 Lachie Plowman  Illness  Test

Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

The Blues should regain Plowman, but there are still doubts over Hewett‘s fitness for this week’s clash with the Giants. Martin will miss a couple of weeks after suffering another frustrating calf injury. Promising defender Caleb Marchbank marked his return from 12 months on the sidelines with a knee injury with 20 disposals and five marks in the VFL over the weekend. – Riley Beveridge

Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

Young gun Isaac Quaynor has been cleared of further damage to his finger after dislocating it against Richmond on Saturday. Elliott is creeping closer to a return from shoulder surgery, while key defender Roughead is still taking time to recover from finger surgery, remaining at least a fortnight away from a return. Dean ran for the first time in nine weeks last week as he continues his recovery from a stress fracture in his foot. Wilson underwent back surgery last week and might not play again this season. – Josh Gabelich

 Joel Western  Hamstring  TBA
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

Switkowski has entered the AFL’s concussion protocols after a head knock in the final quarter against North Melbourne. There have been no lingering concerns for the important small forward. Johnson has been cleared to play but will wait one more week given the WAFL bye. Defenders Alex Pearce and Luke Ryan have been cleared of any injury after receiving treatment against North. – Nathan Schmook

 Joel Selwood  Quad  Test
 Sam Simpson  Concussion  TBC
 Rhys Stanley  Ankle  Test
 James Willis  Knee  TBC
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

Ratugolea is set to miss the next four to six weeks after undergoing ankle surgery on Monday following an incident on the training track late last week. Ruckman Stanley is a chance to return from an ankle injury against St Kilda on the weekend, after missing the trip to Canberra. Selwood also missed the game against Greater Western Sydney due to a quad cork, but is in contention to face the Saints. Higgins missed the win over the Giants due to general soreness and will need to prove his fitness ahead of the weekend. Jed Bews has been ruled out after suffering a concussion against GWS. Henry continues to miss due to a foot injury. – Josh Gabelich

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Noah Anderson  Illness  Test
 Josh Corbett  Hip  Test
 Ben King  Knee  Season
 Jack Lukosius  Knee  Test
 Bodhi Uwland  Back  Indefinite
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

Anderson trained on Tuesday and will resume his place in the team after missing the win over Sydney. Lukosius did not train on Tuesday and would be unlikely to play, although he will be tested later in the week. – Michael Whiting

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Jack Buckley  Knee  8-10 weeks
 Brent Daniels  Foot  1 week
 Phil Davis  Hamstring  3-5 weeks
 Jacob Hopper  Knee  6 weeks
 Daniel Lloyd  Shoulder  1-2 weeks
Updated: May 10, 2022

 Tyler Brockman  Shoulder  TBC
 Emerson Jeka  Hamstring  3 weeks
 Changkuoth Jiath   Hamstring  1 week
 Mitch Lewis  Hamstring/illness   Test
 Ben McEvoy  Neck  9 weeks
 Tom Phillips  Ankle  7 weeks
 Ned Reeves  Shoulder  TBC
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

Chad Wingard and Lewis are both expected to be available for Saturday’s game against Richmond at the MCG. Wingard missed what was supposed to be his 200th game on Saturday night due to illness, while Lewis has missed three games due to a hamstring injury. Conor Nash also missed the loss against Essendon but is expected to be available after the club managed his workload. The Hawks are expected to take a conversative approach with Jiath this weekend, with the dashing defender to miss a fourth game. Jeka suffered a hamstring strain after booting five first half goals for Box Hill on the weekend, while Brockman dislocated his shoulder in the opening quarter. Josh Gabelich

 Christian Salem  Knee  1-2 weeks
 Joel Smith  Ankle  8-9 weeks
 Taj Woewodin  Concussion  Test
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

The Demons are, for the most part, all good on the injury front after Max Gawn (knee) and Jake Lever (quad) were made available to play. Uncapped youngster Daniel Turner (foot) made his return in the VFL last weekend. Salem is closing on a return. – Riley Beveridge

 Jared Polec  Foot  2-3 weeks
 Phoenix Spicer  Hamstring  2-3 weeks
 Tristan Xerri  Foot  2 weeks
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

