Eels centre Jarryd Hayne.

Parramatta Eels' Telstra Premiership campaign has gone from bad to worse with Jarryd Hayne set to miss 2-4 weeks with the hip injury he suffered in Saturday night's loss to the Cronulla Sharks.

Hayne had scans after suffering the injury in the 14-4 loss and will get the results on Monday afternoon. understands the veteran star is facing a minimum of two games on the sidelines and could be out for a month. 

Bevan French is also under an injury cloud due to the shoulder injury he suffered at ANZ Stadium on the weekend in Parramatta's third straight loss to start the season.

With Clint Gutherson still a few weeks away from a return from knee surgery, utility Will Smith could start at fullback for the Eels in their Easter Monday clash with the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.

The Tigers received better news on the injury front on Monday morning - Benji Marshall had scans on an ankle injury suffered in the second half of the side's loss to the Brisbane Broncos on Friday night and remained in a moon boot over the weekend.

However, the injury is not as serious as first feared and he is a strong chance to play against Parramatta.

Marshall will be named in the No.6 jersey on Tuesday and given every chance to prove his fitness. Tyson Gamble is set to be named on the bench as cover for Marshall while Tuimoala Lolohea is set to return from a knee injury and could also be used at five-eighth if needed.

Josh Reynolds is two weeks away from a return from his hamstring injury.
