 Wayne Milera  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Ayce Taylor  Hamstring  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Debutant Butts missed Tuesday night's clash with Hawthorn after copping a knock to the ribs but there was good news in the return of Brad Crouch (hamstring) and Daniel Talia (knee) against the Hawks. Milera and Lynch will both be aiming to play again before the end of the season as the Crows aim to salvage something from a horror year.

Brisbane Lions

 Marcus Adams  Foot  TBC
 Stefan Martin  Back  2-4 weeks
 Lincoln McCarthy  Suspension  1 match
 Connor McFadyen  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

After missing the previous match against St Kilda, veteran defender Daniel Rich will return for Friday night's blockbuster against Collingwood. Martin has resumed training and it's hoped he'll be available by the end of the home and away season. - Michael Whiting


 Charlie Curnow  Knee  Season
 Patrick Cripps  Knee  Test

 Nic Newman  Knee  Season
 Ben Silvagni  Shoulder  Season
 Jack Silvagni  Knee  2-3 weeks
 Liam Stocker  Personal  Indefinite
 Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Carlton has decisions to make on a host of key players ahead of a simply must-win clash with Greater Western Sydney on Thursday night. Cripps will face a fitness test following a knee injury sustained in the dying stages of the loss to Collingwood, while McGovern is nearing a return from a hamstring strain. Time is running out for Marchbank to play at AFL level this season.Riley Beveridge


 Flynn Appleby  Hamstring  Test
 Dayne Beams  Mental health  Indefinite
 Jordan De Goey  Finger  1-2 weeks
 Jeremy Howe   Knee  2-3 weeks
 Will Kelly  Elbow  Season
 Chris Mayne  Cheekbone  2-4 weeks
 Ben Reid  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Steele Sidebottom  Personal  Indefinite
 Brayden Sier  Quad  2-3 weeks
 Adam Treloar  Hamstring   1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Collingwood is hopeful De Goey and Treloar will return before finals, but Howe, Mayne and Sidebottom could miss the remainder of the home and away season. All would be significant absences, given the side is no guarantee to finish in the top eight. Sier and Reid are also a bit further back in their recoveries. - Riley Beveridge

Essendon Bombers

 Patrick Ambrose  Foot  Indefinite
 Tom Bellchambers  Knee  1 week
 Ned Cahill  Quad  1-2 weeks
 Orazio Fantasia  Calf  4-5 weeks
 Aaron Francis  Hamstring  1 week
 Tom Hird  Foot  Season
 Lachlan Johnson  Knee  Season
 Jayden Laverde   Syndesmosis  1-2 weeks
 David Zaharakis  Quad  Season
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

With no fresh injuries from the win over Hawthorn and Dyson Heppell back from a lengthy lay-off to join the resurgent Joe Daniher, things are looking up for the Bombers. Laverde is coming along better than expected, but Francis will be given another week. Fantasia is unlikely to see action during the home and away season. - Callum Twomey 


 Travis Colyer  Hamstring  Test
 Joel Hamling  Ankle  Season
 Griffin Logue  Toe  2 weeks
 Lloyd Meek  Calf  1 week
 Alex Pearce  Ankle  Season
 Luke Ryan  Hip  Test
 Sam Sturt  Ankle  Season
 Darcy Tucker  Hamstring  Season
 Hayden Young  Ankle  Season
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

All eyes are on Ryan ahead of Wednesday's clash with Richmond. The All-Australian contender remains well in the frame to play despite suffering a bruised hip against GWS. Colyer should also be available for selection after overcoming his hamstring injury. Logue is in a race against time to play before the season ends. - Chris Correia

Geelong Cats

 Gary Ablett  Quarantine  Round 18
 Nathan Kreuger  Knee  Season
 Joel Selwood  Knee  Test
 Sam Simpson  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Rhys Stanley  Groin  Test
 Zach Tuohy  Chest  Test
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Stanley pulled up sore following the Cats' win over the Bulldogs and is in doubt despite the nine-day break. Darcy Fort will be available to return from a foot injury, having missed Saturday's scratch match through illness. Tuohy will need to be monitored after copping a heavy knock to his chest. Selwood is no certainty to play despite training strongly on Tuesday, with the Cats taking a more conservative approach with the skipper. Kreuger has returned home for a further clean-up on his knee that will rule him out for the remainder of the season. Ablett touches down in Queensland on Tuesday to begin his 14-day quarantine that will allow him to re-join teammates on September 15. - Mitch Cleary

