Reynolds was due to miss the next two games after receiving a ban for a dangerous throw on Penrith full-back Matt Moylan during Canterbury’s 24-18 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.
According to the Bulldogs, The New South Wales State or Origin star underwent scans on Tuesday morning, with the injury revealed to be more serious than first thought.
Scans revealed a fracture in Reynolds’s right arm, with the 25-year-old now expected to miss between six and eight weeks.
Reynolds’ injury – combined with his poor performance – puts his State of Origin chances in doubt, with the opener set to be played on May 27.
