Josh van der Flier has been ruled out of Ireland's final Guinness Six Nations games against Wales.
Van der Flier was forced off after 24 minutes of last weekend's win over France after sustaining a groin injury and he has been released back to Leinster ahead of the game in Cardiff.
Rob Kearney was a late withdrawal from the France game after reporting tightness in his calf but he is due to train on Tuesday, while Dan Leavy has joined up with the squad after overcoming a calf injury.
Joey Carbery missed the games against Italy and France due to a hamstring problem but he is expected to take full part in Tuesday's session and is likely to be named in the matchday 23 when it is announced on Thursday.
"Rob and Joey Carbery, we’ll see how they go this afternoon. They’re getting their boots on and we’ll have a light run around," Ireland scrum coach Greg Feek revealed.
“At the moment, they’re ready to rock and roll. It was a precautionary thing for Rob last week so we’re hoping that he’s fine but again he’s the best judge of that at the end of the day. Getting out there with the boots on will be the key factor.”
Tadhg Beirne did not feature against France after reporting soreness but Feek has confirmed he is looking good ahead of the weekend's game.
“Tadhg is looking pretty good as well. He’s got his hand up for selection and he’ll train again today," Feek added.
