Mullen out for four weeks

4:19 pm on 14 July 2009

Newcastle's NRL finals aspirations have been boosted with the news that halfback Jarrod Mullen's knee injury is not as serious as first feared.

Scans have revealed the 22-year-old playmaker tore the anterior ligament in his left knee in the early stages of the Knights' 23-4 win over Canberra on Saturday.

But Mullen is confident he will be back playing within four weeks as long as he doesn't make the mistake of coming back too soon.
