Premiership-winning Penrith forward Moses Leota is set to miss between eight and 10 weeks of football due to a shoulder injury.

The 26-year-old suffered a fracture in his left shoulder while making a tackle late in the 28-6 win over Manly.

The Weekender’s Peter Lang revealed over the weekend on Twitter that the injury was worse than originally expected.

Panthers has confirmed the affected area is the shoulder socket component of the scapula, which means Leota will commence a rehabilitation program and be sidelined for eight to 10 weeks.
