The Hot Breakfast's football reporter Tom Browne has told Triple M that the Bombers have suffered an injury blow before their first game against Adelaide.
"I can tell you a new injury development at the Bombers - it concerns Patrick Ambrose," Browne reported.
"I understand he's broken his scaphoid, which is the big bone underneath your thumb. He broke it on Friday at training and he'll miss between 2 and 4 weeks.
"Usually in their best 22."
Browne also provided updates on Darcy Parish, David Myers and Tex Walker on the show this morning.
