Melbourne Storm have lost another player through serious injury after young centre Jake Webster ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament playing for feeder club Brisbane Norths last Sunday.
Webster ? who made his NRL debut in round two this year against the Panthers - will require a season-ending knee reconstruction after yesterday?s MRI scan revealed a torn ACL in his right knee.
The 19-year-old becomes the twelfth casualty on the Storm?s roster of 28 players, barely leaving enough fit personnel to field a team for this Saturday?s clash with the Knights at Energy Australia Stadium.
Fellow centre Steven Bell will undergo an arthroscope later today to determine the extent of a knee injury suffered at training last week.
STORM?S INJURY CLOUD: Steven Bell ? knee (operation today) Robbie Ross ? hip flexor (to be tested) Scott Hill ? shoulder (to be tested) Aaron Moule ? groin (to be tested) Andrew McFadden ? groin (3-4 weeks) Junior Langi ? shoulder (3-4 weeks) Nathan Friend ? ankle (6-8 weeks) Rodney Howe ? knee (12-15 weeks) Michael Russo ? knee (indefinite) Fifita Moala ? knee (indefinite) Robert Tanielu ? neck (indefinite) Jake Webster ? knee (indefinite)
