TOMAS Brady's season is over after he suffered a second cruciate ligament tear in just two years.
The Na Fianna man, who switched allegiances from the Dublin hurlers to the footballers this season, suffered the blow in training during the week and, following a scan, has been ruled out for the rest of the year.
Back in June 2011, Brady (right) ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament in his left knee during Dublin's Leinster SHC victory over Galway, although it is understood that this time, the injury is to his right knee.
Brady wasn't on the bench for Dublin's Leinster opener against Westmeath last weekend due to a slight thigh injury.
However, he was said to be pushing strongly for inclusion in Jim Gavin's match day squad for the Leinster semi-final clash with Kildare on June 30. He now faces yet another arduous rehabilitation.
