In more positive news, Greenwood is likely to be passed fit for the big clash with Essendon on Sunday, while Reid, Elliott and Moore are expected to be back soon. Aish and Fasolo are recovering well, while Goldsack is coming along better than expected. The club continues to monitor Kirby’s heart issue. – Ben Collins

 Daniel Menzel  Groin  Test
 Lincoln McCarthy  Hamstring  1-3 weeks
 Esava Ratugolea  Ankle  Indefinite
 Zac Smith  Back  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 26

Early prognosis

Nakia Cockatoo and Daniel Menzel joined Harry Taylor and Cam Guthrie in a punishing session during the mid-season break and are nearing returns. The Cats have preached caution with injuries this season and Lincoln McCarthy’s hamstring strain will be managed closely. Zac Smith and Stewart Crameri both missed the VFL clash before the bye but are expected to return. – Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Michael Barlow  Jaw  TBA
 Jack Bowes  Quad  1-2 weeks

Still no word on the severity of Day‘s shoulder, but regardless there’ll be no help coming back this week. Hanley and Fiorini are getting close after long layoffs and could be tested as early as next week. – Michael Whiting

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Brett Deledio  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Toby Greene  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Daniel Lloyd  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Tom Scully  Ankle  6-8 weeks
 Will Setterfield  Knee  Season
 Lachie Tiziani  Knee  Season
 Zac Williams  Achilles  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

Greene and Deledio continue to progress well and trained with the squad on Tuesday, before doing some extra running after the light session. They could be a chance to play some footy in the next fortnight, with Lloyd in the same bracket. Williams will increase his training over the next month to see if he can salvage the season, but it looks a long shot. – Adam Curley

HAWTHORN

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Grant Birchall  Knee (PCL)  3 weeks
 Shaun Burgoyne  Hamstring  3 weeks
 James Cousins  Adductor  1 week
 Jack Gunston  Calf  Test
 Will Langford  Finger  Test
 Cyril Rioli  Personal reasons  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

Gunston is the one. He plays and the Hawks are better placed to get the points over the Dogs. He misses and it becomes a 50-50 proposition. Burgoyne is on track, which is good, but they haven’t said much about Birchall of late. Hopefully no news is good news and the mini-preseason is going well. – Ashley Browne

MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Jayden Hunt  Ankle  4-5 weeks
 Dean Kent  Hamstring  Test
 Jake Lever  Knee  Season
 Corey Maynard  Hip  Season
 Pat McKenna  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Aaron vandenBerg  Foot  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 26

Early prognosis

Kent should be ready to resume after a long layoff with a hamstring injury, which is likely to see him come back through the VFL. McKenna and vandenBerg are getting closer to a return to the field. – Ben Guthrie

NORTH MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  5-6 weeks
 Billy Hartung  Hamstring  TBC
 Ben Jacobs  Concussion  Test
 Ben McKay  Knee  Test
 Declan Mountford  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Knee  Season
 Jarrad Waite  Calf  TBC
 Declan Watson  Knee  3-4 weeks
 Mason Wood  Hamstring  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

Wood‘s hamstring setback continues North’s wretched luck with injuries in recent weeks after a largely clean bill of health before that. Jacobs will be in contention to return after being a late withdrawal the last two weeks. Waite hasn’t played since being a very late out before the club’s round 11 clash with Brisbane, then suffering a recurrence at training a fortnight ago. McKay should be right to resume in the VFL this weekend.Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Joe Atley  Back  2-3 weeks
 Willem Drew  Heel  Season
 Joel Garner  Shoulder  Season
 Hamish Hartlett  Knee  Season
 Sam Hayes  Knee  Season
 Tom Jonas  Hamstring  Test
 Trent McKenzie  Quad  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

Key defender Jonas is a good chance to return for Saturday’s clash with St Kilda at Adelaide Oval. Jasper Pittard has been cleared of injury despite a tight hamstring keeping him on the bench for the second half of the win over Carlton last weekend. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Mabior Chol  Foot  3-5 weeks
 Reece Conca  Ankle  6 weeks
 Trent Cotchin  Knee  Test
 Nathan Drummond  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Bachar Houli  Groin  1 week
 Oleg Markov  Knee  1-3 weeks
 Anthony Miles  Concussion  1 week
 Jacob Townsend  Suspension (VFL)  1 week
 Nick Vlastuin  Suspension  1 week
Updated: Monday, July 2

