Roosters superstar James Tedesco is in doubt to line-up for New South Wales in November after sustaining a knee injury during the Chooks semi-final loss to Canberra on the weekend, per NRL.com.
Despite playing through the injury that the fullback picked up in the second half of the 22-18 loss, Tedesco is now unlikely to face Queensland in Game One of the upcoming Origin Series.
