Former Footballer of the Year Bernard Brogan has not had any setbacks as he tries to recover from a cruciate ligament injury in time to play a role in Dublin's drive for a fourth All-Ireland title in a row.

The 34-year-old five-time All-Ireland winner is midway through his rehabilitation from an unfortunate injury he suffered during a shooting drill at a training session in early February.

Speaking on the Throw-In, Independent.ie's GAA podcast, Alan Brogan described how the next few weeks will be crucial if Bernard is to return to Jim Gavin's plans.

"He's in the gym. He's doing his rehab. He probably has another six or seven weeks before he can make a decision on it, whether he's able to come back or not," he said.

"He's just going through the process now and that's all you can do. He's working as hard as he can.

"Hopefully he makes it back but it might end up being a little bit tight and the fact that the All-Irelasnd final is moved back to the start of September doesn't do him any favours

"It won't be for the want of trying anyway."

Alan has suggested that Bernard will not retire from his decorated career due to injury.

"I don't think so. After 13 or 14 years, I think he's like to play to finish out," he added.

"If injury doesn't allow him to get back, hopefully we see him back next year but I haven't spoken to him a huge amount about it.

"He's still in the early days or halfway through his rehab so he probably doesn't know himself yet where he's at. All you can do is take each session at a time.

"With an injury like that you can get a little complication at any stage that sets you back a couple weeks.

"He hasn't had any setbacks yet which is positive but it is difficult to know yet whether he'll make it back in time."

Bernard announced on Instagram last night that he and his wife Keira Doyle are expecting their first child together.
