Colm Cavanagh injury blow for Tyrone
Defending champions Tyrone have been dealt a blow with the news that Colm Cavanagh is likely to miss the entire McKenna Cup campaign with a wrist injury. It has come about as the result of a freak accident and the Moy clubman is disappointed that he is going to be on the sidelines.
"I was kicking ball about around home a couple of weeks ago with a few lads and I was in goals and I saved a shot but my wrist bent backwards," said Cavanagh.
"At the time I didn't think it was that bad but then it began to get sore and I went for an X-ray which showed up nothing. It didn't get better so I went to Belfast for an MRI scan, which showed that I have picked up a small fracture."
