Richmond’s Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge provides Richmond Media with the latest injury report, brought to you by Victor Sports.

Dion Prestia and Toby Nankervis, ankle

"(They're progressing) really good. Toby's going great, he started running a couple of days ago and looks fantastic. So, we're expecting his progression will be fairly solid over the next week or so, he's not too far away. He's running and feeling really good. Dion is a little bit behind Toby at this stage. He'll start running this week but he's been doing a lot of walking and his strength exercises, so he's progressing well."

Nick Vlastuin, calf

"Nick trained today (Sunday) with the group and did some running two days ago as well. It was very minor and it was a tough decision not to play him (against the Bulldogs) because he wasn't too bad. But with the three games in the space of 10 days, it was just the right call. But he'll play on Tuesday night."

David Astbury, knee

"As we said a week ago, we hadn't been able to progress with his training. This particular cartilage damage behind his patella can be quite tricky, you need enough time for that to fill in."

Josh Caddy, hamstring

"We're aiming for the Port Adelaide game for Saturday for Josh, but he needs to fully train all this week and we'll confirm his availability after our main session on Thursday."

Ryan Garthwaite, groin

"With 'Garthy' we've been managing some groin pain over the last couple of weeks and it hadn't really progressed. But in the last week he's made some good strides with that. Today, he trained with some intensity in our rehab group. So, we'll look at progressing him back into the main group next week."

Callum Coleman-Jones, foot

"We had some not-so-good news with Callum late last week. He was feeling some pain in his foot and we went and got a scan and he's got a very minor stress reaction in his third metatarsal. We didn't need to put him in a boot and he's feeling better already. It should be a couple of weeks and then he can resume training."

Bigoa Nyuon, shoulder

"'Biggie' had an incident a few weeks ago with his shoulder, recovered quite well and was back with our training group in Melbourne. He then had another little minor one and we decided to get the shoulder surgery done (now) rather than wait until the end of the year, with no football being played in Melbourne. He's had surgery this week and will be on a three to four month rehabilitation process setting him up for next season."
