Adelaide Crows

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Rory Atkins  Shoulder  Test
 Darcy Fogarty  Shoulder  1 week
 Jordan Gallucci  Achilles  Season
 Wayne Milera  Foot  4 weeks
 Rory Sloane  Hand  4-6 weeks
 Taylor Walker  Knee  Test
Updated: Wednesday, July 15

Early prognosis

Another week and another injury concern for Sloane, who has had his fitness battles this season. This time it's a significant one, with the Adelaide co-captain undergoing surgery for a thumb fracture. It will see him miss at least the next month. Walker is expected to be available from his knee injury, while Atkins has made a faster than expected recovery and the Crows think he will be ready to tackle St Kilda next Monday. - Callum Twomey

Brisbane Lions

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marcus Adams  Foot  6 weeks
 Cameron Ellis-Yolmen  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Hugh McCluggage  Shoulder  Test
 Connor McFayden  Knee  Season
 Mitch Robinson  Quad  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

The only question marks are over McCluggage and Robinson, but the Lions are confident both will play against GWS on Saturday with the nine day break between games. - Michael Whiting

Carlton

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Patrick Cripps  Shoulder  Test
 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Paddy Dow  Knee  Test
 Brodie Kemp  Knee  Season
 Matthew Kreuzer  Foot  4-6 weeks
 Caleb Marchbank  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Marc Murphy  Hip  Test
 Nic Newman  Knee  Season
Jack Silvagni    Ribs  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

The Blues remain hopeful scans will clear Cripps (shoulder) and Murphy (hip) of any serious damage, with the important duo both finishing Sunday night's win over the Dogs on the bench. Silvagni should put his name in contention to play this week after missing a fortnight due to a fractured rib, while Dow and Marchbank are outside chances to return from respective knee issues. - Riley Beveridge

Collingwood

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Josh Daicos  Ankle  Test
 Jamie Elliott  Shin  Test
 Levi Greenwood  Knee  1-3 weeks
 Jeremy Howe   Knee  Indefinite
 Will Kelly  Elbow  Season
 Tom Langdon  Knee  Indefinite
 Ben Reid  Calf  Test
 Trey Ruscoe  Hamstring  1 week
 Matthew Scharenberg  Ribs  Test
 Steele Sidebottom  Suspension  3 matches
 Anton Tohill  Concussion  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

The Pies have a number of injury concerns ahead of Thursday night's clash with the Cats. They expect Daicos to recover from an ankle injury in time to be available for selection, while Elliott (shin) and Scharenberg (ribs) should also be fit having finished last week's match on the bench. Reid should come into contention again soon after a long layoff with a calf issue, but youngster Kelly will miss the remainder of the season after being sent for surgery on a nasty elbow injury. - Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Patrick Ambrose  Foot  TBC
 Tom Cutler  Calf  Test
 Joe Daniher  Groin  Indefinite
 Dyson Heppell  Ankle   8-10 weeks
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season
 Lachie Johnson  Knee  6-8 weeks
 Conor McKenna  Finger  Test
 Kobe Mutch  Wrist  Test
 Jake Stringer  Ankle  6-8 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

The Bombers are hopeful McKenna could face the Western Bulldogs despite having surgery on his finger this week but it will be touch and go. Daniher’s calf setback will see him sidelined with the strain for at least two weeks, meaning it pushes back his return from his groin troubles again. Cutler faces a test while Heppell continues his recovery from ankle surgery. - Callum Twomey 

Fremantle

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Reece Conca  Hamstring  1 week
 Brennan Cox  Hip  Test
 Sean Darcy  Concussion  TBA
 Stefan Giro   Ankle  3-4 weeks
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  TBA
 Jesse Hogan  Calf  2-3 weeks
 Griffin Logue  Toe  TBA
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  TBA
 Sam Sturt  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Sam Switkowski  Back  TBA
 Hayden Young  Ankle  TBA
Updated: Monday, July 13

