By John Fogarty

Richie Hogan is the latest injury scare for Kilkenny ahead of Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final.

The 2014 hurler of the year is understood to have injured his back and is considered more of a worry than a doubt ahead of facing Waterford.

Full-back Joey Holden is also reported to have hurt his back but is expected to be fit, as is TJ Reid who is believed to have picked up a toe injury.

Kilkenny are already without Jackie Tyrrell for the game following a recent operation after suffering a stress fracture of the foot.
