Raiders five-eighth Blake Austin will be given every chance to prove his fitness ahead of this weekend's clash with the Dragons at Glen Willow Oval, following an ankle injury sustained on the weekend.

Austin suffered the injury during the side's round 10 loss to the Sharks, and the early prognosis was that he could miss up to six weeks with a possible syndesmosis injury.

Austin received positive test results today and should come back no later than the Raiders' round 12 clash with the Sea Eagles at GIO Stadium if he fails to get up this weekend.
