Cork hurling manager Denis Walsh has said he will make a judgement call on Ronan Curran this week, with the defender currently nursing a knee injury.
Cork are set to face Tipperary in a crunch Munster SHC tie on Sunday, May 29, but Walsh says that he will only include Curran in his plans if the St Finbarr's clubman can prove his fitness before this weekend.
"Ronan has a knee injury and we won't know until later in the week (if he will be available)," explained Walsh at tonight's Munster GAA Senior Championships launch.
"We will just give him a run-out and see if there is a reaction to it."
Defender Curran got scans on his knee which revealed that he had suffered torn ligaments.
Walsh added: "He has had a scan, he has an injury. We won't leave it until next week. We will try it out this week and if he can't go on it he won't be going.
"We will make sure that he is ready for the next game.
"It's disappointing for him now to be honest because he has been working very hard over the last few months, but unfortunately these things happen."
