Galway face wait on Meehan update

Galway won't know the full extent of the damage to Michael Meehan's knee until tomorrow at the earliest, WRITES COLM KEYS.

Galway's most talented forward was not able to secure an MRI scan yesterday to assess the damage and one had been slated for this morning instead.

Meehan was carried off 20 minutes into Galway's defeat to Kerry which places them in serious relegation peril with games against Tyrone, Dublin and Derry to come.

He had just scored a punched goal to enhance Galway's lead when he landed awkwardly, fuelling fears that he damaged his cruciate ligament.

The Navan O'Mahony's full-back underwent surgery on a back complaint before Christmas and the injury has been slow to settle.

Forward David Bray limped off in stoppage-time at the end of last Sunday's defeat against Tipperary and a knee injury will be assessed by medics tomorrow.
