This Injury Report is brought to you by nib. Live Health First with nib.



Liam Baker, soreness

"'Bakes' is back full training, he'll be available on Saturday."

James Trezise, concussion and Sam Banks, concussion

"They're both feeling a lot better, will train all week and be available on the weekend."

Seth Campbell, knee

"He is (set to be available) as well. He's going really well, we'll see him on Saturday."

Sam Naismith, knee

"It's heartbreaking, isn't it? He's so important to be around the group though as a quality guy, and we saw that on Sunday when he got hurt, he was back out on the bench supporting the boys. It's going to be really important to have him around for the rest of the year and hopefully his rehab goes really well."

Ryan Mansell, concussion

"He's got a few headaches and not sleeping, all the usual concussion symptoms. We'll have an update early next week to see how he's going for the Geelong game."

Jacob Bauer, quad

"He was just a little bit sore coming off his first game back for a while, and we just took the cautious approach, given how much he's missed. He trained mostly today (Tuesday), and if he gets through training on Thursday, he'll be available again on the weekend."

Dylan Grimes, back

"Dylan's coming in and out of training, he hasn't completed a session yet. His back's sort of on and off sore. We'll just assess him as he goes over the next week or so. But at the moment, he's unavailable until he can complete training."

Maurice Rioli, ankle

"Surgery went really well, Maurice is back at the club, and he's attacking his rehab. We'll see Maurice later in the year."

Jack Graham, hamstring

"Jack's now in the same situation as pre the Bulldogs game (Round 9), he's flat out sprinting and involved in training. But, given that he did have a recurrence during that game, we're going to hold on for another week and have another week of training and see him against Geelong."

Jacob Hopper, hamstring

"(He's tracking) really well. He's just introduced himself back into some skills today, and, we're going to get a couple of weeks of footy into him before we see him again. So, it's looking likely the Adelaide game."

Tim Taranto, wrist

"Tim's going really well. He's been working really hard on his non-contact skills while he's had his broken wrist. He's also been working really hard with our speed coach Dan Bailey on his acceleration technique. He's doing as much footy as he can without contact at the moment. We're just waiting for a final tick off, but we're thinking likely the Adelaide game at this stage for his return."

Tom Lynch, hamstring

"Good news with Tom, his surgeon was really happy with where he's at. He was introduced today back into some skills. It's going to be really important to get a good block of football into Tom before we see him, and we're aiming for him to be returning before the bye."
