Blues coach Brad Fittler said star fullback James Tedesco is out of a knee brace but won't join NSW camp until Friday as he rehabs a knee injury.

Speaking on Monday, Fittler was not overly concerned Tedesco would miss the match.

Ove the balance of this week, his recovery will be managed by Roosters medical staff.

Panthers hooker Api Koroisau said he would be sweet to take his place in Sunday's grand final despite being forced off during the preliminary final win over Souths.

Koroisau, who left the field in the second half clutching at his shoulder and neck, said there was no serious damage and the Panthers are set to be at full strength for the showdown with the Storm with second-rower Viliame Kikau available again after serving a one-game ban.

The Melbourne Storm have confirmed their team came through Friday night's preliminary final injury-free, with the playing squad ready to back up for next week's grand final.

Get Caught Up: Finals Week 3

Dragons five-eighth Keeley Davis suffered a back injury in St George Illawarra's season-ending NRLW loss to the Warriors while halfback Maddie Studdon (ankle) and reserve Shakiah Tungai (cork) were pre-game withdrawals.

Defending premiers the Broncos finished their grand final dress rehearsal against the Roosters with a clean bill of health but they did give skipper Ali Brigginshaw and star fullback Tamika Upton a rest in the closing stages.

Roosters NRLW star Charlotte Caslick won't play again this year after scans revealed two small fractures in her lumbar spine.

The rugby sevens star has commenced a recovery program and will remain with the Roosters NRLW squad in a support role.

Cronulla forward Siosifa Talakai has undergone shoulder surgery and will join teammates Shaun Johnson (Achilles - May) and Royce Hunt (knee - May) in the club's rehab group in the off-season.

Talakai could miss the opening rounds of next season. 

In better news for the club, Blayke Brailey underwent surgery for a syndesmosis injury but is expected to be available for 2021 trials.
