Dublin Have Some Injury Worries Ahead Of The All Ireland Final

The Dublin camp may be on a high after their win over Mayo but it's back down to earth this weeks as thoughts turn to the All Ireland final against Kerry. Injury worries look set to play a part in that build up with news emerging that Cian O'Sullivan could be a doubt for selection on September 20th.

The Kilmacud Crokes man was seen limping off Croke Park after their semi-final win at the weekend with what was assumed to be cramp. However, according to the Irish Independent, that prognosis has since been reassessed and O'Sullivan faces a race against time if he is to overcome a hamstring injury before the All Ireland final.

He may not be the most heralded of Dublin starters but O'Sullivan's versatility is something which Jim Gavin has been known to rely on. Few other players on the Dublin panel boast the same collection of attributes and his absence from the team could leave a significant hole in Dublin's defence for their second All-Ireland final meeting with Kerry in five years.

Johnny Cooper is also an injury doubt after he was substituted due to a hip injury although he is thought to be a minor concern and should be fit to play.
