The Western Bulldogs are unlikely to take Tim English north for the trip to Brisbane.

English missed the win over Hawthorn after suffering delayed concussion symptoms from the Round 14 clash with GWS.

“He’s not a guarantee,” said coach Luke Beveridge.

“I’m not sure, maybe he probably won’t go with his past.

“We’ll keep him for another week and take care of him.”

Fox Sports News reporter Drew Jones tweeted monday night: “Tim English has had some light training this weekend, but he continues to be careful on his return from a concussion.

“I still had some symptoms at the end of last week. Probably not suitable for Thursday night.”

Ed Richards will miss under the AFL’s concussion protocols.

Scans have been cleared Brisbane middle Jarryd Lyons of a serious rib injury, good news for the club.

Lyons took a knee to the chest in a marker match in Thursday night’s loss to Melbourne, spending time on the bench as a result.

The 29-year-old was kicked out of the game after reporting pain to the club’s medical staff.

He was sent on Saturday for scans that cleared him of a fracture or fracture.

Melbourne‘s Max Gawn is making rapid progress in his recovery, but will miss one more game due to his ankle syndesmosis injury.

“We are letting Max Gawn make good progress on his running and we will be judging him day by day,” said Demons performance manager Selwyn Griffith.

Geelong are ready to have Gary Rohan available for just his third match for the year in round 16.

The forward missed the thrilling win over Richmond after being stricken with illness.

But he is expected to be fit, just like a superstar Patrick Dangerfieldwith Fox Sports News’ Drew Jones reporting that the Brownlow medalist is “all set to return”.

“Last Friday big session, weekend off to freshen up and then back on track today. Lock him up for Saturday night against the Roos’ he tweeted

Carlton’s hapless defense has taken another blow with Jordan Boyd broke his foot in the win over Fremantle.

The young backman “remains an opportunity to be available late in the season,” the club said after two strong weeks.

Ex-selection first round Sam Philippe will miss the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his foot while Adam Cerra (hamstring) and Jack Martin (calf) his tests for this week, and Jacob Weitering (AC joint) is expected to miss another week.

Adelaide will be without Will Hamill before the clash with Prime Ministers Melbourne.

Hamill was eliminated in the win over North Melbourne and will be sidelined under the AFL’s concussion protocols.

Shane McAdam also got injured in the win over the ‘Ross and looked sad on the bench right after he got off the ground.

“McAdam sustained an ankle injury during a marking game in the last quarter and did not participate in the game. He will be assessed in the coming days,” the club said in a statement.

Fremantle will not have Darcy Tucker available for selection after the midfielder injured his finger in the WAFL.

The club confirmed that Tucker has undergone surgery despite finishing the game on Saturday.

“He’s been a bit unlucky, Darcy, he suffered a fractured finger that required surgery,” said Dockers footy boss Peter Bell.

“He will get that done and a timetable will be advised after surgery.”

Blake Acres (hamstring) also remains offside, but there is better news for it Michael Walters and Josh Treacy both of which could appear this Sunday.

“We’ll see how Michael gets through the week and call if he’s available this week,” Bell said.

“Josh is recovering from that ankle injury he sustained a few weeks ago.

“He’s steadily ticking the boxes and we’ll see how he develops over the course of the week.”

Heath Chapman is in a race to prove his suitability to face Port Adelaide, and looks set to play more in Round 17.

Gold Coast say Alex Davies is “very doubtful” to be up front in round 16.

Davies was eliminated in the fourth quarter after losing to Port Adelaide.

Coach Stuart Dew said the club was waiting for scans but said the fact that Davies was unable to play the match meant he was unlikely to play it against Collingwood on Saturday night.

“He pinched his knee a little bit, the medial we think,” Dew said.

“He couldn’t go any further, so assuming he would be highly doubtful next week.”

Port Adelaide have confirmed defender Riley Bonner suffered a fractured cheekbone and eye socket in the Gold Coast win.

Bonner was able to finish the game in the second term after the collision.

He is now going for surgery and is expected to miss up to four weeks.

In better news, defenders Darcy Byrne-Jones and Tom Clurey are set to fly west to face Fremantle after clearing the AFL’s health and safety protocols.

Bag Butters (knee) must prove his fitness if he wants to play in round 16.
