Adelaide Crows

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Rory Atkins  Shoulder  TBC
 Riley Knight  Achilles  1-2 weeks
 Wayne Milera  Foot  8-9 weeks
 Tyson Stengle  Suspension  2 games
 Patrick Wilson  Shoulder  TBC
Updated: Monday, June 22

Early prognosis

Atkins suffered a 'high-grade' AC joint injury in his shoulder in the Crows' loss to Gold Coast on Sunday and sat out the second half. The Crows have a relatively fit list, which is adding an extra layer of concern to their early-season horrors. - Callum Twomey

Brisbane Lions

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marcus Adams  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Stefan Martin  Hamstring   Test
 Dayne Zorko  Achilles soreness  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

Zorko will need to prove his fitness this week after he was a late withdrawal against the Eagles. The Lions are hopeful Martin's slight left hamstring strain won't keep him sidelined for long, but he'll also need to complete main training in order to tackle the Crows. Adams remains a couple of weeks off. - Mitch Cleary

Carlton

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Paddy Dow  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Zac Fisher  Ankle  Test
 Brodie Kemp  Knee  Season
 Matthew Kreuzer  Foot  7-9 weeks
 Caleb Marchbank  Knee  1-3 weeks
 Nic Newman  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

The Blues have no new injury concerns stemming from Saturday night's victory over the Cats. They'd like to give Fisher a scratch match before he's available for senior selection, so don't expect him for another week, while Dow and Marchbank are still a while away. Tom De Koning played last week's scratch match having recovered from an ankle problem and is now available. - Riley Beveridge

Collingwood

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Levi Greenwood  Knee  1-3 weeks
 Tom Langdon  Knee  Indefinite
 Ben Reid  Calf  1-3 weeks
 Adam Treloar  Calf  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

The Pies could play it safe with Treloar, who got through a scratch match last weekend but is recovering from a series of troublesome soft tissue injuries. Mason Cox also played in that scratch match after dealing with a knee problem and should be available for senior selection. In more good news, veterans Greenwood and Reid are closing in on returns from respective long-term injury layoffs.. - Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Indefinite
 Sam Draper  Knee  Test
 Orazio Fantasia  Quad  Test
 Noah Gown  Foot  Test
 Dyson Heppell  Ankle   TBC
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season
 Lachie Johnson  Knee  10-12 weeks
 Conor McKenna  Illness  TBC
 Kobe Mutch  Wrist  3-4 weeks
Updated: Monday, June 22

Early prognosis

The Bombers players and staff remain in isolation after McKenna's positive COVID-19 test. Fantasia could be available after his quad strain for this week's clash with Carlton if the game proceeds, but Heppell will miss most of the season after breaking his ankle last week in a training mishap. - Callum Twomey 

Fremantle

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Blake Acres  Calf  1 week
 Sean Darcy  Knee  Test
 Stefan Giro   Ankle  TBA
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  TBA
 Liam Henry  Knee  2 weeks
 Stephen Hill  Calf  Test
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  TBA
 Sam Sturt  Ankle  3-5 weeks
 Sam Switkowski  Back  TBA
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

The pleasing news out of Freo is Darcy's quick recovery from the knee injury sustained in round two. He is set to train on Thursday and will be a test for the clash against Gold Coast. Hill was named to make his return last weekend before being a late out with a corked calf. The veteran should be available for selection if he gets through training. Acres' recovery has been slightly slower than expected and he remains a week away. Sturt's nasty ankle roll against the Power will keep him out for around a month. - Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Oscar Brownless  Shoulder  TBC
 Luke Dahlhaus  Concussion  Test
 Josh Jenkins  Back  Test
 Sam Menegola  Back  Test
 Stefan Okunbor  Achilles  Indefinite
 Brandan Parfitt  Hamstring  Available
 Rhys Stanley  Knee   TBC
 Jake Tarca  Quad  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

Scans showed Stanley had suffered a medial ligament sprain, with the Cats working out the next course of action. He appears unlikely to face Max Gawn and the Demons. The eight-day break will assist Dahlhaus' hopes after he was ruled out of the second half against Carlton due to concussion. Parfitt's hamstring soreness meant he was a late withdrawal and he'll push his case for a recall at main training on Thursday. Menegola copped a knock to his back against the Blues and will be monitored. Second-year youngsters Brownless and Tarca are also both dealing with setbacks. Nakia Cockatoo played a large chunk of last week's scratch match and will build continue to his fitness base. - Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 George Horlin-Smith  Foot  TBC
 Anthony Miles  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Mitch Riordan  ACL  Season
Updated: Monday, June 22

Early prognosis

After the return of Brandon Ellis last week against Adelaide, the Suns have a very fit list to choose from as they head into Saturday's clash with Fremantle. Izak Rankine is available for selection but will need to get in some match practice before that long-awaited debut. - Callum Twomey

GWS Giants

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Matt Flynn  Knee  1 week
 Toby Greene  Knee  Test
 Tom Hutchesson  Hamstring   3 weeks
 Josh Kelly  Calf  Test
 Sam Reid  Calf  3-5 weeks
 Tim Taranto   Shoulder  2-4 weeks
 Lachie Whitfield  Concussion  Test
Updated: Monday, June 22

Early prognosis

The Giants are sweating on some big names to be ready for this Friday night's crunch clash with Collingwood. Kelly, Greene and Whitfield will all need to get through tests before facing the Magpies at Giants Stadium, with Kelly and Greene missing last week's loss to the Bulldogs and Whitfield missing most of the game after his head knock. - Callum Twomey 

