Concerns following the Melbourne Storm's 22-6 loss to the Parramatta Eels with centre Cheyse Blair potentially out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

Blair had been sidelined recently after having minor ankle surgery in mid June. This was his first game back since the surgery.

Unfortunately, Blair suffered an injury to his ankle and was forced from the field in the first half and did not return.

Storm coach Craig Bellamy then revealed in the post-match press conference that the injury could see Blair sidelined for the remainder of the season.

“It looks like he has cracked his ankle again,” Craig Bellamy said.

“He had a pin put in there… five or six weeks ago. I don’t think we will see Cheyse again this year by the sound of it.

“I am not quite sure what has gone wrong… obviously, they won’t know until he has a scan but it is bad news.”

Young gun Curtis Scott was a late scratching from the match but if Blair is out for the rest of the season, Storm fans won't be too disappointed with the prospect of Scott replacing him on a full-time basis.
