The Rabbitohs will be without halfback Adam Reynolds for 6-8 weeks after scans this morning revealed a broken thumb sustained in last night’s match against the Dragons.
Reynolds played for the whole 80 minutes, with scans today showing the fracture in his thumb.
In better news for the Rabbitohs, John Sutton’s eye injury is not as bad as first thought, with Sutton likely to play against the Melbourne Storm this Saturday night.
Sutton was suffering from double vision on field after copping a finger in his eye while being tackled, and with the player’s best interests at heart he was taken from the field and taken to hospital with suspected damage to the retina.
His eye has settled down greatly today and he will be monitored up until game day but the Rabbitohs medical team are confident that he will be ok to play on Saturday night.
