St Helens have confirmed Tommy Makinson will be out for two-to-four weeks with a foot injury.
Makinson had only just come back ahead of their Challenge Cup win over Huddersfield Giants, but only lasted a couple of minutes before picking up a similar impact.
Reacting to the news, Head Coach Kristian Woolf said: “It is not quite the same injury as what he has just come back from, but it is in a similar area. Overall the news is pretty positive considering what we thought he might have done and what it has ended up being.
“That is going to be in the vicinity of two to four weeks.”
Woolf also confirmed Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Morgan Knowles should be fit for Monday’s game against Salford Red Devils. McCarthy-Scarsbrook went off after showing signs of concussion last week and Knowles has yet to feature this season after having thumb surgery in the off-season.
Meanwhile, he also confirmed James Bentley will out for around 14 weeks after having surgery on the broken leg he picked up against Leigh Centurions.
