Adelaide Crows

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jake Kelly  Concussion  Test
 Riley Knight  Achilles  2-3 weeks
 Wayne Milera  Foot  8-9 weeks
 Rory Sloane  Thigh  Test
 Tyson Stengle  Suspension  3 games
 Patrick Wilson  Shoulder  TBC
Updated: Friday, June 19

Early prognosis

It was revealed on Friday Milera has a stress fracture in his foot and needs surgery. Sloane faces an uphill battle to be back for this week's clash with Gold Coast after suffering a badly corked thigh against the Power. He attempted to play on but was severely limited and will need to pass a test later this week. Kelly will go through the concussion protocols after receiving a knock last week in the loss to Port Adelaide. - Callum Twomey

Brisbane Lions

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marcus Adams  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Stefan Martin  Hamstring   1-2 weeks
 Dayne Zorko  Achilles soreness  Test
 Updated: Friday, June 19

Early prognosis

Coach Chris Fagan revealed on Friday Martin had suffered a "slight" hamstring strain on his left leg following his first match back from PCL damage in round two. Zorko will need to prove his fitness on game day after pulling up sore following Saturday's win against Fremantle. He had been nursing Achilles soreness in the lead-up to the game has been managed this week. The club admit Adams remains in a holding pattern after foot surgery during the shutdown period..  - Mitch Cleary

Carlton

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Tom De Koning  Ankle  Test
 Paddy Dow  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Zac Fisher  Ankle  1 week
 Brodie Kemp  Knee  Season
 Matthew Kreuzer  Foot  8-10 weeks
 Caleb Marchbank  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Nic Newman  Knee  Season
 Jack Silvagni  Illness  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

The Blues should regain Silvagni, who missed last week's defeat to the Demons due to a bout of gastro. However, Dow and Fisher won't return having failed to play in Saturday morning's scratch match. Newman will miss the season after rupturing his patella, while Marchbank is likely another month or so away with bone bruising. De Koning is available for selection this week, while fellow ruckman Kreuzer is still angling for a return late in the season.Riley Beveridge

Collingwood

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Mason Cox  Knee  Test
 Levi Greenwood  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Tom Langdon  Knee  Indefinite
 Ben Reid  Calf  2-4 weeks
 Adam Treloar  Calf  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

The Pies are confident Cox should be available, having been named as an emergency last week despite a nagging knee injury. Treloar is the big question mark, though he might be another week away having barely been tested by full-contact sessions. They escaped Thursday night's draw against the Tigers with a clean bill of health. - Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Indefinite
 Sam Draper  Knee  Test
 Orazio Fantasia  Quad  Test
 Noah Gown  Foot  Test
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season
 Lachie Johnson  Knee  10-12 weeks
 Kobe Mutch  Concussion  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

The watch this week will be on Fantasia's fitness. Since injuring his quad a couple of weeks ago the small forward has made good progress and will be touch-and-go to face Melbourne this Sunday. Daniher is joining in more drills as he gets closer to full fitness, but a return date is still unclear for the key forward. - Callum Twomey 

Fremantle

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Blake Acres  Calf  1 week
 Sean Darcy  Knee  TBA
 Stefan Giro   Knee  1 week
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  TBA
 Liam Henry  Knee  3 weeks
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  TBA
 Sam Switkowski  Back  TBA
 Nathan Wilson  Back   Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

The Dockers' biggest concern from the weekend was the knee injury to No.1 ruckman Darcy. Scans have cleared him of any ACL or PCL concerns, but he has some soft tissue damage which will require treatment. Acres took a calf cork into last Thursday's training session and he suffered a small strain which will keep him out against the Power. Wilson was a late withdrawal against the Lions after twinging his back on the flight to the Gold Coast, but he is a chance to return on Sunday. - Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Nakia Cockatoo   Hamstring  Indefinite
 Josh Jenkins  Back  Test
 Jake Kolodjashnij  Hip  Test
 Stefan Okunbor  Achilles  Indefinite
 Gary Rohan  Knee  Test 
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

Jack Steven has been cleared to play, with a decision to come at the selection table as to whether he faces the Blues. Kolodjashnij wasn't risked last week and will come into consideration this week. Rohan twisted his knee against the Hawks but should be fine to play, while Jenkins will be out to prove he's over a back complaint. - Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Sam Day  Back  Available
 Brandon Ellis  Calf  Test
 George Horlin-Smith  Foot  TBC
 Anthony Miles  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Izak Rankine  Hamstring  Test
 Mitch Riordan  ACL  Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

The Suns will get co-captain David Swallow back from suspension, while Ellis will also rejoin full training in a bid to get back from his calf strain. The club is taking a slow approach with Rankine, while key tall Day is fine to play despite a heavy knee to the back last week against West Coast. - Callum Twomey

GWS Giants

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Matt Flynn  Knee  3-4 weeks
 Tom Hutchesson  Hamstring   Test
 Adam Kennedy   Hamstring  Test
 Tim Taranto   Shoulder  4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

The club is being cautious with Kennedy's hamstring and he was unavailable last week against the Kangaroos. After Callan Ward and Zac Williams returned from injury last week the Giants have a very fit list, with Taranto another month off being available from his shoulder surgery. - Callum Twomey 

