Earley's knee to be scanned
Kildare midfielder Dermot Earley is to undergo an MRI scan to determine the extent of the damage to his right knee.
Earley damaged the knee in the very first minute of his side's All-Ireland quarter-final win over Meat last Sunday. But manager Kieran McGeeney remains hopeful that he can still play a part in the semi-final clash with Down on August 29.
"It remains to be seen if there is damage to the medial ligament. If he's ruled out, he'll be an obvious loss," said McGeeney.
