Canberra Raiders centre Blake Ferguson has been released from hospital after he was admitted on Monday night with a skin infection.

The 22-year-old Country representative suffered a cut to his ankle and will rest at home for the rest of the week.

''First injection done for the day! :( would so much rather be training with the boys and getting flogged! :( #hateit,'' Ferguson tweeted on Tuesday.

The Raiders complete their final training session of the year on Friday before the Christmas break.

The Raiders return to training on January 3.
