Updated: Monday, July 9

Early prognosis

Talia and Betts are chances of playing against Geelong on Thursday night. Ellis-Yolmen could also be available, but it’s more likely he comes through the SANFL. All three will need to get through training on Tuesday.

COLLINGWOOD

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 James Aish  Knee  Test
 Flynn Appleby  Hamstring  TBC
 Jarryd Blair  Hamstring  Test

 Darcy Moore  Hamstring  Test
 Ben Reid  Knees/calf  3-5 weeks
 Adam Treloar  Hamstring  6-8 weeks
 Daniel Wells  Foot  Season
Updated: Monday, July 9

Early prognosis

Hoskin-Elliott appeared to suffer a knee injury in the win over Essendon but the Pies believe it’s simply a badly bruised shin, while Appleby seems certain to have a stint on the sidelines after hurting a hamstring. Meanwhile, Elliott, Fasolo, Aish and Blair are all chances to return in the VFL. Reid’s lay-off has been extended by surgery to both knees. Treloar and Goldsack hold out hope of returning but veterans Dunn and Wells won’t play again this season. The club continues to monitor Kirby’s heart issue. – Ben Collins

ESSENDON

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Josh Begley  Knee  Season
 Joe Daniher  Groin  4-6 weeks
 Martin Gleeson  Ankle  6-8 weeks
 Darcy Parish  Thumb  1-2 weeks
 Mason Redman  Ankle  6-8 weeks
 David Zaharakis  Shoulder  4-5 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 3

Early prognosis

Coach John Worsfold said on Sunday following the Bombers’ win over North Melbourne they were unlikely to have any of their injured players available for this week’s clash with Collingwood. Parish is not far away but seems most likely to come back via the VFL, where he originally injured his thumb, while the return dates for Daniher and Zaharakis remain unclear. – Callum Twomey

FREMANTLE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Connor Blakely  Knee  Season
 Hugh Dixon  Hamstring  1 week

GEELONG

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Aaron Black  Knee  Season
 Cory Gregson  Foot soreness  Test
 Lincoln McCarthy  Hamstring  Test
 Jordan Murdoch  Concussion  Test
 Mark O’Connor  Back  Test
 Esava Ratugolea  Ankle  Indefinite
 Harry Taylor  Soreness  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 10

Early prognosis

Harry Taylor and Mark O’Connor need to pass fitness tests in order to face the Crows on Thursday night. Nakia Cockatoo has finally been given the green light to play for the first time after a round three knee injury, having missed the past fortnight with illness. Cory Gregson‘s second consecutive week of foot soreness will raise more alarm bells after missing 18 months prior to this year with a stress fracture to his navicular bone. Lincoln McCarthy ran laps at training on Monday and will be out to prove he’s ready to bounce back from a round 12 hamstring strain. Esava Ratugolea will this week resume running as he continues to hold out hope of a late-season comeback. – Mitch Cleary

GOLD COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Michael Barlow  Jaw  TBA
 Jack Bowes  Quad  Test
 Sam Day  Shoulder  TBA
 Brayden Fiorini  Leg  Test
 Aaron Hall  Pectoral  Season
 Pearce Hanley  Dislocated shoulder  Test
 Tom Lynch  Knee  Season

 Darcy MacPherson  Broken leg  5-6 weeks
 Tom Nicholls  Shoulder  5-6 weeks
 Matt Rosa  Hamstring  Test
 Harrison Wigg  Fractured ankle  Season
 Mackenzie Willis  ACL  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 10

Early prognosis

Plenty of guys close to returning this week, led by Pearce Hanley. The classy Irishman has missed three months following shoulder surgery and will have to pass a test to play, most likely in the NEAFL. Bowes, Fiorini and Rosa will also get put through their paces with Fiorini almost certain to play NEAFL. – 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
 Jon Patton  Knee  TBC
 Tom Scully  Ankle  6-8 weeks
 Will Setterfield  Knee  Season
 Lachie Tiziani  Knee  Season
 Zac Williams  Achilles  TBC
Updated: Thursday, July 5

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. The club will need to wait for scan results to know the extent of Patton‘s injury. – Adam Curley

