Taberner (ankle) is listed as a test for Round 13 against Gold Coast.

Taberner (ankle) was a late scratch from the Round 12 loss against the Western Bulldogs, according to coach Justin Longmuir. "He probably could have got to 80 per cent so it wasn't worth the risk, he's such an important player for us and we didn't want to put him at any further risk."
ANALYSIS
Taberner's absence is unfortunate after his inclusion on the initial team sheet, but now he should be at full speed by Round 13 against Gold Coast. Before picking up an ankle injury, Taberner had scored 12 goals in four matches and scored as many as 98 fantasy points in a game against Essendon.

Taberner (ankle) is dealing with some "wear and tear" and will be a test for Round 11 against Port Adelaide, according to GM Peter Bell.
ANALYSIS
Taberner will be as late a call as one can make after going through training before facing the Power. His 27 goals in 10 games is a solid tally, and his 6.1 marks per game make him worth consideration as an average-value forward if he's healthy.
