PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Matt Crouch  Groin  8-10 weeks
 Lochlan Gollant  Finger  3-4 weeks
 Mitch Hinge  Shoulder  Season
 Tom Lynch  Toe  7-8 weeks
 Wayne Milera  Knee  Season
 Lachlan Murphy  Ankle  7-8 weeks
 Daniel Talia  Foot  3-4 weeks
 Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

The big news was surgery for Crouch last Friday on his groin injury. The prolific midfielder has not played this season and took the step of surgery to stabilise a tendon to alleviate persistent pain in the area. Talia's recovery has been set back by a week after suffering illness that ensured he was unable to train. - Michael Whiting

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Noah Answerth  Groin  1 week
 Jarrod Berry  Groin  TBC
 Darcy Gardiner  Shoulder  12-14 weeks
 Ryan Lester  Hamstring  Test
 Lachie Neale  Ankle  2-3 weeks
 Harry Sharp  Ankle  12 weeks
 Ely Smith  Ankle  5-7 weeks
 Jack Payne  Foot  1-2 weeks
 Cam Rayner  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

A few players getting close to a return with Lester striding out strongly at the weekend and on Tuesday. He might fall just short of playing GWS on Saturday, but he's getting close. Most interest surrounds Brownlow medalist Neale who took part in some (light) drills, jogging at a medium intensity and improving by the day. Answerth, Payne and Berry all ran on Tuesday, with the latter two reaching higher speeds, which was encouraging for Berry as his injury has never had a timeframe on it. Rayner also jogged for the first time since his ACL surgery. - Michael Whiting

 Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

The Blues are hopeful that Martin (knee) will return this weekend, but Fisher (ankle) is still one week away. Brodie Kemp (ankle) made a successful return through the VFL last weekend, but isn't ready for senior action yet. Philp (groin) will miss the rest of the season. - Riley Beveridge

 Beau McCreery  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Reef McInnes  Ankle  8-10 weeks
 Josh Thomas  Ankle  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

McCreery pulled up sore post-match and scans revealed he had strained his calf. Thomas and Brown will need to pass main training this week in order to prove their fitness, while Elliott will re-join the main group in the hope of facing Adelaide in round 12. Greenwood remains sidelined from main training with concussion symptoms. Cox will meet with a specialist this week to determine when he can enter contact training. - Mitch Cleary

 Devon Smith  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Jake Stringer  Hamstring  Test
 Irving Mosquito  Knee  Indefinite 
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

Stringer and Draper both face tests to play against the Eagles this week but the Bombers are hopeful they will be available after making strong progress with their respective recoveries. Youngster Reid is expected to play in the VFL after overcoming glandular fever. Shiel is still some time off but is making strong progress from his knee surgery while the club remains unsure if and when Hurley will be available to play after his nasty pre-season hip infection. - Callum Twomey

 Alex Pearce  Ankle  Test
 Sam Sturt  Knee  Season
 Matt Taberner  Ankle  Test
 Hayden Young  Hamstring  3-5 weeks
Updated: Monday, May 24

Early prognosis

Taberner suffered minor ligament damage to his ankle and pulled up sore, so will be closely monitored this week. Pearce had awareness in the site of his last ankle injury and was withdrawn from his WAFL game before half time as a precaution. Brayshaw is expected to return, while Hamling now has an uncertain return-to-play date after being three weeks away going into round 10. - Nathan Schmook

 Mark O'Connor  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Sam Simpson  Hamstring  1-2 weeks

 Cameron Taheny  Adductor  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

Duncan will be ruled out for at least one week under the AFL's concussion protocols, while Guthrie will need to prove his fitness later in the week after a shoulder complaint sustained against the Suns. Dangerfield is targeting a return after the Cats' round 12 bye, while O'Connor and Miers are progressing from their respective injuries. - Mitch Cleary

 Luke Towey  Foot  Test
 Rory Thompson  Knee  Season
 Jarrod Witts  Knee  Season
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

After copping a corked quad in round nine against Brisbane, Farrar just needs to get through training this week to be available against Hawthorn. Bowes has progressed well but is still a few weeks away, while Rowell is back doing bits and pieces with the main group. - Michael Whiting

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Tanner Bruhn  Groin  Test
 Jack Buckley  Ankle  Test

 Braydon Preuss  Shoulder  Test
 Jake Stein  Thumb  Test
 Sam Taylor  Ankle  8 weeks
 Jacob Wehr  Ankle  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

