Kilkenny Manager Brian Cody says Conor Fogartys injury isn’t as bad as first feared.
A scan on his ankle has come back clear but he did suffer heavy bruising.
The Erins Own man got a bang to the ankle early on in Kilkennys 2-23 to 2-22 win over Cork last weekend.
Lester Ryan came on for him early on in the game.
Speaking to KCLR Sport, Brian Cody said……
“Well Conor was a serious worry for us obviously when it happened, it was kind of a replica of what happened last year essentially, and you know it was a serious serious belt he got, and he got in the very very same spot as he got it last year , so we’d a real concern about Conor but thankfully the x-rays appear to be all clear.”
“Obviously you know he had a fracture last year in that leg and another one this year would have been very very serious for us, but you know thankfully the x-rays is clear and obviously there’s serious bruising and that but hopefully he wont be too long out of action.”
Kilkenny welcome Dublin to Nowlan Park this Sunday at 2 o clock for the last round of league games, they’re already through to the knock out stages.