Gold Coast Suns

 Jarrod Harbrow  Shoulder  Test
 Jez McLennan  Hamstring  1 week
 Mitch Riordan  Knee  Season
 Matt Rowell  Shoulder  Indefinite
 Josh Schoenfeld  Foot  Test
 Rory Thompson  Knee  TBC
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Harbrow missed the win over the Kangaroos, but with the longer break ahead of next week's QClash against Brisbane, is expected to be available. Thompson will see his surgeon this week to determine the way forward for the partial tear of his ACL. - Michael Whiting

GWS Giants

 Phil Davis  Knee  TBC
 Tom Hutchesson  Hamstring  1 week
 Josh Kelly  Concussion  TBC
 Tommy Sheridan  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Sam Taylor  Back  TBC
 Callan Ward  Finger  3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Kelly will miss this week’s clash with Carlton due to the Giants' abbreviated break between games falling short of the League’s required six-day recovery time from concussion. Fellow midfielder Ward had surgery on his finger and is back running but will miss at least the next two games. Sheridan injured his hamstring in last Friday's scratch match and will unlikely be available before finals - Callum Twomey 


 Will Golds  Knee  Season
 Ricky Henderson  Knee  Season
 Harry Jones  Knee  3-4 weeks
 Jaeger O'Meara  Hand  Test
 Jon Patton  Plantaris tendon  1-2 weeks
 James Sicily  Knee  Season
 Isaac Smith  Shoulder  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Patton avoided any Achilles damage and instead sustained a tear to the adjacent plantaris tendon. He could play again this season. O'Meara has resumed handling balls, but isn't ready to play yet, but Smith will miss a fourth straight game and must be in some doubt for the remainder of 2020. The Hawks named James Frawley (dislocated thumb) and Jarman Impey (foot) to face Adelaide after they both sat out the Bombers loss. Ben Stratton and Shaun Burgoyne are also set to return after being managed.Marc McGowan


 Michael Hibberd  Ankle  Test
 Marty Hore  Quad/Toe  Indefinite
 Luke Jackson  Hamstring  3 weeks
 James Jordon  Finger  3-5 weeks
 Kade Kolodjashnij  Concussion  Indefinite
 Harry Petty  Groin  Indefinite
 Aaron Nietschke  Knee  Season
 Tom Sparrow  Collarbone  3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Scans were negative on Hibberd's rolled ankle, but he's still dealing with some swelling and will need to pass a fitness test to play on Thursday against Sydney. Sparrow and Jackson remain on target to be available against Essendon in round 18, while Jordon could also be ready by then. Alex Neal-Bullen has served his four-match ban for a dangerous tackle on Crow Will Hamill.Marc McGowan

North Melbourne

 Aiden Bonar  AC joint  Test
 Ben Brown  Knee  TBC
 Charlie Comben  Back  Season
 Ben Cunnington  Back  Season
 Taylor Garner  Hamstring  Test
 Kyron Hayden  Knee  Season
 Ben Jacobs  Head/neck  Season

 Kayne Turner  Toe/Sesamoid  Season
 Dom Tyson  Calf  Season
 Will Walker  Hamstring  Season
 Tristan Xerri  Shoulder  1 week
 Jack Ziebell  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Brown, who completed a running session on Saturday, and Taylor are now without return dates and might not be seen again this year. Ziebell could return against Port Adelaide after playing just one game since round four due to separate hamstring setbacks. Bonar, Mahony and Garner could also be available to play at some level, but Xerri will miss another game. The Roos last week ruled out Comben, Hayden, Jacobs, Tyson and Walker for the rest of the season.Marc McGowan

Port Adelaide

 Mitch Georgiades  Hamstring  Test
 Peter Ladhams  Suspension  1 match
 Dylan Williams  Groin  1 week
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Port Adelaide will hope to have Georgiades back from a hamstring injury this week, but Ladhams remains sidelined for at least another match due to suspension for a COVID-19 protocol breach.Riley Beveridge


