KEVIN BROWN has handed the Giants a timely piece of positive news after scans revealed the stand-off has not damaged his cruciate ligament.
The 24-year-old, left, suffered an injury to his left knee during the first half of Huddersfield’s Challenge Cup final defeat against Warrington Wolves at Wembley.
His medial ligament is damaged, and that will keep him on the sidelines for the rest of the season.
But with scans revealing there has been no further damage, it means Brown will not require surgery – unlike Danny Kirmond who was injured at St Helens two weeks ago and will undergo a major knee reconstruction on September 17 before embarking on a six-month rehabilitation programme – and he will be able to take part in pre-season training as normal.
“The news on Kev is as good as we could have hoped,” said Giants chief Nathan Brown.
“We won’t see him again this season, but at least we know there’s no cruciate ligament damage and that it’s nowhere near as bad as it is for Danny.”
