Richie Hogan is an injury concern for Kilkenny ahead of the All-Ireland SHC semi-final against Cork on Sunday this week.
Hogan picked up an ankle injury in training last week, and has been forced to sit out all sessions since then.
"It's a major worry for us that Richie can't train at the moment," said selector Martin Fogarty.
"And we don't know when he will be able to resume training. So with the semi-final less than a fortnight away, it doesn't give Richie much time to get himself right for the match."
