I think he's been playing injured for a while now.
would not doubt that.
His impact in games has been spotty at best.
Given the attention drawn to Brain damage impact the Nrl really should get a lot tougher about letting players on the field with inuries of any kind.

As an aside I noticed in the weekend paper one ex player is allegedly trying to hit up his old club for around $15K for some dental work.
Anyone know who it would be and how long retired he has been?.

We may have to retire him ... Southy southsport Archie Archie ... ;)
Graham plays the game too hard for his own good and sets the bar other forwards should chase , tackle and run the ball at.
He has however been getting more than a few head knocks which isn't good.
He perhaps should reassess and look at returning home to softer fields and looking after his health.

Towering teenage Dragons winger Jason Saab says he is ahead of schedule after off-season shoulder surgery.

Saab impressed as he scored three tries in three NRL games this year before going under the knife in August to repair a labral tear and stabilise his shoulder.

The 199cm 19-year-old also suffered bone bruising in his foot that continues to be monitored, with Saab on lighter duties in pre-season training.

"The shoulder's really well, it's ahead of where it should be on schedule, so that's gone really well, no worries with that," Saab told dragons.com.au.
"With the foot, it's a bit more of a process. It's all about load management and not overusing it. You don't want it to happen again because it could be another long rehab.

"It's more about just progressing slowly and making sure it's 100% before I get into the season."

Korbin Sims suffering a re-fracture of the forearm he injured last season (a complete fracture of the ulna (forearm bone), required surgery & 7 weeks return to play). Best case scenario is a 4 week recovery, but more likely 6-10 weeks.

Matt Dufty - fractured cheek bone.

St George Illawarra head of athletic performance Nathan Pickworth has provided injury updates on Cameron McInnes, Korbin Sims and Matt Dufty following the Dragons' NRL Perth Nines campaign.

"Unfortunately Cameron has suffered a medial collateral injury to his left knee. When we return home, he'll be undergoing scans to confirm the severity of the injury," Pickworth said.

"Matt has a cheekbone fracture. Matt will require surgery to stabilise the fracture. We will be consulting with specialists when we return home to determine the best course of action. Matt will be travelling home to Sydney with the team on Sunday.

"Korbin has a suspected fractured forearm. He will have scans upon returning home to determine the specific diagnosis of the injury."

Further updates on all three injury matters in due course.
