Newcastle star Darius Boyd has checked out of a Sydney mental health facility following treatment for depression but won't play again this NRL season.

The Knights confirmed on Thursday that the Queensland State of Origin winger was released from the facility after being admitted three weeks ago.

"Darius Boyd has completed his rehabilitation program for depression in a Sydney mental health facility," a statement from the Knights read.

"Boyd won't return to playing this season as he continues to focus on his recovery.

"Boyd wishes to thank the club, his teammates and the fans for their support at this time."

Boyd is off contract at the Knights and, with his long-term mentor Wayne Bennett to return to coach Brisbane next season, speculation is rife the 204-game two-time premiership winner will move back north with him.

The Knights said in the statement Boyd was yet to make a decision on where he would play next year.
