Dublin manager Jim Gavin expects defender Cian O'Sullivan to recover from a hamstring injury in time to play the All-Ireland final against Tyrone on 2 September.
The Kilmacud Crokes' clubman was taken off during Saturday's 1-24 to 2-12 All-Ireland semi-final victory over Galway at Croke Park "as a precaution", but a medical assessment earlier this week proved positive.
"Yeah, it's good news," Gavin told the Irish Examiner at Dublin’s pre-game press night in Parnell Park.
"You get the normal bumps and bruises that you would associate with a championship game, but we are healthy, which is great."
Gavin says O'Sullivan, one of only three players to start all five of Dublin's All-Ireland finals since 2011 alongside Stephen Cluxton and James McCarthy, will return to training next week.
"He is a very experienced player and I have been fortunate to work with him through a lot of it," Gavin continued.
"There are a group of players with that experience and it is important going into games like this that we can trade off that.”
Dublin have no other injury concerns ahead of the All-Ireland Final, but Gavin says the form of Paul Flynn, Cormac Costello and Kevin McManamon from the bench has given him a selection headache.
"It's always a challenge,' he continued.
"We're fortunate that we’ve a group of players that are doing their best for their team, and have shown incredible attitude and incredible energy in the sessions that we have with them.
"They're all vying for game-time and for squad time.
"That's the great thing about them that they drive each other along so hard."
