The Scotland international had to be helped off the pitch after suffering the problem in the 23rd minute of the Robins’ 34-26 pre-season win at Hull FC on Sunday.
The club confirmed the former Bradford Bulls player would be “out long term with a complex knee injury” following scans on Monday, just two weeks before their Super League return against Wakefield.
.@dannyaddy32 has been ruled out long-term with a complex knee injury. At this stage we expect the @scotlandrl international to miss the full 2018 season. Best wishes from everybody at the club to Danny for a full and speedy recovery. https://t.co/x43cgmNxkN pic.twitter.com/BEF9WSB0J1— Hull Kingston Rovers (@hullkrofficial) January 16, 2018
