St George Illawarra Dragons winger, Amos Roberts received some good news today after being told he would not require shoulder surgery as expected. Indications are that Roberts may return in six weeks time.
An orthopedic surgeon confirmed today that Roberts has a fracture in his right shoulder. But the outcome was better than expected and a reconstruction will not be required.
Roberts had reconstructive surgery on the same shoulder in 2002.
It was earlier thought he may miss the season following an injury sustained in the Dragons v Cowboys match in round 12.
