Blow for Kerry as Sheehan out for five weeks

All Star Kerry midfielder Bryan Sheehan has been ruled out of action for five weeks, meaning he could miss the Munster final if the Kingdom get there.

The St Mary’s clubman misses Sunday’s provincial semi-final against Cork after he aggravated a knee injury in the first round win over Tipperary and it has since emerged he is set for five weeks on the sidelines after damaging the patella tendon in his knee.

Depending on how he responds to treatment, a Kerry source has confirmed he faces up to five weeks out, which would put him in doubt for the Munster final on July 8.

Sheehan’s spell on the sidelines is a massive blow to the Munsterchampions, who are short of midfield options already, with Anthony Maher to be partnered by Seamus Scanlon against Cork this Sunday.
