Knights hooker Jayden Brailey’s season could be over after tearing his ACL.

The 23-year old suffered the injury in Sunday’s win over the Wests Tigers and will require a reconstruction.

But could the COVID-19 crisis actually save Brailey’s season, given games could be played in December?

The NRL reportedly believes June could be a best-case scenario return date, but the likelihood of returning then is cloudy.

Brailey remained positive was keen to attack his rehab head on.

β€œI’m extremely disappointed but I will bounce back,” Brailey toldΒ newcastleknights.com.au.

β€œI’ll take this challenge head on and look forward to re-joining my teammates.”
