The Raiders have suffered an injury blow to prop Junior Paulo, with the forward set for a lengthy stint on the sideline.

Paulo has a mid-foot sprain, which will keep him out of action for 8-10 weeks. He will not require surgery, but will be unable to run until his foot improves. 

Raiders halfback Sam Williams will be assessed this week to see if he is available for this weekend.
