The former Origin centre was rushed to hospital after a training mishap this morning.

Cronulla Sharks star Josh Dugan has been cleared of injury after the former Origin centre was rushed to hospital due to a training mishap this morning.

Dugan was injured in a contact drill and was picked up by an ambulance from the team’s training facilities fearing damage to his neck.

Tests in hospital have cleared the 30-year-old centre of serious injury.

“It was more a precautionary measure,” media spokesman Rob Willis told News Corp.

“He got a heavy knock to the neck/shoulder area. They were just very cautious and didn’t want to take any risks.”

Dugan is in the final year of his $900,000 contract with the Sharks, and faces a fight to stay at Sharks beyond this season.

Dugan, Shaun Johnson, Matt Moylan and Aaron Woods are all off contract at Cronulla after this year.

The former NSW and Australian star last year rejected reports he was close to being medically retired by the club.

He is expected to be available for round one of the NRL season.
