Dwyer initially thought he'd suffered deep bruising after taking a knock against the Northern Blues three weeks ago.
But an X-ray on Monday revealed a break to his left fibula.
The injury is likely to keep him out for the rest of the season.
Dwyer will visit a surgeon tomorrow (Thursday) and is clinging to the hope of surgery.
Even then the best-case scenario is a four-week spell on the sidelines.
"I went and got an MRI and that said there was no break, just a bad corkie and bone brusing," Dwyer said.
"But it wasn't getting any better so I saw a sports doctor on Monday and he had a look at the MRI and thought there might have been a break there."
