Pilot Medical Update: Round 3

The Sydney Roosters squad has been assessed following the Club’s Round 3 match against the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Sam Walker was taken from the field after having been deemed to have a category one concussion. Having passed two Head Injury Assessments in the sheds on the night, and exhibiting no symptoms since, it has been downgraded to a category two by the NRL and he will be available for the Roosters’ Round 4 match against the Penrith Panthers.

An MRI has confirmed that Lindsay Collins sustained a low grade left hamstring strain. He has commenced the Club’s hamstring rehab protocol.

Sandon Smith suffered an elbow hyperextension just before half time. Scans have shown a significant medial ligament injury to his left elbow. The medical team has commenced rehab on the non-surgical injury and will continue testing to decide his return to play date.
