Canberra have added another body to their growing casualty ward, with centre Michael Oldfield out for up to three weeks with a hamstring injury.
Oldfield limped from the field early in the second half of the Raiders' upset win over the Sydney Roosters, in the only major dampener of their night.
His injury could likely mean a recall for Curtis Scott in the centres against South Sydney next Saturday, provided he is fit to overcome an infection in his arm suffered on match eve this week.
The high-profile Melbourne Storm recruit was dropped from the Raiders' backline and onto the bench two weeks ago, before falling out of their 17 altogether last week.
Another option would be to elevate rookie Fijian Semi Valemei into their starting team, but that would likely require someone to play out of position.
It comes after Canberra lost winger Bailey Simonnson for the year with a shoulder injury in last week's win over Melbourne.
But their backline is the least of their concerns.
Josh Hodgson, Sia Soliola, John Bateman, Emre Guler and Corey Horsburgh are all missing from their pack long-term, stretching their middle to the absolute limits.
