Things aren't going great for Canterbury at the moment. The Dogs are on the bottom of the ladder after Friday's 14-8 loss to South Sydney, and already have the likes of Dylan Napa and Kieran Foran on the long-term injury list.

Adam Elliott and Nick Meaney are now both in doubt for next weekend's clash with the Cowboys, after both picking up injuries against the Rabbitohs.

Elliott will soon have an MRI scan to determine the severity of his rib injury, as he looks like a slim chance to face North Queensland.

Meaney on the other hand could play against the Cowboys, although his finger injury could be a serious one if scans return with nerve damage.

The fullback received a serious finger laceration, one that was so bad the Bulldogs' trainers could see his bone and tendons.

"He's had a pretty severe laceration on his finger," Dogs coach Dean Pay said after the game.

"He copped a boot taking up the kick.

"We're going to have to have scans on it and see how bad it is.

"Whether it's nerves or not, it's fairly serious."

The Dogs only have one win to their name so far this season, which came against the Tigers in round three.
