The new signing clattered with advertising boards in their opening pre-season game against a Furness Select side.
The curtain raiser was called off after just half an hour and new manager Ian Evatt feared it could be serious.
Blyth has dislocated a shoulder but instead of missing months of the new season, it will be weeks.
That hasn’t stopped the Bluebirds boss adding to his forward line with Rhys Turner today joining.
“I went to visit him in the hospital and I have spoken to him every day since. It was the best news we could hope for in the circumstances really,” Evatt told the Barrow News & Mail.
“The way his arm was positioned, it looked like it was broken as well, but it was just the way the shoulder had dislocated. It is just the dislocated shoulder and a bit a of concussion to heal.
“It’s four to six weeks out, which isn’t ideal, but it could a hell of a lot worse. It’s not his legs either, so he will be able to play sooner.”
Barrow beat Carlisle United 3-1 last night as they prepare for their opening game with Havant & Waterlooville on August 4.
