Turner was tackled by Cronulla Sharks captain Paul Gallen in the fourth minute of the game and was later admitted to Gold Coast University hospital for treatment, according to the Gold Coast Bulletin.
The 22-year-old’s mother Leanne took to Facebook to provide an update on her son’s condition.
“As a parent you try to prepare yourself for whatever may come seeing your son live his dream but it’s heartbreaking to see him get injured,” she wrote according to News Corp.
“Kye is … awaiting the MRI results, CT scan reveal he has a protruding disc on his spine and has pain, pins and needles in his arms and hands.
“He will be out indefinitely, we are worried sick.”
According to News Corp reports, Turner was discharged from hospital and is currently awaiting results from scans.
Gallen was placed on report for the tackle on Turner, but the NRL Match Review Committee issued no charge.
