South Sydney insist there is nothing wrong with Greg Inglis despite the fullback being in obvious discomfort at the Rabbitohs' recovery session on Sunday.
Inglis was wearing a compression bandage on his lower left leg and struggled to make his way down the stairs at an Alexandria gym where Souths had a pool session.
A Souths official said there was no issue with Inglis when quizzed about the star favouring his left leg.
Inglis played the full 80 minutes of Saturday night's 38-16 NRL win over Canberra but was attended to late in the game by a trainer after suffering a leg injury in a tackle.
The Rabbitohs are already battling to put their strongest team on the park for Saturday night's grand final qualifier against Canterbury at ANZ Stadium with tryscoring freak Nathan Merritt's return to the side in the air.
Merritt missed the Raiders clash with a shoulder injury, ruling himself out the night before the match.
Souths prop Sam Burgess praised Merritt for making a decision in the best interests of the team and also gave replacement wing three-quarter Justin Hunt a wrap for his performance.
"Nathan made a big call to withdraw himself. It was very honest of him to do that and he did the right thing. He's a class player and everyone knows what he can do," Burgess said.
"I thought Justin on the wing did a great job as well last night and we'll just see which way the team goes this week."
