Earlier today, reports emerged that Tipperary selector Shane Stapleton had been taken to hospital following an incident during his side's Division Two clash with Clare.
Stapelton was reported to have been knocked over and suffered a blow to his head which ultimately led to him requiring an ambulance. However, in a positive update, it seems he will return to sidelines shortly and is now being kept in overnight for observation.

Cusack Park eyewitnesses said that the incident which knocked Stapleton allegedly involving Clare's Jamie Malone was accidental. He did, however, receive a red card.
As for the game, a late Keelan Sexton free ensured the sides would share the points as the final score was 0-11 to 0-11.
Tipperary are not back in action until the 24 February, when they welcome Meath to Semple Stadium while Clare face Down the day after.
