The backrower provided more details to The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.
“I just caught up with mates and rolled down a big hill until I hit a rocky end,” he said.
“My head hit it hard and I didn’t think I’d survive. But I’ve come through it.
“I’m in survival mode and it’s been a mess but I am OK.”
The Sea Eagles have released the following statement on Thompson’s health via the club website.
“Joel suffered a facial injury and severe concussion following a fall on Sunday night on the Central Coast,” the statement reads.
“He is in a stable condition and is expected to be released from a Sydney hospital later this week.
