Cork manager Conor Counihan is confident that captain Graham Canty will be fit to play in the All-Ireland SFC final against Down on September 19.
Canty has been struggling with a hamstring injury, but is expected to lead the team out for the title decider.
"Yeah we'd be fairly optimistic on Canty," Counihan said.
He is also optimistic about the chances of injury concerns Fintan Goold and Anthony Lynch being fit.
The manager added: "Fintan seems to be going in the right direction as well and we'll know more about Anthony at the weekend."
