There's talk that Manly may be without halfback Daly Cherry-Evans this weekend, with rumours that the skipper will miss the clash with the Cowboys.
According to Triple M and the Australian's Brent Read, DCE is nursing a hamstring injury, and is no certainty to play.
"There are some murmurs about Daly, and that he may miss the game due to a hamstring problem," Ready said.
"It's only a whisper at this stage but that's what we're hearing."
His likely replacement would be Jackson Hastings, who has been named as the 18th man.