The Kangaroos will likely lose McKay, but will regain key forward Nick Larkey from suspension. Hall is closing on a return, while Xerri should hopefully be back in the next fortnight. – Riley Beveridge

 Riley Bonner  Ankle  3-4 weeks
 Orazio Fantasia  Knee  Assess
 Scott Lycett  Shoulder  10-11 weeks
 Trent McKenzie  Knee  4-6 weeks
 Jake Pasini  Knee  Season
 Josh Sinn  Groin  TBC
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

Pasini ruptured his left anterior cruciate ligament when he landed awkwardly at training on Tuesday morning, with the defender expected to undergo surgery later this week. Bonner sprained his right ankle in the third quarter of the round eight clash against the Western Bulldogs, with scans confirming ligament damage. Fantasia has been cleared to play his first game of the season if he can get through a full week of training. Meanwhile, Kane Farrell will emerge from health and safety protocols later this week, while Bergman has recovered from a virus. – Nathan Schmook

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Riley Collier-Dawkins  Illness  Test
 Rhyan Mansell  Suspension  Round 10
 Matt Parker  Ankle  Test
 Dion Prestia  Illness   Test
 Hugo Ralphsmith  Ribs  Test
 Samson Ryan  Achilles  Test
 Nick Vlastuin  Illness  Test
Updated: May 9, 2022

Early prognosis

Ill trio Collier-Dawkins, Prestia and Vlastuin look likely to be available for selection for this weekend’s clash with Hawthorn, while Ralphsmith is also closing in on a return after three weeks on the sidelines. Ryan and Parker are listed as “questionable” by the Tigers, the latter kicking two in the VFL before tweaking his ankle. – Sarah Black

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Dan Butler  Achilles  Test
 Nick Coffield  ACL  Season
 Dan Hannebery  Calf  6 weeks
 Jack Hayes  Knee  Season
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

Butler remains a chance to face Geelong this weekend, despite being substituted out of Sunday’s game due to Achilles soreness. The forward has been managing the issue all season and will need to pass a fitness test later this week. Coffield is scheduled to resume running this week as he takes the next step in his recovery from a knee reconstruction. Hannebery is currently in Munich undergoing specialist treatment on his troublesome calf. – Josh Gabelich

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Harry Cunningham  Abdominal  Test
 Sam Naismith  Knee  Season
 Angus Sheldrick  Knee  5 weeks
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

After getting a heap of players back last week, including concussed pair Paddy McCartin and Logan McDonald, along with Tom Hickey, Robbie Fox and Lachlan McAndrew, it’s a quieter week for the Swans. The club is still yet to diagnose the hip/abdomen problem suffered by Cunningham against Brisbane in round seven. Michael Whiting

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Oscar Allen  Foot  TBC
 Campbell Chesser  Ankle  Inactive
 Tom Cole  Ankle  Inactive
 Tom Joyce  Ankle  TBC
 Zac Langdon  Ankle  5-6 weeks

 Dom Sheed  Ankle  3-4 weeks
 Luke Shuey  Hamstring  1-2 weeks
 Connor West  Quad  Test
 Bailey Williams  Hamstring  Test
 Elliot Yeo  H&S protocols  TBC
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

The Eagles are being cautious with Shuey, who has trained this week but won’t return from a hamstring complaint for at least one more week. Yeo also trained on Monday after recovering from concussion before entering the health and safety protocols. West trained lightly as he nursed a quad injury and he faces a fitness test this week. Williams looks likely to overcome a hamstring complaint in time to face the Demons. – Nathan Schmook

PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN
 Marcus Bontempelli  Managed  Test
 Josh Bruce  Knee  4-5 weeks
 Sam Darcy  Foot  Test

 Tim O’Brien  Calf  1-2 weeks
 Laitham Vandermeer  Hamstring  7-8 weeks
 Mitch Wallis  Foot  2-3 weeks
Updated: May 10, 2022

Early prognosis

The Dogs have one of the longest injury lists in the AFL as they battle a string of concerns. Weightman, Vandermeer and O’Brien were all casualties of last week’s loss to Port Adelaide, with Vandermeer to miss up to two months with his hamstring tear. Bontempelli, Keath and English are all listed as tests for this week, while Darcy may play his first VFL game after overcoming his foot injury. – Cal Twomey
