Parramatta will be without centre Michael Jennings this weekend, after he entered an early guilty plea for a Grade Two – Careless High Tackle charge.

Jennings took Penrith forward Isaah Yeo high during the 54th minute of their clash on Sunday, and was subsequently sin binned for the hit.

The Eels centre will now miss his side’s clash with Canterbury on Sunday, before being available for a return to the Parramatta line-up ahead of their clash on Friday, March 29 with the Sydney Roosters.

Parramatta have also confirmed the injury timelines for Nathan Brown (pec) and Will Smith (arm), with the pair set for lengthy stints on the sidelines.

Brown is aiming for a Round 14 return after suffering a pectoral tear, while Smith will be out until Round 8 with a fractured arm.
