Adam Reynolds pencils in Broncos return date

Brisbane skipper Adam Reynolds is targeting a round eight return against Wests Tigers as he battles back from a hamstring strain.

Reynolds left the field just before halftime in round five's 34-32 loss to Melbourne and will be replaced by Jock Madden against the Dolphins on Friday night.

The Broncos then host Canberra in round seven before an away trip to the Tigers in Campbelltown.

"I will probably miss the Canberra game and I'm touch and go for the Tigers, but it all depends on how it pulls up," Reynolds said on Tuesday.

"I'm feeling alright. I had a trot today at training. It felt pretty good although it wasn't very fast.

"It will be a couple of weeks. I will see how it feels in the morning then continue to work with the physios and go from there."

There were fears Reynolds, who has previously been hampered by a medial collateral ligament problem, had suffered a more serious injury when he left the field against Melbourne.

Vision of him showing his emotions in the dressing room against the Storm led onlookers to believe he had suffered a more serious injury.

"I was just frustrated," Reynolds said.

"When you get one injury, you come back and want to string a few games together.

"I felt it pretty early on in that game. I wanted to get through to halftime and see where it got to and how it felt.

"I felt it pretty bad towards the end of the first half and it was just frustration.

"There's nothing more to it. You want to be a part of those games in Melbourne.

"To know you won't be out there for the next 40 minutes, the frustration came out that way and I felt I had let the team down. "The knee was feeling good at the start of the game, so I didn't come back too early."

Reynolds has re-signed until the end of 2025 and said he was physically and mentally ready to honour the deal. "I am extremely confident. I wouldn't have signed it if I wasn't confident of seeing out my deal," Reynolds said.

"I am a team player. I never want to let the team down and I won't take the field unless I'm 100 per cent and willing to get the job done for the team.

"That attitude will stay right through until the end of my career."
