CLUB | Injury Blow for McNabb

Tyrone defender Ronan McNabb’s knee injury is worse than was first feared with the news that he has damaged his cruciate ligament. The Dromore man sustained the injury at club training on Friday night and at first it was thought that he had dislocated his knee.

A scan in Belfast earlier this week though revealed that he has suffered a partial tear of his ACL and while he could conceivably play on, the worst case scenario is that he may require surgery and if that is the case he could miss a huge chunk of next season.

It’s a devastating blow to the player first and foremost as he was one of Tyrone’s most consistent performers throughout the summer as they recovered from losing in the preliminary round of the Ulster championship to reach the All-Ireland semi-finals via the qualifiers before losing narrowly to reigning champions Kerry.

McNabb had been training in preparation for Sunday’s massive Tyrone club championship quarter final with Omagh and the reigning champions are set to be without a County player as well.

Joe McMahon had a minor operation prior to the Kerry game for an injury that he sustained whilst kicking a left footed point in the opening minutes of Tyrone’s quarter final win over Monaghan at Croke Park. The operation though revealed an underlying problem and he hasn’t trained since with fears growing that his season could be over.
