Richmond are confident that they'll regain key forward Tom Lynch for this weekend's clash against Brisbane at the MCG after the tall Tiger missed Rounds 18 and 19 with a hamstring injury.

Lynch suffered the injury in Round 17's clash with Gold Coast but has recovered well, with Richmond's Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge confirming that Lynch was likely to be selected for the Sunday afternoon clash.

"He got going pretty quickly in the first seven days, then last week he progressed and was running quite fast by the end of the week," Burge said.

"So, we've pretty much started full training this week and he completed full training today. We've got another session on Thursday... And I anticipate he'll be selected for Sunday's game."

The Tigers are also likely to regain Jack Ross who has been dealing with a knee injury, having not played since Round 16, with Burge confirming he should be available for selection.

"He had a little bit of a medial ligament strain in his knee from a training session a few weeks ago," Burge said.

"Last week, he participated in full training but still didn't feel quite right. But he's full trained today and feels a lot better and I'd expect he'll be available for selection this weekend."

The news isn't as good for Tigers superstar Dustin Martin, facing a further setback after suffering a minor hamstring injury in Round 16. The Brownlow medallist has had to scale back his recovery after an incident while running, delaying his return to the field.

"We found two weeks in that it was moving a little slower than we would have liked, and last week he was doing some strides at about 50 per cent and felt a little bit of a grab in that same tissue," Burge said.

"He had some scans which showed what we thought had happened and we've just had to take back a step and slow his running down.

"It's going to extend his timeframe which is unfortunate and disappointing, but we want to make sure when we get players back, they're back and they stay back."

Young defender Ben Miller, who was substituted in the final term of Richmond's draw against Fremantle with cramping, was initially not mentioned in the injury update, with the Tigers proving no further insight into the backman's groin injury.
