Melbourne Storm has received some welcome relief on the injury front after five-eighth Scott Hill was cleared of any serious damage to the shoulder he re-injured in last week�s loss to the Cowboys.
Any fears that Hill would require a season-ending shoulder reconstruction were allayed today following arthroscopic surgery that revealed no more than bruising to the 25-year-old�s left rotator cuff.
�Scott�s rotator cuff was swollen and bruised and some tissue was removed but there were no underlying tears of any structures in the shoulder,� Storm doctor Greg Hickey said.
�We expect him to make a full recovery fairly quickly. The procedure he�s had today has turned out to be relatively minor so we are looking at four to six weeks for him to return.�
Hill first injured his shoulder in the Storm�s round one win over the Sharks and after missing three matches aggravated the injury midway through the first half of last week�s match in Townsville.
