Newcastle Jets’ Ben Faelder has been cleared by medical staff of concussion and is now fit to play, according to his agent.
Newcastle Jets captain Scott Faaldt, pictured with his wife, is also cleared of the concussion.
“Ben has been clear that he is fit and the protocol is now to get back out on the field as soon as possible,” his agent Michael Pallas said.
The Jets have lost their opening round match against the Melbourne Storm and are now set to play the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday night.
The injury news comes as Ben Faalde was cleared of an alleged assault on his partner on Sunday night.
Ben Faelde is currently out of the Jets squad after being taken to hospital for treatment.
In a statement, the NRL said it would investigate the incident and make a decision on whether to take any action against Faelda.
However, Pallas told AAP: “I am hoping this will be a light hearted incident that is dealt with quickly.
Ben will be back in the next couple of days and he is looking forward to the game.”
New South Wales police said on Monday they had received a report of an assault and were investigating.
A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said the incident took place in a car park in Wollongong, south-east of Newcastle.
There was no immediate comment from the NRL.
