The injury to Michael Jennings is nowhere near as bad as The Mole et al first speculated. And everyone can collectively breathe a huge sigh of fucking relief.

According to the Roosters:

… Medical Staff have this afternoon informed us that scans have today confirmed that centre Michael Jennings has sustained a tendon tear of the left lat dorsi.

Surgery is not required for the NSW Blues star however he is expected to be sidelined for 6 weeks, not the remainder of the 2014 Season as reported.

The speedster will now also unfortunately be unavailable for the Blues in Game III of the 2014 State of Origin Series at Suncorp Stadium, as they look to clean-sweep the Maroons.

Thank Christ.

This news means the Roosters will be without Jenko until round 20 against the Knights; or just three games as the Roosters still have two byes (including this weekend) and — as Twitter fiend Ryan “My Way Or The” Heighway just reliably pointed out — a game in which he would have missed thanks to Origin anyway.
