Tipperary boss Liam Sheedy has confirmed that Seamus Kennedy is ruled out of the All-Ireland champions’ Munster SHC opener next Sunday week.
Kennedy suffered damage to medial ligaments in his knee and will not be available for the Premier men’s showdown with either Limerick or Clare on November 1st.
“Seamus Kennedy at the moment is the one who’s probably not going to make it,” Sheedy is quoted saying by the42.ie.
“He’s in a brace. He gave his medial ligament a strain. He should be out of the brace before the game but he won’t be available at this stage for selection which is unfortunate.
“He won’t make it for the first piece of action but he shouldn’t be long after that before we have him back in the fray. It’s not a long-term injury, thankfully.”
There was positive news on attacker John ‘Bubbles’ Dwyer, who underwent foot surgery during the summer, with Sheedy stating: “Hopefully now over the next week or ten days we can fine-tune him again. But he’s made giant strides and it looks like he will be fit and available for selection for 1 November, all going well.”Tweet
