Tyrone's Brennan out for eight weeks

May 24, 2018

Monaghan's Kieran Duffy and Lee Brennan of Tyrone chase possession during the Ulster SFC quarter-final in Omagh

Tyrone hopes of reaching the Super 8s have been dealt a major blow with the news that ace forward Lee Brennan is set to be sidelined for the next eight weeks.

Brennan, who finished top-scorer in Division 1 of the National League with 2-30, aggravated his hamstring during last Sunday's Ulster SFC quarter-final defeat to Monaghan and, as a result, is set to miss the entire All-Ireland SFC qualifiers.

It's more bad news for Red Hands boss Mickey Harte, who will be missing Mark Bradley for the next six weeks after the Killyclogher forward sustained ankle ligament damage against the Farney County in Omagh.

Both Colm Cavanagh and Tiernan McCann came off injured in the two-point defeat at Healy Park and are thought to be concerns for their county's first round qualifier on June 9th, while Peter Harte will definitely miss out on the game after picking up a straight red card late on last Sunday.
