Mayo midfielder Tom Parsons is highly unlikely to feature for Stephen Rochford's side again this season after he suffered a suspected dislocated knee in their Connacht SFC quarter final defeat to Galway.
The midfielder collided accidentally with Galway player Eoghan Kerin in the second half of the Tribesmen's 1-12 to 0-12 win and his leg buckled underneath him.
He was attended to on the field and was stretchered off after an eight-minute stoppage.
Mayo and Galway meet today in what I can best describe as a proper championship match that could decorate Croke Park in August in a quarter or semi-final. Two teams who have ambitions - the first is to win today but the real bonus is to make the Super 8. Then the real fun begins.
