The Broncos have a mammoth injury toll, with up to 14 players in the casualty ward after Friday night's 18-16 loss to St George Illawarra.
The biggest concern is Queensland fullback Karmichael Hunt, who has been ruled out for two months with a broken foot and will undergo surgery tomorrow. Forward Ben Hannant requires a knee operation and is expected to be out for up to five weeks.
The Bulldogs will be hoping for good news on the injury front today after a jarred knee forced Sonny Bill Willams from the field during his side's 20-12 NRL victory over North Queensland.
Williams will undergo scans today to determine the extent of the damage. The Kiwi international is not the only injury concern for the Bulldogs with Matt Utai sustaining a thumb injury and Dallas McIlwain a groin strain in the match.
For the Cowboys, Matt Bowen hurt his ankle and teammate Ashley Graham suffered a suspected dislocated knee. Cronulla's Phil Bailey suffered a suspected depressed cheekbone fracture in Saturday's win against Manly and will see a specialist today.
