Injury

Estimated Return

Kyle Cheney Hamstring 2-4 weeks
Brad Crouch Hamstring 1 weeks
Ben Davis Foot Indefinite
Tom Doedee Knee 2 weeks
Cam Ellis-Yolmen * Knee Season
Alex Keath Hamstring 2-4 weeks
Mitch McGovern Ankle Test
Paul Seedsman Groin TBC
Taylor Walker Hamstring Test
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Skipper Taylor Walker should be right to face the Hawks after going close last week while fellow forward Mitch McGovern will have his ankle injury assessed. Midfielder Brad Crouch will play in round one of the SANFL on April 8. He will need a couple weeks to build match fitness given his injury history and the fact he’s been sidelined since mid-January. Defender Kyle Cheney will miss up to a month with a hamstring injury sustained at training last week. He had a limited pre-season with a groin issue. Winger Paul Seedsman is still in the rehab group and will need time in the state league before he is considered for the senior side. Draftee Ben Davis has had surgery on his foot. He arrived at the club with a stress fracture and it didn’t respond to treatment. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Allen Christensen Collarbone 6 weeks
Cian Hanley Family matter Indefinite
Hugh McCluggage Ankle 1-2 weeks
Marco Paparone Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Josh Schache Knee Test
Sam Skinner Knee 8 weeks
Alex Witherden Leg 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

There are a few niggles, but aside from Christensen, the list is in good shape. Berry and Freeman are chances to play in a NEAFL practice match on March 25, while Schache and McCluggage resume training next week and should only be a week or two from entering selection calculations. – Michael Whiting

Injury

Estimated Return

Ciaran Byrne Knee TBC
Jordan Gallucci Shoulder 2 weeks
Daniel Gorringe Achilles TBC
Jed Lamb Knee TBC
Kym Lebois Ankle 2 weeks
Andrew Phillips Foot Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

The Blues have declared the versatile Jacob Weitering, who copped an accidental knock to the hip from Richmond defender Alex Rance early in last Thursday night’s season opener, will be fit to take on the Demons on Sunday. Key midfielder Patrick Cripps, who appeared to hurt his arm late against the Tigers but played on, also should be right. Dylan Buckley has recovered from a hip injury and played in a VFL practice match last Thursday. Phillips is in training but at least a fortnight off playing and Byrne hopes to return late in the season. – Howard Kotton

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Jordan De Goey Broken knuckle/suspension 5-6 weeks
Jamie Elliott Ankle TBC
Levi Greenwood Hip 3-4 weeks
Tom Langdon Knee and ankle 2-3 weeks
Ben Sinclair * Hamstring 7-9 weeks
Travis Varcoe Suspension Available round three
Daniel Wells Calf 1-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Elliott has been ruled out of round two and will need at least one VFL game first before the Pies consider selecting him. De Goey will be sidelined for an extended period, set to miss another two or three games with a broken knuckle in his right hand followed by a club-imposed three-match suspension for initially lying about how he sustained the injury. The date for ex-Roo Wells’ long-awaited debut for the Pies continues to drift. Wills has recovered from a quad problem and could be available to play in the VFL side in the next week or two. – Ben Collins

Injury

Estimated Return

Josh Green Hamstring 2-3 weeks
Jayden Laverde Ankle 12 weeks
Matthew Leuenberger Hamstring 1-2 weeks
David Myers * Finger 4-6 weeks
Jordan Ridley * Back 12 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

The Bombers are in a healthy position heading into round two apart from losing Green to a hamstring injury. After two VFL practice games, Tom Bellchambers is close to being ready for senior selection after a pre-season impacted by knee surgery. David Myers is edging closer to having the splint removed from his finger and returning to ball use at training. – Callum Twomey

