John's Injured.... AGAIN!!!

Is this the last season we'll see from him?

Andrew Johns has suffered yet another injury setback, picking up a neck injury which has ruled him out of Newcastle's clash with Melbourne on Saturday and again raised doubts about his rugby league future.

The superstar halfback first injured his neck in Monday night's loss to the Raiders in Canberra before sustaining another knock in training on Thursday night.

While the 32-year-old won't know the extent of the damage until he has scans on Tuesday, it is the second time Johns has injured his neck.

He was diagnosed with a protruding disc in August, 2003 which ruled him out for the rest of that season.

Johns has consulted spinal specialist Dr John Yeo, who also helped the former Test and Origin great back in 2003, who told him he will likely have to sit out for at least a fortnight.

"It's not like the injury of four years ago," Johns told Channel Nine on Friday.

"I jarred it last week versus the Raiders and then last night training in Newcastle I had a bad collision with a couple of guys and came down today and saw Professor Yeo who pulled me out of tomorrow's game.

"I'll probably miss a couple of weeks, but I'll know more Tuesday. I'll have scans then and get the results."

Johns has had a long list of injury problems and only returned against Canberra following a serious bout of concussion sustained in the opening minutes of the Knights' round one win over the Bulldogs.

But he insisted it was too soon to speculate on his playing future.

"I think that's a bit premature. Obviously there's going to be some hysteria over this, but I'll wait till I get the scans back and I'll know more then," he said.

"I'm confident I'll be back on the field.

"I've got no pins and needles or pain in my arm, like last time.

"But I knew it was more than just a knock so I've come down here to see Professor Yeo and he wants to be totally sure and get a cat scan.

"So he pulled me out, which is disappointing I was desperate to play tomorrow night, but I'm in good hands with the doctor."

John's Injured.... AGAIN!!!

I think the NRL will lose both Menzies and Johns come seasons end. It will be a shame for 'Beaver' if that is to happen because Johns retiring will take the gloss of Beaver's retirement. Not for me though
