Rejuvenated Sydney Roosters playmaker Todd Carney was lucky not to suffer serious injuries as a result of falling from a balcony on Monday.

Sportsnewsfirst reported the 24-year-old tried to recover some keys before falling from the balcony of his residence in Coogee.

Roosters CEO Steve Noyce was in no doubt that Carney would be right to come back to training in January.

 "I'd say the only thing that was hurt is his pride," Noyce said.

Carney had a remarkable return to the NRL in 2010, winning the RLIF International Player of the Year award along with the Dally M Medal.
