 Lachlan Murphy  Ankle  Test
 Nick Murray  Concussion  Test
 Patrick Parnell  AC joint  Test
 Daniel Talia  Foot  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Small forward Murphy received some good news on Monday when scans cleared him of serious damage to the ankle tweak that saw him replaced late in the win over Hawthorn. He will rejoin the main group later in the week. Murray just needs to tick off the final stages of his concussion protocol but is expected to be available to play the Western Bulldogs on Saturday. - Michael Whiting

 Darcy Gardiner  Shoulder  2-4 weeks

 Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Not much official coming out of the Lions, although Gardiner continues to ease towards a return.

 Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Where to start for the Blues? Betts and Williams have been ruled out this week, while it has now been confirmed that Docherty and Gibbons will miss the remainder of the season. Casboult and Setterfield are likely to be sidelined for another couple of weeks, Pittonet is an outside chance to return this season, while McKay is highly unlikely to play against the Saints on Friday night. McGovern should finally play at some level, be it VFL or AFL, this weekend. - Riley Beveridge

 Scott Pendlebury  Leg fracture  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Howe has been cleared to return more than three months since his last game after passing training with flying colours. Pendlebury will be in a moon boot for a month after sustaining a hairline fracture to his left fibula against the Power. Will Hoskin-Elliott (back), Will Kelly (quad), Chris Mayne (ankle) and Josh Thomas (concussion) have been wiped off the injury list, while Taylor Adams has been cleared of any damage to his eye stemming from an incident against the Power.

Jones remains in a moonboot after the stress reaction in his foot was caught early. - Callum Twomey

Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Fyfe underwent successful reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder in Melbourne on Tuesday, officially ending his season. Walters will also struggle to return this season after a serious hamstring injury. The Dockers have placed a timeline on Lobb's return, with the big man looking at a return in the last fortnight. Hill suffered yet another setback in the first half of his WAFL return. - Nathan Schmook

 Cameron Taheny  Hamstring  TBC
Updated: Thursday, July 29

Early prognosis

Selwood will be monitored this week off a six-day break after he was subbed out of the win over Richmond with a corked quad. Miers has suffered another fractured to the right fibula that saw him miss six weeks earlier this year. While he won't require surgery, the small forward will be touch-and-go to play again this season. Higgins is confident of returning for his 250th match after he was a late withdrawal with knee soreness. It is hoped Cameron will return before the end of the home and away season, with Duncan more likely for the first week of finals. - Mitch Cleary

 Rory Thompson  Knee  Season
 Lachie Weller  Concussion  Test
 Jarrod Witts  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

The Suns confirmed Markov's hamstring as a medium-grade tear that will have him racing to be back before the end of the season. Day is still not quite over his plantar fascia problem and will miss at least another week, while Weller missed his second game at the weekend following concussion and is still listed as a test. - Michael Whiting

 Lachlan Keeffe  Knee  Season
 Braydon Preuss  Pectoral  3-5 weeks
 Will Shaw  Shoulder  Season
 Conor Stone  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Coniglio was a late withdrawal last week after feeling soreness in the big toe he had an operation on earlier this year and the Giants taking a cautious approach with their captain. Phil Davis went to hospital after copping a knock to his back before half-time against the Bombers and feeling sore after the match, but he was cleared of injury. Ruckman Flynn had a shoulder reconstruction last week and will now miss the rest of the season. - Martin Pegan

 Jarman Impey  Ankle  Season
 Changkuoth Jiath  Knee  Season
 Harry Morrison  Hamstring  Available
 James Sicily  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Star duo Gunston and Day have been ruled out for the rest of the season after failing to overcome back and ankle injuries, respectively. After missing the past six matches with a hamstring injury, Morrison just needs to tick training off this week to be available at either level. The Hawks have also announced that Cousins' hamstring injury will see him out of action for three weeks. - Michael Whiting

 Robbie Tarrant  Adductor  Test
 Tarryn Thomas  Concussion  1-2 weeks
 Will Walker  Thumb  Test
Updated: Wednesday, July 28

Early prognosis

Cunnington had surgery during the week to remove a testicular tumour. The club said it happened quickly and it had not put a timeline on his return. The Kangaroos are hopeful that Mahony, Phillips and Tarrant will be fit to play this weekend. However, Thomas enters the AFL's 12-day concussion protocols and will miss. Dom Tyson (calf) returned through the VFL last week. - Riley Beveridge

 Tom Rockliff  DVT  TBC
 Taj Schofield  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Young defender Jones injured his left syndesmosis during a training run on Saturday and will undergo surgery, having injured his right syndesmosis earlier this season. It puts the rest of his campaign in doubt. Hayes underwent surgery on Saturday to repair a dislocated finger. Motlop will resume running this week while Orazio Fantasia comes off the injury list after recovering from a knee injury. - Nathan Schmook

 Dion Prestia  Hamstring  Test
 Ivan Soldo  Knee  Indefinite
 Nick Vlastuin  Knee/Quad  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Midfielder Prestia is expected to return to take on Fremantle after overcoming a hamstring injury and joining in recent match practice, while the Tigers consider defender Broad a slight chance to also be available so he has made the trip to Western Australia. Vlastuin and McIntosh are also nearing a return and have started taking part in the more intense efforts at training. - Martin Pegan

 Shaun McKernan  Toe  Test
 Ben Paton  Broken leg  Season
 Jack Sinclair  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Mason Wood  Back  Indefinite
Updated: Thursday, July 29

Early prognosis

Higgins is expected to return from a back complaint that has ruled him out for the past three matches. Clark could make a sooner-than-expected return from the broken jaw he sustained seven weeks ago, while Highmore is pushing to play and trained in a glove on Tuesday following hand surgery a week ago. Rowan Marshall is expected to fly back from WA after his isolation requirements end on Tuesday, however, McKenzie has been ruled out for a second consecutive week after failing concussion tests. Sinclair injured his hamstring late in the loss to West Coast with scans confirming a low-grade strain. - Mitch Cleary

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Sam Naismith  ACL  Indefinite
 Chad Warner  Shin  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

Warner is back in full training and has been building up his running loads to be ready to play this week or next. Lewis Melican has finally returned from a hamstring strain sustained in round seven that later led to Achilles tendon pain, as the defender was one of nine Swans to play for the Giants' VFL team last week. Sam Reid ended the match against Fremantle with ice on his hamstring but has pulled up OK. - Martin Pegan

 Liam Ryan  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Luke Shuey  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Zan Trew  Hamstring  Test

Updated: Wednesday, July 28

Early prognosis

Ryan suffered a hamstring strain after kicking an early goal in the Eagles' win against St Kilda and was able to jog laps on Tuesday with Shuey. Petruccelle experienced hamstring tightness after the Adelaide clash in round 19 and the Eagles decided not to risk him. Willie Rioli has also been on light duties after a hamstring setback a fortnight ago. Redden will push to return this week after three weeks sidelined with a keg injury. - Nathan Schmook

 Adam Treloar  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Lewis Young  Ankle  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 27

Early prognosis

The Bulldogs suffered a blow with Keath likely to be out until the finals due to a hamstring injury. His key defensive partner Gardner remains at least a couple of weeks away from resuming. Richards will sit out this week's clash with Adelaide under concussion protocols while Young could return from an ankle injury. - Callum Twomey
