Sydney Roosters star Luke Keary has been spotted in a moon boot, sparking potential fears over yet another innjury setback.
The halfback was sidelined for most of the 2021 NRL season with an ACL injury and is expected to sit out another month or so before getting back to full fitness.
Head coach of the Roosters, Trent Robinson, told SEN that the 29-year-old had surgery in October on a pre-existing concern and will be back to full fitness by the end of January.
“He’s always had ankle or foot issues so he just had a bone spur removed in October just to free up that ankle a bit more,” Robinson said.
“But he’s cool, he’ll be right by the end of January, he’ll be out in the next couple of days to get back to running. (I’m) looking forward to having Luke back that’s for sure.”
It’s brilliant news in that respect for Sydney, with the club previously having to go through the season battered and bruised – though the likes of Sam Walker will certainly be all the more better for it.
Fingers crossed that Keary can put his injury nightmare behind him going into 2022.
