Injury update: Blake out, Matterson recovering

The Parramatta Eels can confirm Waqa Blake suffered a lower leg injury in the last week.

He is expected to be out for around six weeks, before returning to play.

Ryan Matterson left the field early last night in the 46th minute and did not return after failing a HIA.

Ryan was in good spirits after the game.

The Club’s medical team will continue to monitor Ryan closely and follow the recommended protocols before making a decision regarding his return to play and availability.

Meanwhile, Bryce Cartwright remains sidelined with a fractured jaw along with Michael Oldfield who is recovering from an MCL injury.

Bryce Cartwright – Jaw (Round 4-6)

Michael Oldfield – Knee (Round 4-6)
