Injury Update: Round 16

Football Operations Coordinator Ryan Hoffman gives us an update on our injury list heading into the Origin II bye round.

Tom Eisenhuth (dislocated elbow)

Sidelined since: Round 15

A stalwart of this injury list and someone we hoped wouldn't be named here again for a long while, Tom dislocated his elbow during Saturday night's match.

"You could see he was in a fair bit of pain, the poor guy," Hoffman said.

"He was alright once they put the elbow back in and he doesn't require surgery.

"He is getting some more scans to determine his time out."

Harry Grant (hamstring strain)

Sidelined since: Round 15

Harry also left the field during our last game with a hamstring issue.

"It's a low grade injury for Harry," Hoffman said. "We expect he will be out for 2-3 weeks."

Reimis Smith (ankle)

Sidelined since: Round 15

It was a horror night for injuries on Saturday; our third casualty was Reimis who didn't return to the field after he rolled his ankle while scoring his second try.

"He's touch and go for next week (Roosters match)," Hoff said.

"We will re-assess as we get closer."

Brandon Smith (calf)

Sidelined since: Round 15

No need to stress about this one according to Hoff and Cheese himself.

"As Brandon said after the match, there was a bit of grade three carry on," Hoffman said.

"He was taken off more as a precautionary action - he only had a calf cork."

Jesse Bromwich (elbow)

Sidelined since: Round 14

Jesse was rested in round 15 due to an ongoing elbow issue. 

"He should be sweet for the Roosters game," Hoff said.

Kenny Bromwich (ribs)

Sidelined since: Round 13

Kenny hasn't played since he copped a big hit in our game against the Titans.

He had his ribs injected with a pain killer last week to see if he could play through his injury but it wasn't effective.

"We expect he will play in round 17," Hoff said.

Ryan Papenhuyzen (concussion)

Sidelined since: Round 10

Paps has returned to full training but the healing process after a concussion isn't linear.

"Although I'd love to give an update about when I'll be back playing, this is just one of those injuries where I'm not able to do that," Paps said in a note shared on Twitter last week.

"The club has been great, treating this with caution and going above and beyond to provide the best treatment and information for me.

"Missing footy games and not being able to be myself is frustrating for me and the people close to me... hopefully back out there soon."

Max King (achilles)

Sidelined since: January 2021

Max is making slow progress after a number of setbacks during his rehab (following off-season surgery). Still no expected return date yet.

Ryley Jacks (ankle)

Sidelined since: Round 14

Another player who has been in the wars this season, Jacksy injured his ankle during our ISC feeder club clash. Scans confirmed his ankle isn't broken, but he will spend another few weeks on the sidelines.
