One New Zealand Warriors winger Edward Kosi is expected to be sidelined for five or six five weeks with a knee injury.

He left the field after 31 minutes of Saturday’s Magic Round loss to Penrith.

One New Zealand Warriors head of performance Balin Cupples said Kosi has a medial femoral condylar fracture.

The injury occurred when the inside of Kosi’s left knee collided heavily with Stephen Crichton’s right knee as he was putting a heavy tackle on the Penrith centre.

Cupples said Kosi was expected to be available again in round 15 or 16.

Second rower Jackson Ford, ruled out this week, is working through NRL concussion protocols after a head knock in the Penrith match.

Second rower-prop Mitchell Barnett, out since round three with a neck injury, is due to see a specialist to determine a return to play timeline.

Brayden Wiliame (calf) will integrate into some team skills next week with a return in round 13 being targeted.

Standoff Te Maire Martin is moving into gradual weight-bearing activities as he recovers from surgery after breaking the fibula in his left leg.

In a positive injury development, playmaker Luke Metcalf has come off the injury list this week and is due to make a comeback from his hamstring injury when he lines up for the club’s New South Wales Cup side against the Bulldogs on Saturday.
