Crawford, Kerr named to play

Veteran onballers Shane Crawford and Daniel Kerr are in the announced teams for Sunday's AFL matches, despite speculation that injuries might sideline them.

Crawford was restricted with more knee trouble a fortnight ago in the win over West Coast, but Hawthorn named him as they made three changes.

Brad Sewell was recalled only a week after having his appendix removed, along with Chance Bateman and Simon Taylor.

Jordan Lewis (quad), Brent Renouf (suspended) and Tim Clarke made way for the trio.

As expected, Sydney made one change for the MCG game against the Hawks, as Adam Goodes resumes from suspension and Barry Hall is sidelined for the same reason.

The Eagles named Kerr for the home match against Richmond, after he was injured by a sting ray two weekends ago.

Kerr has also battled knee trouble and illness.

West Coast recalled Michael Braun, Brett Jones, Josh Kennedy and David Wirrpanda for Jaymie Graham, Jamie McNamara, Will Schofield and Brent Staker.

Tigers star Matthew Richardson is out with a hamstring injury, Graham Polak will be out for at least the rest of the season after suffering a brain injury when hit by a tram and Chris Hyde was dropped.

They recalled Daniel Connors, Luke McGuane and Jay Schulz.

Family reasons will force Western Bulldogs star Ryan Griffen to miss the Telstra Dome game against Melbourne.

The Bulldogs have promoted Jarrod Harbrow as the Demons brought in Daniel Bell, Cale Morton and Michael Newton for Brock McLean (ankle), Jace Bode and Aaron Davey.
