Warrington forward James Laithwaite is out for six weeks after he broke an ankle playing for Swinton.
Laithwaite, who plays for the Championship club on a dual registration, suffered the injury in Swinton's 38-18 defeat at Featherstone on Monday.
Coach Gary Chambers said he feared the worst after the back rower left for hospital immediately after the game.
Laithwaite, who made his Wolves debut at Hull KR last month, said on Twitter: "Absolutely gutted, this is all I need".
