Confirmation from the Maroons of an AC joint injury for Valentine Holmes, not expected to require surgery (rarely required for isolated AC joint sprains).

The injury was sustained just prior to the intermission of Origin III, and kept the Queensland speedster out of the game.
The Maroons outside-back will not require surgery on his shoulder, but will require close to four weeks worth of recovery.
The Cowboys are scheduled to face the Roosters this weekend before clashes against the Storm, Broncos and Titans.
