McCann blow for Tyrone


Tiernan McCann will play no further part in Tyrone's Allianz Football League campaign due to a knee injury.

McCann was injured deep into injury time of the Red Hands' Division 1 win over Kildare on Sunday and underwent a scan on Monday to determine the extent of the problem.

Scans confirmed the Killyclogher defender sustained a cracked kneecap which will keep him out of action for up to two months, ruling him out of the remainder of the Allianz League.

"The scan revealed that he has a crack to his kneecap and he is definitely out for the rest of the league," Tyrone manager Mickey Harte told The Irish News.

"The best-case scenario is that he will be out for at least six to eight weeks and it's awful news to hear. First of all for Tiernan himself as he has contracts to fulfil with his work so that is going to have a major impact.

"He has worked so hard to get back to full fitness after his hand injury last season and he is very unlucky for this to happen just as he was back to that level he wanted to be at. It goes without saying that it is a major blow for Tyrone as he is a serious, serious operator for us, one of our key players.

"It takes the shine out of our win on Sunday but, as I said earlier, it's a bigger blow to Tiernan personally."
