PLAYER     
 Dylan Grimes  Hamstring  3-4 weeks
 Dustin Martin  Hamstring  2-4 weeks
 Samson Ryan  Concussion  Test
Updated: August 2, 2022

Early prognosis

Grimes has suffered a high hamstring strain, in the same area that caused him significant grief around 10 years ago. The Tigers have said he’s doubtful to play in the remainder of the home and away season, and there’ll be a further update to come in the next few days. Martin has been struggling to increase his speed, and the Tigers have earmarked round 23 as a “hopeful” return date. – Sarah Black

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jack Billings  Back  TBC
 Nick Coffield  ACL  Season
 Jade Gresham  Knee  Season
 Jack Hayes  Knee  Season
 Dougal Howard  Knee  Test
 Daniel McKenzie  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Paddy Ryder  Calf  3-4 weeks
Updated: August 2, 2022

Early prognosis

Howard could be available for Saturday night’s crucial game against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The key defender will need to prove his fitness later in the week. Billings is still dealing with a back injury and hasn’t been cleared to return to action just yet. Gresham was ruled out for the rest of the season late last week and will require a PCL reconstruction, sidelining him for the next five months. – Josh Gabelich

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Peter Ladhams  Thumb  Test
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Colin O’Riordan  Hip  TBC
 Marc Sheather  Ankle  TBC
Updated: August 2, 2022

Early prognosis

It’s all good news for the Swans with Ladhams expected to be available this weekend – most likely at VFL level with Tom Hickey and Sam Reid going well in the seniors. – Michael Whiting

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Oscar Allen  Foot  Inactive
 Campbell Chesser  Ankle  Inactive
 Tom Cole  Ankle  Inactive
 Jai Culley  Suspended  2 weeks
 Luke Edwards  Groin  Inactive
 Tom Joyce  Ankle  Season
 Jeremy McGovern  Ribs  Season
 Dom Sheed  Shins  Season
 Elliot Yeo  Hamstring  TBC
Updated: August 2, 2022

Early prognosis

The Eagles are close to calling an end to Yeo‘s disjointed season, rather than risking a comeback in the final three rounds. Culley has accepted a two-match suspension but also suffered a hamstring injury in round 20 that will sideline him for the duration of that ban. Chesser remains focused on returning from an ankle injury to complete main training before the end of the season. – Nathan Schmook

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Hayden Crozier  Ankle  Test
 Charlie Parker  Hamstring  1-3 weeks
 Anthony Scott  Concussion  Test
 Adam Treloar  Calf  Test

Updated: August 2, 2022

Early prognosis

Treloar will need to get through training on Thursday before a call is made on his availability with his calf injury after missing last week against Geelong. Scott and Crozier are tests this week with their respective concerns. – Callum Twomey