Key defender Taylor has been brilliant this season but needs ankle surgery after scans showed he suffered syndesmosis damage in the win over West Coast. Buckley rolled his ankle badly against the Eagles but didn’t require a scan so should be OK to take on Brisbane. Hogan’s bad luck continued when he strained a calf in training late last week. Bruhn kicked three goals in the VFL before coming off early in the second term with a sore groin. Kennedy, Preuss and Stein are hoping to return from long-term injuries this week through the VFL. - Martin Pegan

 James Sicily  Knee  Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

O’Meara will miss this weekend’s clash against Gold Coast in Darwin with concussion, while despite being a late withdrawal with neck soreness, Liam Shiels is not on the club’s injury list. Burgoyne is set to return, while top draftee Grainger-Barras is getting very close to a return from a hyperextended knee – Sarah Black

 Adam Tomlinson  Knee  Season
 Aaron vandenBerg  Quad  Test
 Jack Viney  Toe  2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

The Demons expect Salem (soreness) to return, but there has been a minor setback for Viney (toe). He'll miss at least another fortnight. The returns of Laurie (eye) and Joel Smith (knee) have also been delayed. Nathan Jones (hamstring) played in the VFL last weekend and will be available for selection, alongside vandenBerg (quad) this weekend. - Riley Beveridge

 Jaidyn Stephenson  Wrist  2-3 weeks
 Robbie Tarrant  Kidney  Test
 Dom Tyson  Calf  TBC
 Will Walker  Thumb  2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

The good news for the Kangaroos is that Tarrant (kidney) will play VFL this weekend, marking his return to the game. He's likely to play only a half at reserves level.  Hayden (hamstring) and Polec (hamstring) aren't likely to return until after the club's round 13 bye, while Anderson (ankle) will resume running next week but is still some time away. There is not yet a timeframe on returns for Spicer (hamstring) or Tyson (calf). But Patrick Walker (groin/hip) returned through the VFL last weekend. - Riley Beveridge

 Dylan Williams  Lower leg  Assess
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

Orazio Fantasia is available after missing round 10 with minor knee soreness that was impacting his hamstring. Duursma and Pasini are increasing their training loads. Butters underwent successful surgery last week to release pressure on the nerve around his left knee. - Nathan Schmook

 Patrick Naish  Hamstring  1-3 weeks
 Dion Prestia  Calf  Test
 Ivan Soldo  Knee  3 months
Updated: Wednesday, May 26

Early prognosis

More bad news on the injury front with Lynch to undergo knee surgery later this week. In better news, the Tigers could be boosted by a host of midfielders, with Prestia, Bolton and Cotchin all listed as "probable" by the club. However, Edwards is still at least another week away, while Naish has joined the injury list with a minor hamstring concern. – Sarah Black

 Rowan Marshall  Foot  2-4 weeks
 Daniel McKenzie  Calf  Test
 Ben Paton  Broken leg  Season
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

Carlisle has been sent for surgery that is likely to sideline him for the remainder of the season. Marshall is working towards a return as early as a fortnight away. Kent remains sidelined with concussion after a heavy hit in the VFL on May 2, while McKenzie is a test ahead of selection this week. - Mitch Cleary

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN

 Robbie Fox  Eye  TBC
 Errol Gulden  Foot  4-5 weeks
 Lewis Melican  Hamstring  Test
 Sam Reid   Calf  TBC
 Ben Ronke  Knee  Test
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

Fox copped an accidental poke in the eye against the Dockers that scratched his eyeball and caused some bleeding, and is now waiting on a specialist’s report to learn the extent of the injury. The Swans are hopeful he just needs a week of rest. Melican joined in all of training on Tuesday and is expected to be available if needed to replace Fox in defence. Ronke is set to play in the VFL as he continues his recovery from a long-term knee injury. - Martin Pegan

 Isiah Winder  Knee  5 weeks
 Alex Witherden  Groin  1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

McGovern will be sidelined until after the bye after a knee injury suffered against Adelaide in round nine. Witherden reported tightness ahead of round 10 and was a late withdrawal, with the Eagles still investigating the exact issue. Sheppard has a rolled ankle and will face a fitness test. Yeo is finally off the injury list after almost 10 months. - Nathan Schmook

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN

 Jamarra Ugle-Hagan  Concussion  Test
 Laitham Vandermeer  Knee  TBC
 Easton Wood   Hamstring   4-6 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, May 25

Early prognosis

There's a bit happening on the injury front at the Dogs, who are perched on top of the ladder. Treloar goes out after ankle surgery and could miss a couple of months, but Lipinski is a chance to come in after missing last week with a thigh injury. English is also expected to return after a month out with concussion, while Toby McLean will make his return to the VFL this week following a rapid return after his knee reconstruction. Vandermeer, however, has had more issues with his knee and now faces a more extensive stint on the sidelines as he undergoes surgery. - Callum Twomey
