Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs fullback Nick Meaney has suffered broken ribs in his side's loss to South Sydney.
Meaney left the field in discomfort after a heavy tackle from Rabbitohs fullback Latrell Mitchell in the second half.
Meanwhile, playmaker Lachlan Lewis lasted just seven minutes in his first game of 2021 after he failed a HIA and was ruled out for the rest of the match.
Lewis copped a head knock trying to make a front-on tackle on Souths winger Josh Mansour.
Bulldogs coach Trent Barrett confirmed the injuries following the match.
"He's not real well (Lachlan Lewis) and Nick Meaney's got broken ribs," added Barrett.