Early prognosis

Cox was a late out for the epic win over St Kilda but should be fit for Sunday's derby against West Coast. The two casualties from the Saints clash were Darcy (concussion) and Young (ankle) and the Dockers need more time to assess their recovery. Skipper Nat Fyfe picked up a cork in his left leg and felt some awareness in the right hamstring that caused him to miss a game, but he is confident he will face the Eagles. Sturt injured his ankle at training last Thursday and will be out for a fortnight, while Conca is progressing well from his low-grade hamstring strain and should return next week. - Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Tom Atkins  Ribs  2-3 weeks
 Oscar Brownless  Shoulder  3-4 weeks
 Mitch Duncan  Hamstring  Test
 Josh Jenkins  Back  1-2 weeks
 Quinton Narkle  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Stefan Okunbor  Achilles  Indefinite
 Rhys Stanley  Knee   1-2 weeks
 Tom Stewart  Shoulder  2-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

Duncan is more unlikely than likely after being removed from the win over Brisbane with a minor hamstring strain at quarter-time. With an 11-day break to follow Thursday night, don't be surprised if the Cats hold him till then. Narkle's injury is more severe and he will be sidelined for most of the three-week stay in WA. The Cats believe Atkins' injury is now medium term, while Jenkins isn't expected in match practice this week. Stewart is making quick progress from surgery a fortnight ago and will join in parts of training this week. - Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 George Horlin-Smith  Foot  3 weeks
 Mitch Riordan  Knee  Season
 Matt Rowell  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Rory Thompson  Knee  3 weeks
 Luke Towey  Eye   3-4 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

No new injuries for the Suns from their loss to Melbourne. Nick Holman copped a knee in the ribs but is fine to resume his place against Sydney on Saturday. - Michael Whiting

GWS Giants

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Isaac Cumming  Hamstring  8-10 weeks
 Tom Hutcheson  Hamstring  Test
 Adam Kennedy  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Daniel Lloyd  Concussion  Test
 Sam Reid  Calf  2 weeks
 Sam Taylor  Back  TBC
 Callan Ward  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Zac Williams  Hamstring  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

Lloyd suffered delayed concussion against Port Adelaide on Sunday so will be monitored this week. The Giants will lose Callan Ward to his knee injury for the next month at least which is a blow for the former skipper while doubt also surrounds the return date for Taylor, who faces a stint of at least several weeks on the sidelines as he deals with a bacterial infection in two joints. Speedy half-back Williams is not quiet ready to return. - Callum Twomey 

Hawthorn

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Luke Breust  Fractured jaw  2 weeks
 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Dan Howe  Foot  2 weeks
 Mitch Lewis  Hip  Test
 Conor Nash  Shoulder  Test
 Jon Patton  Hamstring  4 weeks
 Jack Scrimshaw  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Mathew Walker  Ankle  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

Patton is back on the sidelines because of a hamstring setback on Friday night, after missing the previous fortnight with a foot blister that became infected. Scrimshaw will also be missing for several more weeks, while Lewis' setback ended up being to his hip rather than upper hamstring and he could play this weekend. Jarman Impey (knee) and Changkuoth Jiath (hamstring) impressed in their returns via a weekend scratch match against the Giants. Impey played three quarters and will ramp it up this weekend. Nash hurt a shoulder in match simulation a couple of weeks ago and didn't play in the practice game. - Marc McGowan

Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marty Hore  Quad/Toe  Indefinite
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Tom McDonald  Eye  Test
 Harry Petty  Groin  Indefinite
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

McDonald missed most of Saturday night's win over Gold Coast after copping an accidental poke to his right eye from Sun Charlie Ballard. He went to hospital after having some vision issues and was seen with a patch across that side of his face while on the bench but has recovered well. A decision on his playing status will be made later in the week. Outside of McDonald, the Demons again came through the weekend, including their scratch match against Sydney, without any concerns. Nathan Jones (soreness) played in the practice match after missing the previous week, while Charlie Spargo (ankle) wasn't listed on the injury report.Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jed Anderson  Quad  Test
 Charlie Comben  Back/Knee  TBC
 Ben Cunnington  Back  Test
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  TBC
 Flynn Perez  Knee  TBC
 Tarryn Thomas  Ankle  TBC
 Dom Tyson  Calf  1 week
 Ed Vickers-Willis  Turf toe  1 week
 Will Walker  Quad  Test
 Jack Ziebell  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

