With clubs finalising their injury lists by Tuesday evening, we'll bring you all the latest news surrounding your club's casualty list ahead of Round 8.

The Crows have confirmed a young forward will miss the remainder of the 2024 season, while two star Giants will need to pass fitness tests in time for Saturday's 'Battle of the Bridge'.

Port Adelaide have provided some positive news on their skipper, while the Roos could be without one of their captains on Saturday.

Here's the latest AFL injury news...

Power star cleared for Showdown

Port Adelaide captain Connor Rozee is expected to play in Thursday night's Showdown despite suffering a hamstring concern in Round 7.

Rozee did not see out last Friday's win over St Kilda due to the minor hamstring injury, with the scans showing minor damage.

Recent days have seen Rozee pain free and get through testing, with the club clearing their skipper for this week.

The club has confirmed Sam Powell-Pepper will miss the remainder of the season due to an ACL injury, while defender Aliir Aliir has entered concussion protocols.

Meanwhile, Power forward Ollie Lord could be cleared to make a return from a knee injury this week. Lord will be a test ahead of this week's SANFL-AFL doubl-header at Adelaide Oval.

Young utility Josh Sinn is also available for selection this week after passing fitness tests.

Dangerfield to miss at least a month

Geelong captain Patrick Dangerfield will miss at least a month after suffering a hamstring injury in Saturday's win over Carlton.

Dangerfield has damaged the same hamstring he hurt in Round 2 and will require up to six weeks on the sidelines.

“The injury Pat has sustained is similar to the one from earlier in the season where he missed 21 days. Given the injury is to the same leg, we will continue to take a conservative approach in his recovery and return to play,” Cats Assistant General Manager of Football Brett Johnson said in a club update.

“With a focus to set Pat up for the second part of the season, at this stage he will miss four-to-six weeks, however we will re-assess his progress and the timeframe that he returns to the line-up as he works through his training program.”

Defender Tom Stewart is in line to return from concussion protocols for Saturday night's game against Melbourne.

Blues trio close to returns for Collingwood clash

A trio of Carlton players face tests ahead of the Blues' blockbuster clash with Collingwood.

Adam Cerra (hamstring), Orazio Fantasia (illness) and David Cuningham (calf) are all in the mix after missing the Roud 7 loss to Geelong.

Defender Mitch McGovern remains another week away from a return from a hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined over the past two matches, while a groin injury has continued to hamper rookie Matt Carroll, who remains close to a month away from a return.

Lachie Fogarty (wrist), Adam Saad (hamstring), Caleb Marchbank (back), Jesse Motlop (hamstring) and Jack Martin (hamstring) remain some time away from returns.

Mixed news for Lions as utility suffers hamstring setback 

A minor hamstring strain will see Brisbane's Callum Ah Chee miss at least one game.

The Lions have revealed Ah Chee has suffered a slight hamstring strain and will miss Sunday's QClash with the Suns.

Brisbane will regain ruckman Oscar McInernery after he was cleared to exit concussion protocols after suffering a head knock in Round 6 against Geelong.

Senior pair Zac Bailey and Deven Robertson remain close to three weeks away from returns as they deal with ankle and shoulder concerns respectively.

Roos skipper no certainty for Saints game as King enters selection mix

North Melbourne's Jy Simpkin will need to pass fitness tests over the coming days to be cleared for Saturday's match against St Kilda after suffering quad tightness.

Simpkin joined the Roos' rehab group on Tuesday after scans discovered a minor strain in his quad following Round 7.

"Scans show a minor strain on one of the smaller muscles for Jy," North Melbourne head of performance Kevin White told NMFC Media.

"He will look to clear our soft tissue protocols at the end of the week to play."

Cooper Harvey (ankle), Wil Dawson (AC joint) and Eddie Ford (hip pointer) are available for selection, while second-year player Brayden George has suffered a dislocated shoulder and will require further assessment over the next week.

For the Saints, coach Ross Lyon could have Max King (knee), Mason Wood (collarbone) and Hunter Clark (calf) available for the clash with the Roos.

All three players will undergo testing over the coming days, while the likes of Paddy Dow, Ben Paton and Matthew Allison will be available after getting through last week's VFL action unscathed.

Season over for Adelaide youngster

Crows forward Luke Pedlar will reportedly undergo season-ending shoulder surgery after suffering the setback in Saturday's win over North Melbourne.

Pedlar was in visible pain as he came from the field in the opening term of the game in Tasmania after hurting his shoulder in an attempted tackle, with 21-year-od subbed out of the match amid fears of an incoming and significant spell on the sidelines for the small forward.

9 News Adelaide reporter Braden Ingram has since revealed that Pedlar will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the 2024 season due to the injury.

The Crows have stated they are currently awaiting advice from the surgeon to learn the full extent of Pedlar's return timeframe.

“Luke hurt his shoulder that he's had a few minor issues with in the past in a contest early in the game,” Adelaide high-performance manager Darren Burgess said in a club update.

“He had to come off and he's seeing the surgeon today. We're not too sure where that will lead but he will miss this weekend for sure.

“It's a bit sore but the initial scans were a bit mixed so we'll see what the surgeon says and be guided by that."

Pedlar's potential season-long setback would see the attacker become the third Crow set to miss the remaining rounds of the season, with Patrick Parnell (shoulder) and Wayne Milera (knee) already sidelined. Adelaide have also lost veteran Rory Sloane to retirement amid his own battle with an eye issue.

Brodie Smith (back) trained fully on Monday and is expected to be available, while Sam Berry (foot) is in a similar position. The Crows could also recall Lachie Murphy and Harry Schoenberg following their returns through the SANFL.

GWS pair yet to get green light, ruckman hamstrung

Senior GWS duo Sam Taylor and Stephen Coniglio will face fitness tests over the coming days as they look to return for Saturday's clash with rivals Sydney.

Taylor is in line to be cleared from concussion protocols ahead of the weekend, while Coniglio will also be required to be given the green light to return from a recent knee injury, with both players expected to be available.

The Giants will also have captain Toby Greene available following his one-game suspension, while defender Isaac Cumming made a successful return from a calf issue through the VFL over the weekend.

In the warm-up for that game against North Melbourne's reserves, ruckman Braydon Preuss suffered a hamstring strain and will now miss close to a month of action.

“It's disappointing for Braydon,” GIANTS Head of Medical James Rahme said.

“He has some tightness that he felt when jumping in the warm-up, so we pulled him out as a precaution, but subsequent scans have revealed a hamstring strain.

“He'll return to running next week and is expected to miss around four weeks.”
