After succumbing to an injury and being forced from the field in Round 2 against the Bulldogs, scans confirmed that Blake Ferguson sustained a rib cartilage injury.

He was injured in the first half of the match before he was forced from the field in the 60th minute. 

Ferguson has been ruled out of this Saturday's Round 3 clash against the Penrith Panthers, and his injury is being monitored on a day-to-day basis. 

His replacement was named in this week's TEAM TALK
