Ellis frustrated by latest injury setback
Hull KR's Jamie Ellis is hopes he won't face too long on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury on Friday.
Ellis had been due to start at Leeds Rhinos but picked up the injury in the warm-up and was unable to take part.
The 30-year-old half-back arrived at the club with a knee injury in December and missed most of pre-season, but had made a promising start to his second spell with the Robins.
The former Castleford and Huddersfield star will undergo a scan on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.
"It happened in the warm-up," Ellis told the Hull Daily Mail. "I just sprinted and felt my hammy go.
"I've never done my hammy before. It just felt like a sharp pain, a bit of cramp sort of thing. I knew it wasn't right straight away. It was the last sprint, I felt it and thought 'that's not good'. [I'm] Gutted.
"It's frustrating. I was injured all of last year, played two games this year feeling alright playing-wise and getting a few games together and then this happens.
"But I suppose it's out of my hands and you can't help it, can you? Hopefully the scan's not too bad and I can play next week hopefully. We'll wait and see."
