Sydney Roosters prop Adrian Morley is rated some chance of taking on Parramatta on Sunday after scans today cleared him of a broken hand. It was initially feared the Great Britain international would be sidelined for up to a month after he was forced from the field in yesterday's 28-26 win over South Sydney.
But scans today revealed only ligament damage to his right hand, with Roosters coach Ricky Stuart to delay a decision on his availability for the clash with the Eels until later in the week.
The news wasn't as good for Wests Tigers utility Daniel Fitzhenry, who will undergo surgery on a broken collarbone tomorrow. The injury is likely to keep Fitzhenry out for up to six weeks. Fullback Shannon McDonnell will undergo further tests on a rib injury tomorrow.
