Updated: May 24, 2022

Early prognosis

The Bombers didn't get through their loss to Richmond unscathed, with Guelfi suffering a hamstring injury and Shiel a leg concern.

Fyfe has ramped up training in his return from back surgery and had been targeting a return against Brisbane in round 12. O'Driscoll is in a moon boot and set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines.

Updated: May 24, 2022

Dangerfield is set to miss the next few weeks after being subbed out of Saturday's win over Port Adelaide due to a calf complaint. The Brownlow Medal winner is set to be put through a conditioning block and expected to return after the bye at this stage. Stanley and Narkle were both late withdrawals against the Power due to ankle concerns and will need to pass fitness tests later this week before they are cleared to return against Adelaide on Saturday. Menegola and Henry are still not available to play due to lingering concerns. Ruckman Ceglar is closing in on a return to full fitness after undergoing foot surgery. - Josh Gabelich

Updated: May 24, 2022

Hawthorn has lost another ruckman with Lynch entering health and safety protocols ahead of this weekend's trip to the Northern Territory. Reeves hasn’t been ruled out, but is unlikely to return from a dislocated shoulder. Day was substituted out of the win against Brisbane with another ankle injury, while Ward missed last weekend due to concussion and is unlikely to be available to return at any level after copping a head knock in the VFL. Gunston is also dealing with an ankle injury and set to miss at least another week. - Josh Gabelich

 Jack Higgins  H&S protocols  1 week

Updated: May 24, 2022

Skipper Steele is back in the gym after undergoing shoulder surgery with the club hopeful the dual All-Australian will be available within five weeks. Hannebery is back on the track after returning from Munich. Coffield is increasing his running loads, while Hayes has also returned from Adelaide and is in the early stages of his rehabilitation from a knee reconstruction. Higgins has entered health and safety protocols and will miss a second straight game after suffering a concussion in round nine. The small forward will still need to exit concussion protocols before he is cleared to play after the mid-season bye. - Josh Gabelich

 Harry Cunningham  Abdominal  TBC
 Josh Kennedy  Hamstring  8-10 weeks
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season

Updated: May 24, 2022
