Sydney Roosters medical staff have revealed five-eighth Luke Keary has suffered an MCL strain to his left leg, and could miss up to four weeks.

Keary left the field early in the second half, but has escaped serious injury, and will likely return to the Roosters’ line-up before the finals commence.

Origin forward Dylan Napa missed the win against the Dragons as he continues to work his way back from an MCL injury of his own, although roosters.com.au have confirmed he is likely to be available for this weekend’s clash with North Queensland.

  1. That’s not real good news but at least he will be fit and ready for the semis. I hope they don’t rush him back to soon and that the Chooks learnt their lesson, remembering when they pushed to get Pearce back in a 2015 preliminary final against Brisbane after missing 4 or 5 weeks, he broke down by half time and could not play the second half. Rest Keary up until he is 110 % ready Robo. Matterson a giant of a pivot who is very capable of filling in at 5/8, so to is Radley or is it time for young Lam as O’Sullivan plays halfback and despite what some people claim they are to very different roles of game play. 🐓
