Mayo’s Keith Higgins has been ruled out for at least three more weeks after injuring his hamstring during their 1-14 to 1-12 defeat to Donegal at the weekend.

He has been ruled out of the upcoming matches against Monaghan and Kerry, although a scan later this week is expected to rule him out for an even longer period.

The Ballyhaunis man didn’t start Mayo’s opening two league games due to a knee injury sustained against Roscommon in the Connacht League.
