Canterbury outside-back Marcelo Montoya has been ruled out for up to three months with a hamstring injury.
The 24-year-old suffered a grade two hamstring tear during training last week which will see him sidelined for eight to 12 weeks.
Montoya has scored 16 tries in 45 appearances for the Bulldogs since making his NRL debut back in 2017. He has earned eight caps for his native Fiji.
Meanwhile, Canterbury forward Joe Stimson underwent the second stage of surgery to his shoulder last week.
Stimson had a posterior shoulder reconstruction following an anterior repair a fortnight ago.
Bulldogs forward Chris Smith will return to full training in a week’s time with a return to play date pencilled in for round five.
