Lyon was injured while fielding on the opening day of a three-day trial game at Hurstville Oval, as per Cricket NSW. He bowled 20 overs and took a wicket after giving 79 runs.

As a precaution, Lyon has withdrawn from the three-day game but is expected to be available for their opening Sheffield Shield match against Victoria on October 27 at Drummoyne Oval.
