Dublin have played down fears over the fitness of Jack McCaffrey after the in-form defender picked up a hand injury last weekend.

Reports had indicated that McCaffrey had broken his thumb, but this apparently is not case and the Clontarf native is expected to train with the Dublin squad on Thursday night.

The performances of McCaffrey so far this summer have him well placed to receive an All Star in the autumn and his goal against Cork in the All-Ireland quarter-final was a superb effort.

Dublin play Kerry in the last four of the Championship on Sunday, 1 September.
