Roscommon youngster Ciaran Lennon has been ruled out for 'at least eight weeks' with a broken thumb.
Ian Cooney of the Roscommon Herald revealed the news of the Clann na nGael clubman's injury on Twitter yesterday:
Roacommon full-forward Ciaran Lennon out for at least 8 weeks with broken thumb. Another injury casualty for senior team. Huge blow to U-20 team. At least he'll probably miss no championship games with @ClannGAA #rosgaa- Ian Cooney (@cooney_ian) May 15, 2018
The 19-year-old will miss his county's Connacht SFC semi-final clash against Leitrim in Carrick-on-Shannon on Saturday week, as well as a potential final date with Galway or Sligo on June 17.
His absence represents a huge blow to Kevin McStay's side in their bid to retain the JJ Nestor Cup, and even more so for Shane Curran's U20's ahead of their upcoming championship campaign.
A regular at full-forward in his debut season with the seniors, Lennon joins a long list of players on the Roscommon treatment table at the moment, including his older brother Fergal, club-mate Ultan Harney and Niall Daly.
