Gold Coast Titans five-eighth Ash Taylor has sustained a broken hand in the weekend's local derby win over the Brisbane Broncos.

Taylor, who celebrated his 100th game as a Titan during the fixture, joins Brian Kelly on the injured list, who also has a broken hand.

"We have one injury (from the weekend) to Ash Taylor who has broken a metacarpal in the hand, so a hand fracture," said Titans High Performance Manager, Klint Hoare.

"That unfortunately will see him out probably until round 5 against the Knights.

"Brian Kelly sustained a metacarpal, hand fracture against the Warriors in Round 1.

"His return to play, we are looking for the game verse the Knights (Round 5), if not sooner, hopefully the Canberra Raiders."

One other concern for the Titans from the weekend was David Fifita who had to go off after a head knock, but has recovered well after following all of the NRL guidelines in the days since the game.

"David Fifita picked up a little bit of a knock (to the head) in the game and he went off for a HIA (Head Injury Assessment) and he cleared that at the game and went through all of the protocols, before returning to the field," Hoare said.

"Post that he has had all the tests which is the protocol to follow post game and he has been all cleared and ready to go against the North Queensland Cowboys."

While in a case of bad luck, Titans recruit Herman Ese'ese had a nasty head clash while playing in the Intrust Super Cup for the Tweed Seagulls and will potentially require some work to some damaged teeth.

"Herman Ese'ese has picked up a knock in the game for the Tweed Seagulls, our feeder club, and it looks like at the moment he is waiting on results from the orthodontist to do with his teeth and we will know a bit more at the end of the week," said Hoare.

With the inclimate weather, the Titans have had to be a little creative this week and will move some of their training to Cbus Super Stadium as the heavy rain affects the training field.

"As we know Parkwood (training field) is under water at the moment, like most of Australia, so we have had to adapt and hopefully for the remainder of the week we will get on Cbus Super Stadium and prepare for the North Queensland Cowboys.
