Rabbitohs High Performance Manager, Troy Thomson, has provided an update on the casualty ward at the Club following the Good Friday clash against the Bulldogs.
“After the game we had a look at it and the doc and the physio had a real good examination of that,” said Thomson.
“It looks like he’s ruptured that lateral ligament in his knee, so again quite a serious injury if it’s as bad as we thought.
“He’ll be sent off for some scans today – if that is the case the surgeon will have to go in there and repair that ligament. We’re looking at between three and five months for rehab on that – that’s worst case scenario.”
Thomson also provided updates on Issac Luke and Glenn Stewart, both of whom failed to return to the field following head-knocks.
“They’ll go through a return to play protocol that we have in place here at the Club,” said Thomson.
“The long turnaround is really going to help us with those guys, but they’ll be training at the back-end of next week – they’ll be right to go for the next game.”
Updates on Greg Inglis and Alex Johnston also feature in the report conducted at the Club’s recovery session.
