Blues winger Blake Ferguson is highly unlikely to be back for Parramatta's clash with the Warriors on Saturday after undergoing minor knee surgery.

Ferguson sat out Sunday's loss to Manly and coach Brad Arthur said the Eels veteran was highly unlikely to suit up for the round-19 clash at Bankwest Stadium.

In good news for the Eels, mid-season recruit Waqa Blake is likely to make his first appearance for Parra after a knee injury suffered two months ago playing for Penrith.

Gold Coast fullback AJ Brimson sent a scare through the Titans camp when he was forced off during the loss to Melbourne on Sunday.

The Titans fullback was replaced by veteran Michael Gordon in the 54th minute and did not return to Cbus Super Stadium in the 20-point loss.

However, Brimson's injury has been diagnosed as a deep cork in his backside and he is expected to be fit to face the Broncos next Saturday.

Roosters hooker Jake Friend left the field early in Saturday's clash with Newcastle with a forearm injury, a week after returning from a biceps problem.

"He's got a small fracture around the screw that re-attached the biceps," coach Trent Robinson said.

"I'm not sure how long he'll be out. He's disappointed. We're all disappointed because finally we got back our crew of decision-makers – we got our captains back on the field for the first time in a long time."

The Warriors and Sharks came out of Friday's clash with injury concerns to key strike weapons.

Warriors halfback Kodi Nikorima was in a moon boot after the game after suffering an ankle injury, while winger David Fusitu'a is set to miss two games with a hamstring issue.

On the plus side the Auckland-based club hope to get Karl Lawton, Ken Maumalo and Patrick Herbert back for their round 19 road clash with Parramatta, while Tohu Harris is scheduled to return in round 21.

Sharks winger Sosaia Feki has a back injury which he suffered in the first half of the 19-18 loss to the Warriors.

Bulldogs centre Marcelo Montoya suffered a medial ligament knee injury in Thursday night's clash with Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium. Early estimates are the injury could sideline Montoya for three to four weeks.
