Aches and strains in Mayo camp

Feeney picks up leg injury

MAYO defender Richie Feeney is expected to make a fairly quick recover after picking up nasty leg injury in the Mayo SFC clash last Sunday.
The Castlebar Mitchels clubman was taken off against Crossmolina when his leg swelled alarmingly after he received a kick in the shin. However, an x-ray revealed no break and the injury is a suspected burst blood vessel.
Feeney (28) should have recovered in time for Mayo’s upcoming All-Ireland SFC Qualifier on August 4/5 against one of Tipperary/Down, Kildare/Sligo, Laois/Meath or Kerry/Clare.
Ballina’s Evan Regan didn’t play for Ballina on Saturday evening after tweaking an existing hamstring injury while training with Mayo last week. However, Mayo selector Tom Prendergast told The Mayo News that he was ‘hopeful’ that Regan will be available for Mayo’s A v B trial game this weekend.
The news is less certain for Crossmolina’s Peadar Gardiner. He has been struggling to recover from a cracked bone in his foot and it is unclear when he will return to action.
Definitely out of consideration are Pat Harte (broken foot) and Aidan Campbell (hip injury). Breaffy’s Seamie O’Shea came on at half-time for his club on Sunday after recent groin injuries but showed no ill-effects. However, his brother Aidan suffered mild concussion and had to get stitches for a wound over his eye after an accidental collision against Davitts.
