Injury update: Averillo suffers hip injury

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs can provide the latest injury update heading into Round 14 of the NRL premiership.

Centre Jake Averillo suffered a hip pointer injury during the side’s loss to the Melbourne Storm in Round 13.

Averillo left the field after 16 minutes and failed to return. The 19-year old has improved over the last 48 hours and will be available for selection this week.

Will Hopoate will re-join the main squad this week as he continues to recover from an ankle syndesmosis injury. The outside back is still 1 to 2 weeks away from returning to play.

Rookie Isaiah Tass has made a full recovery from a ruptured PCL to his left knee and is back at full training.

Adam Elliott is still in a brace following shoulder surgery and he will look to start his physio and rehab programs over the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, Joe Stimson continues to improve and build on his running, skills and strength program as he works his way back from two shoulder operations earlier in the season.
