Kerry: O'Donoghue injury not bad
04 Aug 2015 11:11
James O’Donoghue did not sustain a serious injury in yesterday’s All Ireland SFC quarter-final against Kildare, x-ray results have revealed.

The 2014 Footballer of the Year left the field holding his right arm following an innocuous clash with 'keeper Mark Donnelly during the 7-16 to 0-10 win at Croke Park.
-
This raised concerns in Kerry that he had antagonised an old injury and was a doubt for the remainder of the Championship. O'Donoghue had surgery on his right shoulder at the beginning of the year and missed the 2015 Allianz League campaign as a result.
-
However, Kerry GAA today moved to allay those fears, with test results revealing that ‘there was no serious injury sustained.’
-
The full statement read: "James O’Donoghue injured his shoulder when he fell following a tackle by the goalkeeper in yesterday’s All Ireland Football Quarter final tie with Kildare. The Kerry Medical Team immediately realigned the shoulder and an X-Ray afterwards showed that there was no serious injury sustained. He will have a routine MRI Scan and will rest for a few days before beginning rehab and a graduated return to action."
-
It is now hoped he will be fit for Kerry's All Ireland semi-final against Monaghan or Tyrone.