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Michael Apeness Knee 4-6 weeks
Hayden Ballantyne Hamstring 7-9 weeks
Harley Bennell Calf TBA
Zac Clarke Knee TBA
Josh Deluca Groin 3-5 weeks
Taylin Duman Ankle 2 weeks
Ryan Nyhuis Shin 3-4 weeks
Alex Pearce Leg TBA
Luke Ryan Ankle Test
Matthew Uebergang Hamstring TBA
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Ross Lyon has described Harley Bennell’s long-awaited return to football as a “moving feast”, but the injury-plagued star reportedly took part in match simulation last week at training in a significant step forward. Hayden Ballantyne is expected to start running soon after recovering well from hamstring surgery a fortnight ago, and big man Michael Apeness is building his workload on the anti-gravity treadmill. Rookie Taylin Duman hurt his ankle at training. – Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Ryan Abbott Back 2-4 weeks
Nakia Cockatoo Hand 4 weeks
Corey Gregson Foot 8-10 weeks
Cameron Guthrie Calf Test
Timm House Shoulder Test
Jake Kolodjashnij Groin Test
Scott Selwood Toe Test
Zac Smith Soreness Test
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Smith was a surprise withdrawal after the club declared him fit to play last week despite copping a knock before the final JLT Community Series game. Cam Guthrie took a cautious approach because of lingering soreness in his calf. Kolodjashnij and Selwood are likely to build up through the VFL. – Peter Ryan

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Sam Day Hip Season
Pearce Hanley Family matter Indefinite
Michael Rischitelli Knee Indefinite
David Swallow Ankle Test
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

This is the shortest list the Suns have seen in many years. Jarrod Harbrow (ankle), Trent McKenzie (calf) and Brandon Matera (eye) are expecting to play a NEAFL practice match on Saturday (March 18). Harbrow will need more match conditioning before being available for senior selection. – Michael Whiting

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Stephen Coniglio Ankle 6 weeks
Aidan Corr Hand Test
Matt de Boer Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Brett Deledio Calf TBC
Tom Downie * Illness Indefinite
Tendai Mzungu Hamstring 10-12 weeks
Jonathon Patton Hip Test
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Coniglio is a massive worry with him being listed as six weeks away, the same as his initial diagnosis a fortnight ago, while Brett Deledio’s return still has no set date. Corr will train on Wednesday and Friday in a bid to prove his fitness, while Patton is likely to be given until Friday to show he’s OK to face Gold Coast. Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Jonathon Ceglar Knee 12 weeks
Jonathan O’Rourke Hamstring 3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Ceglar is back running and O’Rourke is well into his rehab. Rioli was hampered for much of the season opener against the Bombers but given he played the game, out he appears a certain starter this week against Adelaide in what shapes as a really difficult encounter. Otherwise the Hawks are in fine fettle. – Ashley Browne

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Sam Frost Toe Test
Colin Garland Knee Season
Max Gawn Back Test
Michael Hibberd Achilles 2-3 weeks
Jesse Hogan Ankle Test
Liam Hulett Hip 2-3 weeks
Jay Kennedy-Harris Arm 2 weeks
Mitch King * Knee 4 weeks
Joel Smith Shoulder 16 weeks
Aaron vandenBerg Heel 4-6 weeks
Josh Wagner Fibula Test
Mitch White Ankle 2-3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

The Demons insist star pair Jesse Hogan and Max Gawn will be fit to face the Blues on Sunday. Hogan was on crutches on Monday after rolling his ankle against St Kilda. The spearhead did not train with teammates on Tuesday, instead completing an ‘off legs’ session in the gym. Gawn was on light duties and walked laps on Tuesday but, with the extra day to recover, should be ready to roll against Carlton. Michael Hibberd worked hard in rehab on Tuesday and the Demons are hopeful they will have him available to play soon. The Demons have upgraded Mitch King back to the senior list in place of Joel Smith who is set to miss four months after shoulder surgery on Tuesday. – Ben Guthrie

