Storm Premiership players Tim Glasby and Curtis Scott are set for a stint on the sidelines after suffering injuries in Melbourne's 50-10 victory over the Warriors on ANZAC Day.
Glasby suffered a broken thumb during the first half of play while Scott's leg was caught under an opponent midway through the second half.
"Unfortunately Tim has suffered a broken thumb and has undergone surgery today – we are expecting him to miss 4-6 weeks of football," Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi explained on Thursday.
"Scans suggest Curtis has suffered a high ankle sprain and he will miss the next few weeks.
"However until his swelling settles we are unable to specify a timeline exactly. We will have a better understanding in the coming days."
Suliasi Vunivalu missed last night's match-up at AAMI Park with a low-grade hamstring injury but is expected to be available for selection in Round 9.
Melbourne now have an 11-day break before meeting the in form Dragons at Kogarah in Round 9. St. George Illawarra also posted a victory on Wednesday, defeating the Sydney Roosters in their traditional ANZAC Day clash.
