Manly backrower Anthony Watmough has played down suggestions he could miss Origin I with a neck injury.
Watmough eased fears that he could have a serious problem, tweeting: 'hey guys neck is fine just a burner'.
He had thrown a scare into the NSW State of Origin camp ahead of the Blues team selection when he left the field late in the Sea Eagles' victory over Brisbane Broncos on Friday.
Watmough later tweeted: "Hey guys neck is fine just a burner. Got all feeling back now so look forward to next week."
A Manly cub spokesman confirmed Watmough's description of the injury.
"He's suffered what medical staff have described as a 'burner' to his neck and while he's still sore, he is improving rapidly," she said.
"Anthony will undergo intense physiotherapy in the coming days and the club is confident he will be available to play next week."
Watmough had no feeling in his right arm and shoulder, after he was knocked senseless from a mammoth Alex Glenn hit in the back.
He then ricocheted into teammate Liam Foran, who was also smashed by Ben Te'o, before falling to the ground in agony.
Watmough refused to speak to the waiting media, but he complained of having no feeling down his right arm and Sea Eagles coach Geoff Toovey said that further monitoring on Saturday would reveal the full extent of the damage.
"He's got a bit of whiplash and nerve trouble down his right arm," Toovey said.
"It's a nerve thing, but it's coming good. It's one of those burners down the arm. It sets off the nerve a bit."
