Gray limped off Eden Park in the first half of the Rabbitohs' tournament-opening loss to Canberra, and it was later confirmed by the club doctor he has a medial ligament injury.

The only other major injury through the first round of games was to Warriors halfback Shaun Johnson, who hurt his groin in the warm-up but is still expected to play later in the day.
