Kennedy was handed a provisional suspension following after he was charged for the alleged possession and attempted use of banned performance enhancing substances.
He faces a two-year ban from the NRL if found guilty of the charges.
Waerea-Hargreaves says Kennedy was remaining “positive” and had the full support of his teammates.
“He is good, he is a close mate of mine and he has my full support,” Waerea-Hargreaves told AAP.
“I can’t comment too much about it but he is all good.
“He is training still and he is in good spirits.
“I’ve been in touch with him and his family, we have been mates since schooldays and he is going okay.
“He is a positive man and he is getting on with things and he is himself, so that is a good thing.”
The Roosters face the Raiders on Sunday at 3am (GMT).
