Lodge went for scans yesterday and they have confirmed he did not fracture any ribs, suffering only a rub cartilage injury.
“It is a cartilage injury, so he has damaged the cartilage where the ribs join,” said Broncos’ High Performance Manager Jeremy Hickmans on the club website.
“He will not be able to train much this week, so we will manage him through some sessions and just see how it goes.
“If he can handle the discomfort, he is a good chance of playing against the Storm.”
The Broncos will name their Round 7 side this afternoon.
