Cathal Sheridan must be the unluckiest player in Irish rugby at the moment.

The UL Bohemians scrumhalf Cathal Sheridan who completed his time with the province last May returned to the fold in a short-term capacity last week.

After making his debut in February 2013 against Edinburgh Rugby the Sligo-man made 35 Munster appearances and returned to the squad after signing a three-month contract.

Sheridan was not involved in the defeat to Leinster and was involved in AIL action for UL Bohs in the AIL instead.

Sheridan sustained a leg fracture in UL Bohs' win over Galwegians and is awaiting a specialist opinion.

In other injury news ahead of this weekend's Champions Cup clash with Top 14 champions Racing 92 in Paris, Keith Earls and Dave Kilcoyne will follow return to play protocols this week for concussions sustained in the clash with Leinster.

 Andrew Conway also continues to follow return to play protocols for concussion.

Players continuing to rehab include Jean Kleyn (ankle), Dave O'Callaghan (shoulder), Kevin O'Byrne (elbow), Sammy Arnold (knee), Mark Chisholm (concussion), Sean McCarthy (knee), Francis Saili (shoulder), Mike Sherry (back) and Dave Foley (elbow).