Cunnington is the big one here. He's missed three of the past four games and football boss Brady Rawlings says the 29-year-old won't return until he completes a full week of training, so he remains in doubt. Thomas is a concern, too, with the ankle he hurt on Saturday night and is set to miss some time. However, Ziebell is a good chance to be back after a fortnight out, while Anderson needs to pass a fitness test after being a late withdrawal last weekend. Scans confirmed Curtis Taylor escaped a facial fracture from his clash with Dylan Shiel. Nick Larkey (foot) and Luke Davies-Uniacke (groin) came through unscathed in limited minutes in North's scratch match against Essendon. Walker could play this week after missing the same practice game. - Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Willem Drew  Foot  1-3 weeks
 Xavier Duursma  Hamstring  Test
 Brad Ebert  Suspension  1 match
 Steven Motlop  Concussion  Test
 Cam Sutcliffe  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

The Power will put Duursma through his paces later this week in an attempt to ensure he's fit to return from a hamstring issue, while Motlop is being monitored after suffering a concussion in Sunday's win over the Giants. Sutcliffe will miss the majority of the next month, having also hurt his hamstring in the side's victory over the weekend. - Riley Beveridge

Richmond

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 David Astbury  Knee  Test
 Trent Cotchin  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season
 Shane Edwards  Personal  Indefinite
 Bachar Houli  Personal  Indefinite
 Will Martyn  Foot  2-4 weeks
 Toby Nankervis  Ankle  4-8 weeks
 Bigoa Nyuon  Shoulder  2-4 weeks
 Dion Prestia  Ankle  4-8 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

No fresh concerns from Sunday's win over Sydney, but skipper Cotchin looks set to miss at least another week with his hamstring. Astbury has made a quicker than expected recovery from knee surgery and is a sneaky chance to return this week. Prestia and Nankervis are recovering from surgery in Melbourne, while Houli and Edwards opted to remain home with their families and will be out indefinitely. - Ben Sutton

St Kilda

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Luke Dunstan  Pectoral muscle  8-10 weeks
 Ben Long  Suspension  TBC
 Dan Hannebery  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

The Saints escaped the loss to Fremantle without any major injury worries. Hannebery is at least a fortnight away, while Dunstan will be hoping he can put his hand up for selection by season's end. - Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Joel Amartey  Groin  Test
 Kaiden Brand  Groin  2 weeks
 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Isaac Heeney  Ankle  Season
 Josh Kennedy  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Michael Knoll  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Lewis Melican  Groin  1-2 weeks
 Tom McCartin  Concussion  Test
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Ben Ronke  Back  7-8 weeks
 Callum Sinclair  Knee  Test
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

The Swans suffered a double whammy with stars Kennedy and Heeney going down. Heeney won't play again until 2021 after dislocating and rupturing an ankle, for which he underwent surgery on Monday afternoon. He will be in a moonboot for the next month. Kennedy will miss at least the next four weeks with a torn medial ligament. Franklin has increased his running but is still "a few weeks away", football boss Charlie Gardiner says. Sam Reid played limited minutes in his return in a scratch game against Melbourne at the weekend and is an outside chance to play seniors. McCartin has now missed the past three games with concussion symptoms but will train on Thursday. - Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jarrod Brander  Hip/back  Test
 Mark Hutchings  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Jamaine Jones  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Mitch O'Neill  Back  Indefinite
 Jack Petruccelle  Hamstring  4-6 weeks
 Luke Shuey  Hamstring  Test
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

Shuey's fitness will dominate the Eagles' thinking ahead of Sunday's Derby. Jones remains a further step back, while Hutchings is nearing a return to full training. Brander has now missed two weeks and will need to pass main training this week in order to put his hand up for selection. Petruccelle suffered a serious hamstring injury in last week's scratch match against Brisbane. - Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Josh Dunkley  Ankle  4-6 weeks
 Taylor Duryea  Quad  4-6 weeks
 Riley Garcia  Knee  Indefinite
 Ryan Gardner  Calf  Test
 Lin Jong  Ankle  4-6 weeks
 Sam Lloyd  Collarbone  Test
 Aaron Naughton  Ankle  4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, July 14

Early prognosis

Hayden Crozier has served his one-match ban and should come straight back into the side. Lloyd is ahead of schedule and joined a longer training session last Friday with the players who missed out on senior selection. Dunkley returned to running on Tuesday but is still a while off - Jourdan Canil
