Tipperary manager Liam Kearns has confirmed that the injury Michael Quinlivan suffered in the defeat to Cork on Saturday will only rule him out in the short-term

A CT scan has revealed that nothing was broken when he fell awkwardly on his ankle after colliding in the air with Cork's Ruairi Deane.

It is expected the Tipp All-Star forward will play a part in the qualifiers, but may miss the first round as he recovers from ligament damage.