Hawthorn

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Ricky Henderson  Concussion  Test
 Dan Howe  Foot  Indefinite
 Jarman Impey  Knee  2-4 weeks
 Changkuoth Jiath  Hamstring  Test
 Paul Puopolo  Calf  Test
 Mathew Walker  Ankle  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

Puopolo was a late withdrawal from the Hawks' round three game against Richmond after reporting calf soreness from the previous day's training session. Ricky Henderson also hurt himself and didn't finish the match. Impey is edging closer to a return from his knee reconstruction, while Howe is making progress as well but is further away. Category B rookie Jiath might be available to play in a scratch match. Marc McGowan

Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marty Hore  Quad/Toe  Indefinite
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Harry Petty  Groin  Indefinite
 Braydon Preuss  Achilles  3-4 weeks
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

Hore's hard-luck season continued when he tore a quadriceps tendon in a gym accident, at a time he was still recovering from a fractured toe. He will now undergo surgery, as will Petty, who sought advice from a Sydney specialist on his long-term groin problem. The Demons came through unscathed from their impromptu intraclub game at the MCG on Sunday.Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Charlie Comben  Back/Knee  TBC
 Ben Cunnington  Back  Test
 Luke Davies-Uniacke  Groin  TBC
 Majak Daw  Chest  Test
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  4 weeks
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  TBC
 Nick Larkey  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Flynn Perez  Knee  TBC
 Kayne Turner  Sesamoid/foot  2-3 weeks
 Dom Tyson  Calf  Test
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Turf toe  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

Cunnington was unable to play last week because of a sore back, but should be right to return for Sunday's Hawks clash. Daw is nearing a return from his pectoral muscle tear, and is likely to play in the club's scratch match against Hawthorn. Larkey, Turner and Vickers-Willis have been tracking similarly for weeks, while Tyson should be good to go after taking it easy in the past week. Davies-Uniacke also continues to make progress and hopes to rejoin the main training group soon.Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Trent Burgoyne  Leg  1-2 weeks
 Ryan Burton   Knee  2-3 weeks
 Tobin Cox  Quad  1 week
 Willem Drew  Foot  4-6 weeks
 Xavier Duursma  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

The Power suffered a big blow last weekend when they lost impressive youngster Duursma, who may miss up to a month due to a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, Burton is still a couple of weeks away from returning from a sprained knee. However, Mitch Georgiades was an emergency last week after recovering from a calf problem and will be available for senior selection this week. - Riley Beveridge

Richmond

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season
 Will Martyn  Foot  2-4 weeks
 Dustin Martin  Ribs  Test
 Bigoa Nyuon  Shoulder  3-5 weeks
Updated: Monday, June 22

Early prognosis

All eyes will be on Martin this week after the superstar missed last week's loss to Hawthorn with bruised ribs. Given the injury was on the minor end, expect the Brownlow medallist to return for Saturday's clash with the Saints. Youngsters Martyn and Nyuon picked up injuries in the scratch match against Pies, while 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  Test
 Jarryn Geary  Hamstring  Test
 Darragh Joyce  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

Geary will mount his case for a recall at main training this week after missing the loss to Collingwood with a minor hamstring strain. Both Clavarino and Joyce are working back to full training loads. - Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Joel Amartey  Hamstring  1 week
 Kaiden Brand  Ankle  TBC
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  TBC
 Michael Knoll  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Tom McCartin  Concussion  1 week
 Sam Naismith  Hamstring  Test
 Sam Reid  Calf  2-3 weeks
 Jackson Thurlow  Calf  Test
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

The Swans will take a conservative approach with McCartin's latest concussion and he won't face the Bulldogs on Thursday night. McCartin's brother, Paddy, is sitting out this AFL season after sustaining repeated concussions in his career. However, Naismith, who hasn't played since round one, could return after ramping up his training at the weekend. Sydney is confident Brand's ankle issue isn't as bad as first expected but he will miss more games. Reid aims to join skills training this week, while Franklin has started running on the AlterG. - Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jarrod Cameron  Pubic bone  Available
 Mark Hutchings  Knee  4-5 weeks
 Callum Jamieson  Shoulder  Test
 Jeremy McGovern  Ankle  Test
 Mitch O'Neill  Back  Indefinite
 Nic Reid  Hamstring  Available
 Liam Ryan  Corked calf  Test
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
Updated: Wednesday, June 24

Early prognosis

McGovern was sent for scans after injuring his right ankle in Saturday morning's scratch match against the Lions. While they showed he had escaped serious damage, the Eagles will need to wait for swelling to dissipate to see how much of main training he can complete. Ryan also copped a knock to his calf that will need to be managed. Hutchings has suffered a knee setback which has pushed him back a month. Reid and Cameron both played reduced minutes in the scratch match with the Lions as they build fitness. Jamieson will be hoping to complete scratch match minutes in the near future. - Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Ben Cavarra  Hand  Test
 Josh Dunkley  Ankle  6-8 weeks
 Taylor Duryea  Quad  2-3 weeks
 Riley Garcia  Knee  Indefinite
 Lachie Hunter  Club suspension  2 games
 Easton Wood  Quad  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, June 23

Early prognosis

Star midfielder Dunkley is set to miss at least six weeks with a syndesmosis injury in his left ankle, but coach Luke Beveridge is hopeful of an earlier return for the ball magnet. Cavarra has re-joined the main training group sporting a protective glove. Wood is a little further ahead in his recovery than expected and will re-join the main group for training next week. - Jourdan Canil

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