South Sydney halfback Adam Reynolds is expected to recover from a quad injury in time to take on Manly next Monday.
Reynolds suffered the injury while kicking in the warm-up on Saturday which ruled him out of their 30-10 NRL loss to Brisbane.
It came after the Rabbitohs No.7 suffered a shoulder injury which kept him out of State of Origin III.
Aided by a nine-day turnaround, Reynolds is set to be fit to take on the Sea Eagles at Allianz Stadium.
“He’s been doing all the recovery, he was even getting work done while we were playing,” winger Alex Johnston said.
“I’m sure he’ll do everything he can to get out there.”
Reynolds has had a wretched run with injury, restricted to just nine NRL games this season after missing most of the first two months with a knee complaint.
Souths coach Michael Maguire has handy halves backs-up in John Sutton, who stepped in alongside Luke Keary against the Broncos, and in-form fullback Cody Walker.
The Rabbitohs are 13th on the ladder on the back of six straight losses and require seven wins from their final seven games to qualify for the finals.
