Warrington Wolves player Paul Wood ruptured one of his testicles during a rugby match on Saturday and had to have surgery to remove it.
Wood took a knee to the groin only one minute into the second half of the team's defeat to the Leeds Rhinos in the Grand Final.
Wood told BBC Radio Manchester, "I'm not too bad, it sounds worse than it is.
"An accidental knee caught me. I could feel I wasn't right, but I managed to stay on for 20 minutes until [the coach] Tony [Smith] took me off."
Wood also said that his teammates have been giving him some good natured ribbing about the whole ordeal, saying, "They're relentless really, they absolutely give it to me. I've had every text message under the sun to wind me up - but I can take what's happened."
