 Brett Turner  Foot  1-2 weeks
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

Scans cleared Thilthorpe of any structural damage after he rolled an ankle in a marking contest against Gold Coast, with the forward/ruck to be on a modified program this week. Recruit Brett Turner will join training this week and is expected to play his first game for the Crows soon after arriving mid-season with a foot injury. – Nathan Schmook 

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Darcy Gardiner  Lungs  4 weeks
 Kai Lohmann  Ankle  Test
 Dayne Zorko  Hamstring  Test
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

Zorko took part in the Lions' main training session on Tuesday and got through it strongly, but his availability for Thursday night's blockbuster against Melbourne will come down to how he recovers over the ensuing 24 hours.  Michael Whiting

 Jacob Weitering  Shoulder  3 weeks
 Zac Williams  Calf  5-7 weeks
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

The Blues will be without another key defender for the next month, after Durdin was injured on debut. Martin is still an outside chance to feature this weekend, but Cerra is another week away. McGovern, Pittonet and Weitering are still the best part of a month away from comebacks. Riley Beveridge

 Charlie Dean  Foot  Available
 Brodie Grundy  Knee  4 weeks
 Nathan Kreuger  Shoulder  Season
 Jack Madgen  Shoulder  Test
 Reef McInnes  Shoulder  Season
 Tom Wilson  Back  Season
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

Mature-age recruit Dean is set to play his first game in black and white in the VFL this Saturday after completing his recovery from a foot issue that arose on the eve of the season, just when he was set for a senior debut. Madgen is likely to play in the VFL after recovering from a shoulder injury. Grundy is building up his running and developing his strength in the gym as he aims for a round 18 return from a PCL injury. – Josh Gabelich

 Andrew McGrath  Adductor  2-3 weeks
 Darcy Parish  Calf  Test
 Zach Reid  Ankle  Test
 Devon Smith  Knee  Indefinite
 James Stewart  Foot  2-3 weeks
Updated: June 21, 2022

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN

 Jye Amiss  Kidney  Inactive
 Heath Chapman  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Nathan O'Driscoll  Foot  TBA
 Sam Switkowski  Back  TBA
 Josh Treacy  Ankle  TBA
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

Switkowski has a stress fracture in his back and faces an uncertain recovery timeframe. He requires a period of no running and a follow-up scan before being cleared to resume training. Treacy's ankle injury is a high grade lateral ligament injury, but he has avoided syndesmosis damage. Chapman is not yet ready to return from a standard hamstring injury. – Nathan Schmook

 Gary Rohan  H&S protocols  Available
 Sam Simpson  Concussion  TBC
 Paul Tsapatolis  Ankle  TBC
 James Willis  Knee  TBC
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

Brownlow medallist Dangerfield is likely to return for Saturday's blockbuster against Richmond at the MCG after the club chose to put the midfielder through an extra week of training rather than taking him across to Perth to face West Coast. Rohan has been cleared to play after exiting the AFL's health and safety protocols, while Higgins could play for the first time since round seven. Parfitt is going through a conditioning block while his hand recovers from surgery after he broke it against the Western Bulldogs before the bye. Josh Gabelich

 Wil Powell  Ankle  Season
 Bodhi Uwland  Back  Indefinite
 Lachie Weller  Knee  Season
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

Good and bad news for the Suns. Budarick's hamstring problem is not as bad as first feared and he's now an outside chance to play Port Adelaide on Sunday. Jeffrey suffered a lateral meniscus tear late in the win over Adelaide and will undergo surgery. The Suns will then be in a better position to determine how long he misses.  Michael Whiting

Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

The Giants can't take a trick with confirmation debutant Angwin and impressive youngster Peatling would both miss time following injuries against the Western Bulldogs at the weekend. After a long stint on the sidelines, Lloyd is a test to play this weekend and could be available to face Collingwood. Michael Whiting

Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

The Demons will be without ruck options Gawn and Daw for around a month each, while key defender Turner is set to undergo surgery and will also be sidelined for about four weeks. McDonald is facing a race against the clock to return this season, having been ruled out for close to three months. Steven May (club suspension) will return this weekend, while Melksham should also be passed fit to play.  Riley Beveridge

 Lachie Young  Suspension  Round 16
 Jack Ziebell  Face  3-4 weeks
 Cam Zurhaar  Foot  Test
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

The Kangaroos expect Bonar, McKay and Zurhaar to return this weekend. The club's mid-season recruit, Dawson, is also likely to make his VFL debut after arriving at Arden Street with a minor injury. Polec is still a bit of time away from a comeback, while the injured Ziebell joins the suspended duo Horne-Francis and Young on the sidelines. Riley Beveridge

 Noah Balta  Hamstring  2-4 weeks
 Trent Cotchin  Clavicle  1-3 weeks
 Dustin Martin  Illness  Test
 Robbie Tarrant  Hand  Test
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

Martin is highly likely to play against Geelong, having been training since Saturday following an illness. Tarrant, meanwhile, is touch-and-go, given he had minor hand surgery at the start of the week. Cotchin will have a plate inserted to support his collarbone, with a more accurate timeline to be set after that operation, while Balta has re-injured his hamstring but in a different spot. – Sarah Black

 Daniel McKenzie  Concussion  Available
 Mitch Owens  Concussion  TBC
 Jack Steele  Shoulder  Test
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

St Kilda is set to be boosted by the return of captain Steele for the trip to Sydney to face the Swans. The dual Therabody All-Australian has missed four games since undergoing shoulder surgery. McKenzie has passed concussion protocols and will be available for selection, but Owens is yet to exit the protocols and is expected to miss. – Josh Gabelich

 Peter Ladhams  Suspension  Round 16
 Josh Kennedy  Hamstring  5-7 weeks
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Angus Sheldrick  Knee  Test
Updated: June 21, 2022

Naitanui trained fully on Tuesday and looks close to making a full recovery from a medial ligament injury. Tim Kelly, Liam Ryan and Samo Petrevski-Seton have all recovered from illness and returned to the club after missing round 14. – Nathan Schmook

 Toby McLean  Knee  Test
 Charlie Parker  Hamstring  4-6 weeks
 Bailey Smith  Suspension  Round 18
 Laitham Vandermeer  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Cody Weightman  Elbow  Test
Updated: June 21, 2022

Early prognosis

With his history of concussion and a Thursday game in round 16, English could miss two matches after suffering a delayed concussion following the win over GWS last week. Duryea has avoided a dreaded ACL tear, but will like be out until finals, while Weightman is unlikely after a gruesome elbow injury last week. In good news, Toby McLean will return in the VFL this week after recovering from his second ACL injury.
