AFL Injury List




Estimated Return

 Tim Broomhead   Broken leg    Season
 Lynden Dunn  Knee  Season
 Jamie Elliott  Hamstring  Season
 Jeremy Howe  Ankle  Available
 Kayle Kirby    Heart issue  Season
 Darcy Moore  Hamstring  Available
 Matt Scharenberg  Knee  Season
 Daniel Wells  Foot  Season
Updated: Wednesday, September 26

Early prognosis

Howe hurt his left ankle in the preliminary final win over Richmond but scans cleared him of damage and he appears certain to take his place in the Grand Final against West Coast. Even if Moore is passed fit he is unlikely to be selected after seven weeks on the sidelines, but the key defender could come under consideration to take on the Eagles’ tall forwards. ElliottScharenbergDunnWellsBroomhead and Sam Murray won't play again this season. The club continues to monitor Kirby's heart issue. - Ben Collins




Estimated Return

 Andrew Gaff  Suspension  3 matches
 Eric Mackenzie  Toe  Season
 Jeremy McGovern  Hip  Test
 Nic Naitanui  Knee  Season
 Tony Olango  Hamstring  Season
 Brad Sheppard  Hamstring  Season
 Luke Shuey  Ankle  Test
Updated: Tuesday, September 25

Early prognosis

McGovern missed training on Monday due to a big corky on his hip but the triple All Australian will be ready to go for the Grand Final, and Shuey will also be fine after tweaking his left ankle during the preliminary final belting of Melbourne. Travis King
