PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Luke Brown Knee Test Tom Doedee Shoulder/finger Test Andrew McPherson Knee Season Paul Seedsman Concussion Season Rory Sloane Knee Season Riley Thilthorpe Ankle TestUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Doedee
is battling multiple issues late in the season but will train this week and be assessed ahead of the trip to face West Coast. He has progressed well through some modified sessions. Brown's knee is responding well to conditioning work and he will also be assessed. Thilthorpe trained fully on Monday and is expected to be available. – Nathan Schmook


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Zac Bailey Sternum Test Jarrod Berry Ankle Test Tom Berry Shoulder Season Carter Michael Shoulder Season Daniel Rich Concussion Test Brandon Starcevich Quad TestUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Bailey
and Jarrod Berry jogged slow laps at training on Tuesday morning, with Berry looking particularly proppy. Not playing until Sunday gives them both a good chance to be available though. Rich just needs to tick off the final stages of his protocols, while Starcevich looked free and is expected to play. Michael Whiting


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Jordan Boyd Foot 3-7 weeks David Cuningham Knee TBC Ed Curnow Hamstring 1-3 weeks Corey Durdin Shoulder TBC George Hewett Back Test Matt Kennedy Concussion 1-2 weeks Oscar McDonald Back Season Nic Newman Knee TBC Luke Parks Foot Season Sam Philp Foot Season Zac Williams Calf 2-3 weeksUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
The Blues are still waiting on a diagnosis for Durdin and Newman, who exited last week's loss to the Crows through injury. Kennedy will miss this week after entering the AFL's concussion protocols. Jack Carroll (soreness) and Jack Martin (calf) returned through the VFL last weekend, while Will Hayes is back from suspension. Riley Beveridge


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Taylor Adams Groin TBC Charlie Dean Foot Season Jeremy Howe Leg Test Nathan Kreuger Shoulder Season Reef McInnes Shoulder Season Brody Mihocek Hip Test Tom Wilson Back SeasonUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Adams
will miss the rest of the home and away season after straining his groin in the first half of Saturday’s win over Port Adelaide. The club will assess his recovery in the coming weeks to determine if the midfielder will be available in the first week of September. Howe has a corked buttock and will need to prove his fitness at Thursday’s captain’s run. Mihocek will also need to pass a fitness test after missing the game against the Power due to a hip problem. – Josh Gabelich


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Jye Caldwell Calf TBC Nik Cox Ankle Season Darcy Parish Calf Test Dylan Shiel Hamstring TBC Devon Smith Knee Indefinite Tex Wanganeen Foot SeasonUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Parish
could be back for the Bombers after missing four games due to a calf injury. Shiel (hamstring) was a late withdrawal from the win over North Melbourne and Caldwell hurt his calf and was substituted out of that victory. Andrew McGrath is set to be available after missing the Kangaroos clash due to health and safety protocols. – Dejan Kalinic

Fyfe
has identified round 23 as his target to return from a hamstring injury after starting some light running. Switkowski finally has a timeline to return and it is a short one, targeting the round 22 Western Derby after seven weeks sidelined. Josh Treacy has been cleared to play this week after missing in the WAFL due to illness. – Nathan Schmook

Menegola missed on the weekend due to knee soreness after exiting concussion protocols and will need to prove his fitness later in the week. Stanley is yet to be ruled out for this weekend after injuring his knee against Port Adelaide. – Josh Gabelich

has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to the shoulder injury he has nursed since Easter Monday. Lewis ended the game early after suffering a knee injury and will miss this weekend. Morris won’t face the Suns and is still being assessed after being substituted out of Saturday night’s loss to St Kilda with a shoulder injury. Koschitzke is a chance to be available this weekend after copping a corked leg. – Josh Gabelich


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Ben Brown Knee Test James Harmes Concussion Test Tom McDonald Ankle 4-6 weeks Fraser Rosman Hamstring 3-5 weeks Deakyn Smith Jaw TestUpdated: August 2, 2022

