A mysterious knee injury will add further delays to Rory Thompson's AFL return for Gold Coast.

The talented fullback missed last season with an ACL tear and had hoped to feature once the league resumed this month.

But nagging soreness in his other knee has forced him in for scans this week, a rare dilemma for a high-flying Suns side eyeing off three-straight wins when they meet Fremantle this Saturday.
