Don cleared for takeoff as Lisone and Herbert are grounded

The Titans have had some good news on the injury front with Anthony Don cleared for takeoff this week against the Brisbane Broncos in the Macca's Local Derby.

Titans High Performance Manager, Klint Hoare, said he was close last week but will be available for selection come Friday night.

"Great news with Anthony Don, obviously he was ruled out in the Captain's Run last week prior to the Rabbitohs game," Hoare said.

"This week he has trained really well and hopefully he will be selected and ready to play.

Unfortunately the Titans were hit with a couple of fresh injuries on Friday night which reduced their bench rotation to two.

Sam Lisone and Patrick Herbert both tried to play on gallantly but succumb to their respective injuries throughout the match.

"It was quite a physical match on Friday against the South Sydney Rabbitohs so there was a bit of soreness the next day and we have unfortunately picked up a couple of injuries.

"Sam Lisone has unfortunately picked up a pectoral tear, not in the tendon but more so in the muscle.

"He has had scans and it looks like probably a six-week progression to return to play.

"Patty Herbert unfortunately picked up a calf injury in the game.

"He sustained it about halfway through the first half, but it tightened up over the half time break and it looks like he has a Grade 2 strain in the calf muscle.

"We are looking for Patty a four-week turnaround, but they (Calf injuries) are hard to judge.

One Titan who was able to finish the game through injury was Kevin Proctor.

"Kevin Proctor sustained a slight knee injury to his MCL, he has had scans and it is looking pretty promising, so we are planning for him to be available this weekend against the Broncos.

In what was a tough weekend for the club on the injury front, outside back Jonus Pearson was struckdown by a knee injury.

"Q Cup (Intrust Super Cup) was a hard game for Burleigh against the PNG Hunters and Jonus Pearson sustained an MCL injury.

"He will get scans today and we will know the severity this afternoon, which is unfortunate for him because he was in some good form."