The Demons hope that Brown and Harmes will return for Friday night's blockbuster against the Pies, while McDonald could also make his comeback ahead of the club's finals campaign. Joel Smith (ankle) returned through the VFL last week. Riley Beveridge

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Jackson Archer Hip Test Miller Bergman Shoulder Season Aidan Corr H&S protocols Test Ben Cunnington H&S protocols Test Paul Curtis H&S protocols Test Aaron Hall H&S protocols Test Jack Mahony H&S protocols Test Will Phillips Illness Season Jared Polec Foot Season Tristan Xerri Shoulder Season Lachie Young H&S protocols TestUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
The Kangaroos believe that Corr, Cunnington, Curtis and Hall should return from the AFL's health and safety protocols for this week's clash with the Swans, but Mahony and Young will be touch-and-go after testing positive later in the week. Charlie Comben (leg) and Kyron Hayden (groin) returned through the VFL last weekend, while Flynn Perez is back from suspension. – Riley Beveridge


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Travis Boak HandAssess Darcy Byrne-Jones Ankle Assess Dan Houston Concussion Assess Scott Lycett Shoulder TBC Jake Pasini Knee SeasonUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Boak
has suffered a fracture in his left hand but is expected to be available. The Power are also confident Byrne-Jones will be available against Richmond after suffering a sprained right ankle. Houston will this week complete the AFL's 12-day concussion protocols and is recovering well. Riley Bonner should be available after clearing health and safety protocols. – Nathan Schmook


PLAYER Dylan Grimes Hamstring 3-4 weeks Dustin Martin Hamstring 2-4 weeks Samson Ryan Concussion TestUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Grimes
has suffered a high hamstring strain, in the same area that caused him significant grief around 10 years ago. The Tigers have said he's doubtful to play in the remainder of the home and away season, and there'll be a further update to come in the next few days. Martin has been struggling to increase his speed, and the Tigers have earmarked round 23 as a "hopeful" return date. – Sarah Black


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Jack Billings Back TBC Nick Coffield ACL Season Jade Gresham Knee Season Jack Hayes Knee Season Dougal Howard Knee Test Daniel McKenzie Calf 1-2 weeks Paddy Ryder Calf 3-4 weeksUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Howard
could be available for Saturday night's crucial game against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The key defender will need to prove his fitness later in the week. Billings is still dealing with a back injury and hasn't been cleared to return to action just yet. Gresham was ruled out for the rest of the season late last week and will require a PCL reconstruction, sidelining him for the next five months. – Josh Gabelich


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Peter Ladhams Thumb Test Sam Naismith Knee Season Colin O'Riordan Hip TBC Marc Sheather Ankle TBCUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
It's all good news for the Swans with Ladhams expected to be available this weekend – most likely at VFL level with Tom Hickey and Sam Reid going well in the seniors. - Michael Whiting


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Oscar Allen Foot Inactive Campbell Chesser Ankle Inactive Tom Cole Ankle Inactive Jai Culley Suspended 2 weeks Luke Edwards Groin Inactive Tom Joyce Ankle Season Jeremy McGovern Ribs Season Dom Sheed Shins Season Elliot Yeo Hamstring TBCUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
The Eagles are close to calling an end to Yeo's disjointed season, rather than risking a comeback in the final three rounds. Culley has accepted a two-match suspension but also suffered a hamstring injury in round 20 that will sideline him for the duration of that ban. Chesser remains focused on returning from an ankle injury to complete main training before the end of the season. – Nathan Schmook


PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Hayden Crozier Ankle Test Charlie Parker Hamstring 1-3 weeks Anthony Scott Concussion Test Adam Treloar Calf Test Mitch Wallis Foot SeasonUpdated: August 2, 2022
Early prognosis
Treloar
will need to get through training on Thursday before a call is made on his availability with his calf injury after missing last week against Geelong. Scott and Crozier are tests this week with their respective concerns. - Callum Twomey
