Nemo Rangers manager Larry Kavanagh is confident that Paul Kerrigan will be fit for next February's All-Ireland club SFC semi-final against Slaughtneil.
The Cork star was forced to retire with a leg injury in the closing stages of yesterday's Munster final victory over All-Ireland champions Dr Crokes at Pairc Ui Rinn.
"Paul thinks it's not too bad," Kavanagh explained to the Irish Examiner.
"He's thinks it's just jarred rather than a ligament issue, but we'll know soon. He's another player who could do with a break, so that'll help, too."
Kavanagh has vowed to give his players some time off before focusing on the Slaughtneil game.
"We'll take a couple of weeks's break now. It's so long, the campaign, you're going nearly 12 months and you might need a different type of player, potentially, when you get to this time of the year anyway.
"The lads are so good to train I'm nearly asking them to take a break. They'll probably tip away and train themselves, but I want them to take a break from collective training anyway," he added.
