Brisbane defender Harris Andrews will be re-assessed in two weeks’ time after the club confirmed he had a small bleed on the brain after suffering a severe concussion in Saturday’s loss to GWS.
During the opening minutes of the game, Andrews was running back with the flight of the ball before being collected by Giants forward Jeremy Cameron, and the young Lion was sent to hospital on Saturday night after spending the remainder of the game watching on from the bench.
Andrews was released from hospital on Sunday night, and the neurosurgeon will re-assess Andrews’ health in two weeks’ time.

“He will have a follow-up scan in two weeks’ time, when we will know more.”
