasn’t improving as club medicos hoped and he will undergo surgery this week that ends his season. Both Sicily and Henderson will go under the knife on Friday– Marc McGowan


 Marty Hore  Quad/Toe  Indefinite
 Luke Jackson  Hamstring  4 weeks
 James Jordon  Finger  4-6 weeks
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Alex Neal-Bullen  Suspension  1 match
 Harry Petty  Groin  Indefinite
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
 Tom Sparrow  Collarbone  4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Max Gawn completed match simulation training on Monday and will train again on Wednesday, but is set to return against St Kilda on Saturday night after missing the past three games. Nathan Jones was a late withdrawal last week, but didn’t require scans and is also available. Sparrow broke his collarbone in a collision with Marcus Bontempelli in the loss to the Western Bulldogs and faces at least a month out. Jordon required plastic surgery after jamming a finger between two dumbbells last week, while Jackson is aiming to return for round 18. – Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

 Aiden Bonar  AC joint  2 weeks
 Ben Brown  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Charlie Comben  Back  Indefinite
 Ben Cunnington  Back  Season
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Kyron Hayden  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  Indefinite
 Jamie Macmillan  Personal  Season
 Jack Mahony  Shoulder  Test
 Curtis Taylor  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Tarryn Thomas  Ankle  Season
 Kayne Turner  Toe/Sesamoid  Season
 Dom Tyson  Calf  2-3 weeks
 Will Walker  Hamstring  4-6 weeks
 Tristan Xerri  Shoulder  Test
 Jack Ziebell  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

There were no serious additions to the Roos’ injury list, with young pair Mahony and Xerri hurting themselves in Monday night’s game, while Robbie Tarrant (corked calf) returned. However, North has pushed back Brown‘s timeline because of swelling in his sore knee, while Tyson‘s nightmare calf problems continue. Hayden‘s recovery is also going slowly, but captain Ziebell is nearing a return. Walker is long odds to play again this season, although Bonar and Taylor should get back in time – Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

 Ryan Burton  Quad  Test
 Dan Houston  Suspension  1 match
 Peter Ladhams  Suspension  2 matches
 Scott Lycett  Knee  Test
 Todd Marshall  Thumb  Test
 Sam Powell-Pepper  Suspension  1 match
 Connor Rozee  Heel  Test
 Dylan Williams  Groin  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

It will be an interesting week on the track for Port Adelaide. Burton and Marshall are a chance to return, but Lycett is being monitored due to knee soreness. Should he not play, it will cause a ruck headache with Ladhams already suspended. Rozee is another who is a chance to face Sydney on Saturday after recovering from a heel injury. – Riley Beveridge


 David Astbury  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Callum Coleman-Jones  Foot  2-4 weeks
 Riley Collier-Dawkins  Shoulder  1-2 weeks
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season
 Shane Edwards  Personal  Indefinite
 Bigoa Nyuon  Shoulder  Season
 Dion Prestia  Ankle  2-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Toby Nankervis has recovered from the ankle syndesmosis injury that has sidelined him since round five and is a strong chance of playing this week. Prestia needed an arthroscope on his injured ankle and will now be racing the clock to return before finals. Astbury is in a similar boat in his recovery from a knee injury, while Edwards is set to 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  2-3 weeks
 Jade Gresham  Back  4-8 weeks
 Dan Hannebery  Hamstring  3-5 weeks
 Jack Mayo  Knee  Season
 Jimmy Webster  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

The Saints are bullish that Dunstan is making strong progress from his torn pectoral muscle and could play late in the home and away season or the first week or finals. Webster is being eased back into main training after a frustrating injury run. Hannebery has started running in recent weeks and is aiming to be on the last AFL flight bound for Queensland on September 1 before joining teammates on September 15 after quarantine. Hunter Clark is expected to return after he was managed against the Lions. – Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

 Kaiden Brand  Groin  1 week
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  Season
 Isaac Heeney  Ankle  Season
 George Hewett  Back  Season
 Jack Maibaum  Person  Season
 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 25

Early prognosis

Franklin is out for the rest of the year after developing groin soreness in his recovery from a serious hamstring setback in May. Co-captain Josh Kennedy (knee) made a surprise early return on Saturday night and the Swans appear to have emerged unscathed from the defeat to Fremantle. The club announced last week that Maibaum‘s mother had passed away. He is back in Victoria and won’t return this season. – Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

 Oscar Allen  Corked glute  Test
 Jamaine Jones  Hamstring  Season
 Jackson Nelson  Shoulder  Test
 Mitch O’Neill  Back  4-6 weeks
 Jack Petruccelle  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Jack Redden  Adductor  Test
 Will Schofield  Elbow  1-2 weeks
 Nathan Vardy  Thigh  4-5 weeks
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
 Jake Waterman  Hand  1-2 weeks
 Francis Watson  Knee  Season
 Elliot Yeo  Groin  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, August 25

Early prognosis

Nelson and Allen were both sore during the win over the Giants before playing out the match, but given the four-day turnaround, the pair will be looked at this week. Yeo remains at least a week away, while Redden is touch-and-go given the short turnaround. The Eagles are confident Waterman is making good progress from hand surgery and could feature soon in their upcoming condensed period of matches. Mark Hutchings has overcome a toe issue and is available for senior selection after being listed as an emergency last week. – Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

 Zaine Cordy  Chest  Test
 Lin Jong  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Callum Porter  Groin  2-3 weeks
 Rhylee West  Groin  2-3 weeks
Updated: Monday, August 24

Early prognosis

Matt Suckling ticked one of the last boxes with a game-like session over the weekend as he and Cordy appear to be in the mix to return. Taylor Duryea could play his first scratch match for the year after persistent quad issues, but Porter and West will be out for a couple of weeks after picking up groin injuries. – Jourdan Canil
