Tipp set to be without Costigan
Tipperary defender Robbie Costigan could miss the entire 2011 season. It is understood he plans to spend the next year abroad.
But attacker Seamus Grogan has returned to the squad, having missed last year's championship due to work commitments.
And manager John Evans has said that he will keep the door open for dual stars Sean Carey and John Coghlan, should they fail to gain inclusion in the county's hurling squad for the defence of the All-Ireland title.
