Rabbitohs halfback, Adam Reynolds, may have cracked his jaw in Round 1, but that hasn’t stopped the smile returning to his face just weeks after the injury as he patiently continues his rehab.
Reynolds left the field of play in Round 1 against the Roosters after sustaining the injury by landing on the hip of Kane Evans. But Reynolds told the Rugby League media this week that he is well on the mend and feeling good having already returned to the training paddock.
“It’s feeling alright mate actually,” said Reynolds.
“It’s coming along good – still a few more weeks off. I’ve just got to assess it each week as it comes. I’ll get some more scans in the near future and take it from there.
“With bones you’ve just sort of got to take it slow and my priority is just to get it right at the moment.”
Asked how soon it would be before he returned to the field, Reynolds tentatively indicated his thoughts on the matter while also highlighting the need for patience
“I’d like to think Round seven or eight,” said Reynolds.
“That’s six weeks from when it happened – in saying that if it’s not right by then I won’t be pushing it at this stage of the season.
“It’s a long year ahead – it’s not one to rush back for.”
In Reynolds’ absence, the halves combination of Luke Keary and Cody Walker have stepped in to guide the men in Red and Green around the field – a partnership that Reynolds has praised for their efforts ahead of Friday’s blockbuster clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
