Hull FC star Kirk Yeaman ruled out for six weeks with broken thumb
HULL FC centre Kirk Yeaman has been ruled out for up to six weeks after scans revealed he broke his thumb in Friday night’s win over Castleford Tigers.
Yeaman injured his hand diving on a ball but played on for the remainder of the 52-0 victory.
The 29-year-old is in hospital today and will have surgery on the injury before beginning a rehabilitation process that is expected to take six weeks.
Yeaman has been an ever-present this year after recovering from a foot injury in the off-season which saw him miss the start of pre-season training.