HAWTHORN

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Grant Birchall  Knee (PCL)  4 weeks
 Shaun Burgoyne  Hamstring  2 weeks
 James Cousins  Adductor  Test
 Will Langford  Finger  Test
 Ben McEvoy  Cheekbone  6 weeks
 Marc Pittonet  Ankle  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 10

Early prognosis

Losing McEvoy is a huge blow, so the Hawks need Pittonet fit so he can be called on if needed. Burgoyne will be back for the tough games in August and so might Birchall. If the Hawks make the finals, they might have the weaponry to win some games. – Ashley Browne

MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Jayden Hunt  Ankle  4 weeks
 Jake Lever  Knee  Season
 Corey Maynard  Hip  Season
 Joel Smith  Hip  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 10

Early prognosis

Joel Smith will face a fitness test after injuring his hip against Fremantle on Saturday night. Jayden Hunt has started running, but is still a month away from returning to the field. – Ben Guthrie

NORTH MELBOURNE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  4-5 weeks
 Billy Hartung  Hamstring  4-5 weeks
 Declan Mountford  Hamstring  1 week
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Knee  Season
 Jarrad Waite  Calf  4 weeks
 Declan Watson  Knee  4 weeks
 Mason Wood  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Cam Zurhaar  Ankle  8-10 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 10

Early prognosis

Zurhaar suffered a broken ankle against Gold Coast and may not play again this season, in a major blow for the promising young forward-midfielder. Waite finally has a timeline, but the bad news is he will be out for another month. Mountford is getting closer to an on-field return and could still make something of his frustrating year, but further help looks to be at least two weeks off. Marc McGowan

PORT ADELAIDE

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Joe Atley  Back  2-3 weeks
 Matthew Broadbent  Foot  TBC
 Willem Drew  Heel  Season
 Joel Garner  Shoulder  Season
 Sam Gray  Ankle  TBC
 Hamish Hartlett  Knee  Season
 Sam Hayes  Knee  Season
 Tom Jonas  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Jake Neade  Knee  TBC
 Jasper Pittard  Hamstring  TBC
Updated: Monday, July 9

Early prognosis

All Australian candidate Jonas will miss at least a month with a knee injury. Gray and Pittard could both return to face Fremantle on Sunday. – Lee Gaskin

RICHMOND

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Nathan Broad  Cheekbone  3-4 weeks
 Dan Butler  Ankle  3-4 weeks
 Mabior Chol  Foot  4 weeks
 Reece Conca  Ankle  5 weeks
 Nathan Drummond  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Ryan Garthwaite  Ankle  1 week
 Jack Graham  Shoulder  3-4 weeks
 Bachar Houli  Groin  Available
 Oleg Markov  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Anthony Miles  Concussion  Test
 Jacob Townsend  Suspension (VFL)  Available
 Nick Vlastuin  Suspension  Available
Updated: Monday, July 9

Early prognosis

The Tigers are counting the cost of their win over the Crows with a premiership trio sustaining potentially month-long injuries. Broad appears to be the most serious, having required surgery to repair a depressed cheekbone fracture with multiple plates. Graham had his dislocated shoulder reset at the ground on Friday night and has avoided an operation, but is still expected to miss up to a month. Butler is wearing a moon boot after hurting his ankle and faces similar time out. The good news is Houli could return while Vlastuin will be back from suspension. Garthwaite isn’t likely to be an option with the young defender suffering a minor ankle injury in the VFL. Jennifer Phelan

ST KILDA

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Josh Battle  Eye socket  1-2 weeks
 Nathan Brown  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Josh Bruce  Leg  Season

 Paddy McCartin  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Darren Minchington  Hip  Test
 Dylan Roberton  Heart  Season
 Koby Stevens  Concussion  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 10

Early prognosis

A left foot sprain will keep McCartin out of Friday night’s clash with Carlton. Carlisle took to the track on Monday and coach Alan Richardson is “optimistic” the defender will return from a punctured lung. – Dinny Navaratnam

SYDNEY

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
 Gary Rohan  Hamstring  TBC
 Ryley Stoddart  Concussion  Test
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 like Papley, will be in line to face North Melbourne next week. – Adam Curley

  1. Also, why is Birchall always listed as 4 weeks? That’s what it said when I brought him in in Draft 4 weeks ago!

      1. No, I just liked the look of him as backup. He also has a good record against the most of the teams Hawthorn is scheduled to play.
