Achilles tendinitis will sideline Newcastle Knights hooker Danny Buderus for 3-4 weeks.
In Monday night’s Round 8 game, Buderus left the field before half time due to pain in his Achilles and had to watch the second half from the bench.
Buderus had scans on Tuesday before receiving the results today.
“The positive is the scans showed no tear and it is a matter of now managing the tendinitis,” Performance Director Jeremy Hickmans said.
“With a break from training and playing, Danny is hopeful to return after the bye.”
Buderus was in good spirits at training today and donned the recovery boots as part of his rehab.
Knights utility Matt Hilder will start Sunday’s game at hooker, with his replacement on the bench still to be decided.
