Pictures have surfaced that prove Eels recruit Blake Ferugson did not fake a foot injury to cover up an alleged drug overdose.
The Sunday Telegraph published the photos from Ferguson's injured left foot that led to his hospitalisation in December.
The 28-year old was happy for the photos to surface following reports that he ended up in hospital due to an off-season bender that led to a drug overdose.
The Sunday Telegraph also also reportedly seen a copy of Ferguson's medical report.
The Roosters premiership player admitted himself to hospital on Christmas day last year after a cut on his foot became infected, spending 10 days in hospital after undergoing surgery.
Ferguson is expected to be fit for Parramatta's round one clash against the Panthers on March 17.
