Kevin Reilly will return to action for Meath in Sunday's Leinster SFC quarter-final against Laois, in the only change to the side that beat Offaly last time out.
Reilly will make his first competitive start for the Royals in more than a year, having been plagued by back problems.
The Navan O'Mahony's clubman last started in Meath's 2009 loss to Dublin, and has make a full return to training in the past fortnight.
Reilly's inclusion at full-back means a rejigged Meath defence for the Croke Park clash (throw-in 2pm).
Anthony Moyles moves to centre-back, and Gary O'Brien, who was seeking his second Championship start, drops to the bench. Cormac McGuinness is again in reserve after suffering a hamstring complaint.
Meanwhile, Mark Ward has been retained at midfield ahead of Brian Meade, and captain Nigel Crawford will start having recovered from a back injury which forced him to sit out training last weekend.
MEATH (SFC v Laois): P O'Rourke; C O'Connor, K Reilly, E Harrington; M Burke, A Moyles, C King; N Crawford, M Ward; S Kenny, J Sheridan, G Reilly; C Ward, S O'Rourke, S Bray.
