Australia, Queensland and North Queensland great Matt Scott is recovering in hospital after suffering a mild stroke on Sunday.
The Cowboys issued a statement on Tuesday saying doctors were confident the medical episode suffered by the 268-game veteran was unrelated to football.
Scott is in hospital in Brisbane with doctors initially saying they expect him to make a full recovery.
Scott, who previously announced he would retire at the end of the 2019 season, played 22 matches for both Queensland and Australia.
