Red Devils forward Mark Flanagan will miss the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury.
Ian Watson and the Salford medical staff were hopeful that Flanagan may return at some point in the Super 8s however they have now confirmed this won’t be possible.
Flanagan, sponsored by Arighi Bianchi, said: “Of course, it’s massively disappointing to miss the rest of the season.
“We’re at the most important part of the season as we try and push for a position in the Super League semi-finals and it’s gutting not to be a part of that.
“I’d been hopeful I might be able to come back towards the back end of the Super 8s but realistically I need to rest and recover.
“I have no doubts that the boys will step up in the coming weeks and put the performances in to give us a chance at making it to Old Trafford in October.
“As for me, I’m going to recover from this injury and as soon as I’m fully fit I’ll be working hard to come back fitter and stronger ahead of the 2018 season.”
