Official AFL Injury List: Ahead of Round 3

In the week where we say goodbye to a DT favourite in Lenny Hayes, there are a few lads who are joining him on the side. However, Lenny has been DT god for many years now and we all look forward to seeing the legend back in 2012.

Kurt Tippett is listed as a test and should return this week after having the week off. But the big thing here to look at is not always the guys who are in and out, from your team. Make sure you look deeper than that and check out teams such as Port and the Kangaroos who have a massive injury list. Most of these injured players are listed at about 2-5weeks, meaning they will be back soon, and when they do… the rookies they are currently playing, maybe pushed aside to make room for the guys returning.

  • Michael Barlow (Blue Juice) – TBC????

    Blue Juice really… realllllly

  • Waters needs to be updated to season :(

  • With Waters and LeCras out for ages plus Masten, the umpires will need to step up their favoritism if they want the eagles to win.

  • LRT from Sydney has a sore ar$e?

  • Nick Malcesknee.
    I see what you did there ;)

  • oh yeah… Injuries have never been so funny with me in charge of doing the weakly update! ha ha

  • How is Nick Maxwell still alive? He’s had internal bleeding for like a month now.

  • Whats happening with Hibberd?

  • Will debut in round 3 hopefully.

  • What the hell does indefiniate mean???

    Will a bicep keep Callinan out for the rest of the season?

  • As much as Hayes injury sucks for me his replacement is a no brainer…welcome to my team gibbs. No brain = not having you to start with…

  • Chris Mastenbator

  • (Blue Juice) rolling around wish i could stand up tff

  • Brak

    Dom Cassissi should have got the Blue Juice because he actually played half a game with that leg fracture!

  • Hibberd? Not this week. From the Essendon website:

    “Hi Angie, just watched it. Apparently Hibberd 1-2 weeks away as he is still recovering from quad injury, ditto with Browne and Gumby has played 3 full games now and he is where they want him to be, but no mention of him coming into the team. I hope this helps. ”


  • Anyone know how long Hibberd is out for?

    • Read the *8@*283*#*#!1@-ing post right above you?

      • Now Albert Lloyd Webber, you can’t expect all people to be as smart as your good self.

        Our friend here can’t be expected to type a question AND read other posts, it puts quite the strain on one’s cerebral cortex.

        Whilst it is still unproven, I am working on a theory that those of us predisposed to the Dream Team gene, have greatly reduced dopamine activity in the prefrontal cortex. This leads to poorer memory and less ability to concentrate.

        Poor ajw209 is merely a victim of genetics.

  • hey guys im still unsure on what to do with my mids…
    at the moment this is what i’ve got:

    boyd, pendlebury, bartel, boak, d.swallow, harris (irons, hibberd, prestia)

    i’ve got two options with what ill do but am still really unsure (i currently have 2k in the bank)

    option 1) boak to ryan okeefe and then irons to libba

    option 2) d.swallow to libba and then boak to murphy

    option 3) boak to embley and then irons to libba

    i really want to get rid of boak bcs he’ll get tagged a lot and i also want libba
