Hull FC winger Matty Dawson-Jones has been ruled out for the season after suffering a serious knee injury in training.
The 28-year-old joined the Black and Whites in the close season from Leigh and scored on his debut in the 18-16 derby defeat to Hull KR.
But Dawson-Jones suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury as Hull prepared for Thursday night's home game with Castleford that means he will take no further part in Lee Radford's plans in 2019.
"Matty is done for the year. I had a really tough conversation today and I really feel for him," said head coach Radford.
"He needs to keep his head up, get his rehab right, and he'll come back stronger."
Dawson-Jones joins the likes of Albert Kelly, Chris Green and Josh Bowden on the injury list at the KCOM Stadium.
