Cadogan left out for Rebels as Cavanagh faces lay-off

Cork football boss Peadar Healy has made four changes for Sunday's Allianz Football League round two trip to Ballyshannon including the omission of defender Eoin Cadogan from the match-day squad.
Cadogan picked up a heavy knock to the head in a collision with Mayo's Lee Keegan last Sunday and is left out in defence along with Kieran Histon, as Kevin Crowley and Kevin O'Driscoll get the nod to start. Brendan O'Connell starts in goal in place of Ken O'Halloran while there is one change in attack, Donal óg Hodnett replacing Luke Connolly.
Both Cork and 2012 All-Ireland champions Donegal opened their league campaigns with impressive wins, against Mayo and Down, and Rory Gallagher's side are marginal favourites to prevail on home soil.
In Tyrone, captain Sean Cavanagh (calf) and Peter Harte (ankle) will miss Tyrone's Division 2 clash with Galway on Sunday due to injury with Cavanagh not expected to return until late February.
Manager Mickey Harte makes four changes to his team for the Salthill trip with Niall Morgan taking the goalkeeper's shirt while Ronan McNamee returns at No 3.
Padraig McNulty comes in at midfield, while Darren McCurry starts at corner-forward. The Red Hands and the Tribesmen both won their opening-day ties, and look set to make a promotion push.
Cian O'Neill has made a total of four changes to his Kildare side for their Division 3 clash with Offaly in Newbridge on Sunday with Cian O'Donoghue, Ryan Houlihan, Kevin Feely and Eamonn Callaghan coming in for the Lilies.
Elsewhere, Mayo will name their team later today for the visit of Dublin with all eyes focused on the fitness of All-Star Keegan after he was taken off suffering from concussion last week.
