Knights winger Edrick Lee is set to miss 10-12 weeks after suffering a broken arm in Newcastle's round 15 win over Brisbane.

Lee underwent surgery on a fractured radius on Sunday.
I was amazed Klem was back in 3 with a broken wrist.

Fitzgibbon - elbow
Meanwhile, Newcastle have received a blow with back-rower Lachlan Fitzgibbonruled out for at least five weeks after scans revealed ligament damage after he dislocated his elbow in the side's loss to the Warriors.

Fitzgibbon's elbow was caught awkwardly in a tackle attempt during the first half but the local junior played through the pain barrier and was cleared of a fracture.

He'll spent 3-4 weeks in a sling before being available in time for the Knights' final charge towards the finals.

James Gavet is facing a dangerous contact charge for his hit on Smith in the 62nd minute of the Bulldogs' come-from-behind 20-14 win at McDonald Jones Stadium.

He will avoid suspension if he takes an early plea and risks a one-match ban if he challenges the charge and is found guilty.
