James Ryan is an injury concern for Ireland's final Guinness Six Nations match against England next Saturday.

The lock was removed from play for a head injury assessment in the 71st minute of Ireland's 27-24 win over Scotland in Murrayfield.

Ryan, 24, missed the round-two loss to France after suffering a head injury against Wales in the opening match. 

"James Ryan had a HIA check," head coach Andy Farrell told reporters after the game.

"We'll see. I don't know what the protocol has been like after the game but there was a check there. 

"Garry Ringrose was hanging on there with an ankle but they all seem in fine spirits anyway.

"There were a few walking wounded.

"To be fair to Johnny [Sexton], he was cramping in that last five or 10 minutes as well, to step up to the plate and kick a [winning] goal in that sort of state makes the three points even better." 

Asked about the injury, centre Ringrose said: "Just towards the end there I took a knock on [the ankle]. I was limping a bit, but it was one of those ones where you just grit your teeth and get on with it.

"It doesn’t present too badly now after with the doctors so I’ll just get some ice on it. We have the day off tomorrow, which is good on the recovery front and hopefully it’ll be okay." 

Ireland moved into second place in the table with the win today and welcome England, who beat France yesterday, to the Aviva Stadium on Saturday (4.45pm).