Hawthorn

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Dan Howe  Foot  Indefinite
 Jarman Impey  Knee  3-5 weeks
 Changkuoth Jiath  Hamstring  1 week
 Jaeger O'Meara  Facial fracture  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

Doctors cleared O'Meara for contact training on Tuesday and the gun midfielder is set to return for Thursday night's clash with reigning premier Richmond in a timely boost. That's after Blake Hardwick (ruptured pectoral muscle) made his return in last week's loss to Geelong. The player everyone is watching for is Impey, who is still projected for a July return. Tom Mitchell is dealing with a sore right shoulder but isn't expected to miss any games. - Marc McGowan

Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marty Hore  Toe  5-7 weeks
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Harry Petty  Hip/groin  Indefinite
 Braydon Preuss  Achilles  3-4 weeks
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

The Demons have a pretty healthy list, with none of their first-choice players on the sidelines, and they escaped unscathed from Saturday's narrow win over Carlton. Preuss' frustrating second season at Melbourne includes knee and now Achilles setbacks, but he’s at least running again, while Kolodjashnij and Petty have dealt with their issues since the pre-season. Hore has spent time away from the club, but will return next week to start rehabilitating his fractured toe. Harley Bennell (calf) and Aaron vandenBerg (foot) pulled up well from their senior and practice matches, respectively. Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Charlie Comben  Back/Knee  TBC
 Luke Davies-Uniacke  Groin  TBC
 Majak Daw  Chest  2 weeks
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  5 weeks
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  TBC
 Nick Larkey  Foot  3-4 weeks
 Flynn Perez  Knee  TBC
 Kayne Turner  Sesamoid/foot  3-4 weeks
 Dom Tyson  Calf  1 week
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Turf toe  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

North is being cautious with Larkey's foot issue and he will be held back for another few weeks until he is reporting no pain. Tyson's shocking luck with calf injuries has continued after he was restricted to only three games last year. His history means the Roos are likely to be cautious with his recovery but it appears to be only minor. Lockdown defender Marley Williams is available after missing the first two rounds through suspension for his high bump on Dog Ed Richards. - Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Trent Burgoyne  Leg  2-3 weeks
 Ryan Burton   Knee  Test
 Tobin Cox  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Willem Drew  Foot  5-7 weeks
 Mitch Georgiades  Calf  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

There is concern around Burton's availability, after the youngster failed to finish Saturday night's Showdown due to a sprained knee. He'll undergo a fitness test later this week. However, in better news, young forward Georgiades should return from a minor calf injury. - Riley Beveridge

Richmond

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Josh Caddy  Calf  Test
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season
Updated: Monday, June 15

Early prognosis

Caddy missed round two with a minor calf complaint, but will be in contention to return for Thursday night's clash against Hawthorn if gets through training. Draftee Cumberland will miss the entire season after rupturing his ACL at training in May. - Ben Sutton

St Kilda

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Oscar Clavarino  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Jarryn Geary  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Darragh Joyce  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

Scans on Monday confirmed Geary has sustained a hamstring strain that will sideline him for at least this week against Collingwood. Joyce and Clavarino have returned to running, but will need to impress on the track to earn selection. - Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Joel Amartey  Hamstring  2 weeks
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  TBC
 Michael Knoll  Knee  5-7 weeks
 Sam Naismith  Hamstring  Test
 Sam Reid  Calf  3-4 weeks
 Jackson Thurlow  Calf  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

Coach John Longmire ruled out No.1 ruckman Naismith post-match on Sunday and he remains unlikely to face North Melbourne but football boss Charlie Gardiner left the door ajar. That means Callum Sinclair will again shoulder the ruck duties. There were no fresh concerns from the weekend. Ben Ronke (knee) played about 80 minutes in a practice game at the weekend and is available for selection. Thurlow is nearing a return but neither Franklin nor Reid is expected to play soon. Reid has resumed running on the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill but is still a few weeks away from playing. - Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jarrod Cameron  Pubic bone  Test
 Mark Hutchings  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Jeremy McGovern  Suspension  1 game
 Mitch O'Neill  Back  Indefinite
 Luke Shuey  Soreness  Test
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

Shuey did little at training on Monday after a bruising loss to the Suns left him with ice on his right thigh late in the match. Hutchings is edging towards a return to full training, while Cameron will continue to build fitness after an interrupted couple of months. O'Neill has remained at home with family while his teammates are settled on the Gold Coast. - Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Ben Cavarra  Hand  2-3 weeks
 Taylor Duryea  Quad  3-4 weeks
 Riley Garcia  Knee  Indefinite
 Lachie Hunter  Club suspension  3 games
 Roarke Smith  Quad  Test
 Easton Wood  Quad  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 16

Early prognosis

Wood and Duryea are both set to miss 3-4 weeks with quad strains, while Smith is back in full training after battling quad tightness. Cavarra was listed as an emergency for round two but was pulled out after getting his hand stood on during Saturday's captain's run. He's set to miss 2-3 weeks following surgery. - Jourdan Canil

*Placed on the club's long-term injury list