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Paul Ahern* Knee Season
Ben Jacobs Foot 2-4 weeks
Oscar Junker Broken tibia 10-12 weeks
Jarrad Waite Shoulder  4-6 weeks
Mason Wood Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Waite was the only addition to North’s list after round one. However, defender Sam Wright missed Werribee’s VFL practice match last Saturday after being left out of North’s round one team largely because of his interrupted pre-season following ankle surgery. Wright will likely need more game time in the VFL before being considered for senior selection. – Nick Bowen

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Dougal Howard Knee 2-4 weeks
Jasper Pittard Hamstring 1-2 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

The Power’s injury room is extremely sparse. Pittard could be back as early as round three, while Howard is progressing better than expected in his recovery from a torn ACL. – Lee Gaskin

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Jack Graham * Ankle Indefinite
Shaun Hampson * Back Indefinite
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Steve Morris is set to play his first VFL game this week after recovering from a knee reconstruction, so he comes off the injury list. Graham is on the long-term list after falling on his ankle during a training drill last Tuesday. He has a small fracture in his tibia bone and ligament damage. Hampson has undergone multiple surgeries on his back injury but is able to train lightly after the Tigers identified the specific area of the ruckman’s back that is troubling him. – Nathan Schmook

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

David Armitage Groin 1-2 weeks
Nick Coughlan Foot 4 weeks
Hugh Goddard Achilles 1 week
Ben Long Suspension Available round three
Paddy McCartin Hamstring Test
Nick Riewoldt Knee 2-4 weeks
koby Stevens Ill 1 week
Updated: Wednesday, March 29

Early prognosis

The Saints will see how Riewoldt responds to his right knee hyperextension before determining when he returns. McCartin and Montagna should both be right to make the trip to Perth after playing three quarters in the VFL last Sunday. – Dinny Navaratnam

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Darcy Cameron Finger Test
Isaac Heeney Glandular fever 2 weeks
Alex Johnson * Knee Indefinite
Jarrad McVeigh Calf 3 weeks
Tom Papley * Knee/shin 2-3 weeks
Dane Rampe Arm 5 weeks
Dan Robinson Collarbone 5-8 weeks
Gary Rohan * Back/hamstring 3 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Heeney is listed as two weeks, which is a promising sign, while McVeigh is back running and could be fit to play in the next three weeks. Robinson has had surgery on his collarbone and will be assessed further next week. Papley and Rohan could be back on the senior list in the near future but will likely need time in the NEAFL after missing most of the pre-season, while Cameron should play in the NEAFL this week after missing round one with an infected finger. Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Matthew Allen Hamstring 2 weeks
Tom Cole Quad 1 weeks
Scott Lycett * Shoulder 10-12 weeks
Nic Naitanui * Knee Late 2017 season
Drew Petrie Hand 10 weeks
Willie Rioli Hamstring 5 weeks
Simon Tunbridge Knee Mid-late 2017 season
Jake Waterman Foot 8 weeks
Updated: Tuesday, March 28

Early prognosis

Drew Petrie has multiple fractures in his hand but might be back earlier than 10 weeks after undergoing surgery on Tuesday. Scott Lycett was listed as 8-10 weeks away seven days ago but his recovery timeframe is back out to a more conservative 10-12 weeks post-surgery. – Travis King

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

Tim English Shin soreness Test
Tory Dickson Abdominal 3-4 weeks
Dale Morris Leg 6-8 weeks
Josh Prudden Knee TBC
Jack Redpath Knee TBC
Jordan Roughead Hamstring 3-4 weeks
Roarke Smith Knee Season
Mitch Wallis Broken leg 3-4 weeks
Updated: Wednesday, March 29

The loss of Dale Morris for the next two months is a massive blow, but the veteran has avoided surgery. Tory Dickson can’t take a trick, with the goal sneak succumbing to an abdominal strain just weeks after returning from off-season groin surgery. Tim English should be right for a VFL practice match this weekend after overcoming a shin complaint. – Ryan Davidson

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