Handre Pollard has suffered yet another injury blow with the Bulls confirming that the Springbok flyhalf has damaged his right ankle.
The injury to his syndesmosis joint occurred during a training session early on Thursday morning.
He is expected to sit on the sidelines for between 8 to 10 weeks.
The Bulls have confirmed that Pollard will visit a specialist regarding a surgical procedure that will be performed to correct the injury.
Pollard missed the 2016 season after rupturing knee ligaments.