 David Astbury  Knee  1-3 weeks
 Josh Caddy  Hamstring   1 week
 Callum Coleman-Jones  Foot  Test
 Riley Collier-Dawkins  Shoulder  Test
 Noah Cumberland  ACL  Season

 Ryan Garthwaite  Groin  1-2 weeks
 Dylan Grimes  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Kane Lambert  Hip  1 week
 Bigoa Nyuon  Shoulder  Season
 Dion Prestia  Ankle  2-4 weeks
 Sydney Stack  Hip  Test
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Grimes will miss at least one match with the hamstring injury suffered against West Coast last week. In good news it's not a serious strain, so the All-Australian defender could be in the mix for next week's blockbuster against Geelong. Lambert should also be fine for the Cats clash with the club taking a cautious approach with his minor hip injury. Prestia was put on an intravenous drip to clear up some infection in his ankle and he now looks unlikely to feature before finals, while Caddy has had a setback in regaining his spot after suffering hamstring tightness. Astbury is tracking along better and will be eyeing round 18 against Adelaide for his return. Stack will be tested this week after a minor hip injury, while Coleman-Jones and Garthwaite will be available for match play next week. Edwards is likely to play in round 18 after serving his two weeks of quarantine. - Ben Sutton

St Kilda

 Nathan Brown  Personal leave  Indefinite
 Luke Dunstan  Pectoral muscle  Test
 Jade Gresham  Back  6-8 weeks
 Dan Hannebery  Hamstring  2-4 weeks
 Jack Mayo  Knee   Season
 Jimmy Webster  Hamstring  Test
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Hannebery and Gresham start their 14-day quarantine periods on Tuesday. It's hoped Hannebery could return for finals should the Saints hold on and qualify, but Gresham is seen as a long shot. Webster and Dunstan are both likely to be available for scratch match minutes this week. - Mitch Cleary

Sydney Swans

 Lance Franklin  Hamstring  Season
 Isaac Heeney  Ankle  Season
 George Hewett  Back  Season
 Jack Maibaum  Personal  Season
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Dane Rampe  Hand  Season 
 Harry Reynolds  Shoulder  Season
 Ben Ronke  Back  Season
 Ryley Stoddart  Back  Season
 Elijah Taylor  Suspension  Season
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Rampe underwent surgery last week to remove the plate in his hand that was inserted after his initial break in late July. He will remain in Sydney for the rest of the season. Kaiden Brand (groin) has now played two scrimmage games and was able to get through a full match in the latest of them. Brand is available for senior selection. Michael Knoll (knee) also negotiated 60 minutes of reserves game time and will look to gain further match practice in the coming weeks. - Marc McGowan

West Coast Eagles

 Jamaine Jones  Hamstring  Season
 Josh Kennedy  Concussion  1 week
 Mitch O'Neill  Back  4-6 weeks
 Jack Petruccelle  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Willie Rioli  ASADA ban  Indefinite
 Nathan Vardy  Thigh  4-5 weeks
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
 Jake Waterman  Hand  1 week
 Francis Watson  Knee  Season
 Elliot Yeo  Groin  3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Kennedy passed his required concussion tests, but given new AFL concussion protocols, hasn't been cleared to play off the five-day break. Yeo is now in a race against time to play in the home and away season after joining the Eagles in the hub on Monday. Waterman is edging closer to a return, while Petruccelle is hopeful of featuring later in the season. - Mitch Cleary

Western Bulldogs

 Lin Jong  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Callum Porter  Groin  1 week
 Laitham Vandermeer  Hamstring  6 weeks
 Rhylee West  Groin  2-3 weeks
 Easton Wood  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, September 1

Early prognosis

Wood and Vandermeer both succumbed to hamstring injuries in the round 14 clash against Geelong. Wood should be available for the Dogs last one or two games in the home and away season, but Vandermeer will be hoping the side makes finals if he is to be a chance to return. Zaine Cordy was dominant in a scratch match against the Cats, while Taylor Duryea got through his first game of 2020 with no issues. - Jourdan Canil

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