Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Tom Joyce  Shin  Test
 Mitch Robinson  Hamstring  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, September 10

Early prognosis

Robinson has already been ruled out for Saturday’s semi-final against the Giants. However, the club has left the door open for a return in the preliminary final should the Lions advance. – Michael Whiting 

COLLINGWOOD

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Dayne Beams  Shoulder/Hip  Season
 Mason Cox  Eye  Season
 Jordan De Goey  Hamstring  TBC
 Lynden Dunn  Knee  Season
 Levi Greenwood  Knee  Season
 Will Kelly  Hamstring  Season
 Tom Langdon  Knee  Season
 Nathan Murphy  Neck  TBC
 Sam Murray  ASADA suspension  Season
 Isaac Quaynor  Foot  TBC
 Ben Reid  Hamstring  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, September 10

Early prognosis

De Goey suffered another hamstring injury in the qualifying final win over Geelong and has travelled to Germany to be assessed by a world-renowned hamstring expert, with his best hope of a return being if the Pies make the Grand Final. Greenwood will be sidelined long-term after rupturing an anterior cruciate ligament against the Cats. The unlucky Murphy is recovering from another injury – nerve damage to his neck. It’s also unlikely we’ll see Quaynor again this season, while Reid is back in full training but faces an uphill battle to regain his place after another soft-tissue injury. The campaign is already over for CoxLangdonBeams and Dunn– Ben Collins

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Jordan Clark  Elbow  1-2 weeks
 Jordan Cunico  Ankle  Season
 Mitch Duncan  Knee  1-3 weeks
 Lachie Fogarty  Ankle  1-2 weeks
 Cam Guthrie  Calf  Test
 Gary Rohan  Knee  Test
 Updated: Tuesday, September 10

Early prognosis

Duncan was spotted in a brace on Tuesday for his medial ligament injury and remains a long shot to play again in 2019. Rohan is more unlikely than likely to tackle the Eagles after re-injuring his knee late in the loss to the Pies. The forward, who missed rounds 21 and 22 with the same injury, was restricted to straight-line running with a heavily taped knee on Tuesday. Guthrie will need to prove he’s fully over a calf on Thursday after returning to the main group on Tuesday after missing against the Pies. Clark increased his training loads on Tuesday but has again been ruled out, while Fogarty is at least another week away with his ankle. – Mitch Cleary

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Stephen Coniglio  Knee  1 week
 Brett Deledio  Calf  TBC
 Matt Flynn  Knee  Season
 Jonathon Patton  Knee  Season
 Callan Ward  Knee  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, September 10

Early prognosis

Deledio won’t play again this year unless the Giants make the Grand Final, and he can somehow rehab his troublesome calf after scans revealed damage to the tendon. Coniglio has been ruled out for this week but is running strongly and increasing his agility work, so the vice-captain could be fit for a preliminary final if GWS can topple Brisbane on Saturday night. – Adam Curley

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Jack Higgins  Brain bleed  Season
 Alex Rance  Knee  Season
 Sydney Stack  Ankle  TBC
 Updated: Tuesday, September 10

Early prognosis

Stack has started running and is progressing well from surgery on a syndesmosis injury, but the Tigers are still reticent to put a timeframe on his return. Daniel Rioli has pulled up well from a rolled ankle suffered in the qualifying final win, which he played out.Sarah Black

WEST COAST

Player

Injury

Estimated Return

 Brayden Ainsworth  Hamstring  Season
 Matthew Allen  Concussion  1-2 weeks
 Jarrod Brander  Hamstring  Season
 Daniel Venables  Concussion  Season
 Updated: Tuesday, September 10

Early prognosis

Premiership skipper Shannon Hurn (hamstring), tagger Mark Hutchings (hamstring) and star ruckman Nic Naitanui (ankle) all got through the elimination final after injury concerns, while young tall forward Oscar Allen is available after some knee soreness. Half-back Jackson Nelson is also fine after a heavy head knock against the Bombers, leaving the Eagles in an enviable position with an almost fully fit squad to pick from for the semi-final clash with Geelong. – Travis King
