North Queensland Cowboys co-captain Matt Scott could miss the rest of the 2017 NRL season after it was confirmed he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in last week's dramatic victory over Brisbane Broncos.

The Cowboys triumphed in golden point on Friday thanks to a Johnathan Thurston drop goal, but Scott had left the field by the time the match was won, after being injured in the second half.

A club statement on Monday revealed Scott, who is out of contract at the end of the season, faces a lengthy lay-off.


"It's obviously a huge blow for Matt and he's understandably devastated," said Cowboys coach Paul Green.

"He'll have surgery then start his rehab, and knowing the type of player and person he is, he'll approach his recovery in the same dedicated way he trains and plays … with 100 per cent commitment."

The Cowboys' win over the Broncos came at a heavy cost, with backs Lachlan Coote (torn calf) and Antonio Winterstein (broken arm) also sustaining significant injuries.
