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.