Early prognosis

Reece Conca will miss multiple weeks after dislocating his ankle against Sydney but is expected to play in the latter stages of the home-and-away season and be available for finals. Bachar Houli is starting to become a bit of a concern as his groin injury drags into a fifth week. He won’t play against Adelaide after last appearing at AFL level in round 10. Anthony Miles has already been declared unavailable after a nasty VFL concussion that saw him checked in hospital, but the Tigers expect captain Trent Cotchin will be fine despite playing out the win over the Swans with a sore knee. Jennifer Phelan

ST KILDA

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Blake Acres  Groin  Test
 Josh Battle  Eye socket  2-3 weeks
 Nathan Brown  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Ben Long  Foot  3-5 weeks
 Dylan Roberton  Heart  Season
 Koby Stevens  Concussion  Season
 Jimmy Webster  Groin  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

A fractured left eye socket will keep Battle out for a little while, but he doesn’t need surgery. If Acres is fit, he is expected to return through the VFL. A left hamstring injury for Brown will keep him out for a few games. – Dinny Navaratnam

SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Isaac Heeney  Concussion  Test
 Matthew Ling  Toe  Season
 Callum Mills  Foot  Season
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Tom Papley  Hip  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

 Early prognosis

Heeney failed to train on Tuesday and is unlikely to face the Cats on Thursday night, while Papley will be given another week to get over his hip flexor issue. Reid and Melican both got through last week’s return in the NEAFL and will be in line to face North Melbourne next week. – Adam Curley

WEST COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Tom Barrass  Back  1 week
 Jack Darling  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Mark LeCras  Wrist  Test
 Malcolm Karpany  Knee  3 weeks
 Josh Kennedy  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Eric Mackenzie  Toe  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

Kennedy is closing in on a return but will miss Sunday’s must-win clash with the Giants, while LeCras is in serious doubt after being restricted to grabbing the ball with his left hand and protecting his right wrist at Tuesday training, before breaking away and running laps. Barrass, Darling and ruckman Nic Naitanui weren’t sighted at Subiaco Oval. Liam Ryan joined in full training after his car crash early on Monday morning. – Travis King

WESTERN BULLDOGS

 Easton Wood  Hamstring  8-9 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

Daniel and English will need to pass fitness tests to play this weekend, with English to resume through the VFL if declared fit. Williams is a big loss for the Dogs. – Ryan Davidson

    1. Duman …. huge chance, 31 touches for Peel in the WAFL & 4 inside 50’s, 2 rebound 50’s, 2 tackles & 1 goal. As Freo lost, I’d say 80/20 chance the axe will swing his way!

      T Smith …. good chance, 20 touches at Casey & 2 inside 50’s, 2 rebound 50’s, 2 tackles & 1 goal. As Melbourne lost, I’d say 50/50 chance the axe may swing his way

      Barry …. 11 touches for PA, 3 tackles & 2 inside 50’s, as Port won I’d say he’s a NO

  1. For those considering J Kelly I watched an interview last week and he spoke about still needing to manage his groin and he plays on the “hard” Optus Stadium surface this week against the eagles. From my team Liam Ryan, Venables, Walters, Redman and Nat Fyfe have all been injured on that ground, whilst Luke Shuey, Buddy, Darling and Joe Daniher have all been injured there, just to name a few. Just a bit of a danger game for those who are already low on trades.

  2. Fyfe update – “We know how professional Nat and Aaron are, so we see Nat’s injury being a four to five-week injury to the hamstring,” general manager of football operations Chris Bond said. Source: AFL web site.

  3. Crows injury update. Mitch McGovern listed as 2 weeks away. But don’t be surprised to see him come back this week.

    Lachie Murphy is unlikely. Played SANFL last Sunday. Short break, 1st year player, playing the G & coming back from hammy. Could of done with him if Webster didn’t come up.
