Tyrone’s injury crisis has intensified, with midfielder Declan McClure the latest victim.
The Clonoe man suffered a shoulder injury while playing for his club against Errigal Ciaran on Monday night.
McClure was forced off midway through the second half, and is now a serious doubt for the Red Hands’ All-Ireland Qualifier against Meath on Saturday June 9.
Tyrone have already lost attackers Lee Brennan and Mark Bradley with hamstring and ankle injuries respectively.
Colm Cavanagh and Tiernan McCann have not yet regained full fitness after returning from quad muscle and kneecap injuries respectively, and both were unable to complete the Ulster SFC defeat to Monaghan ten days ago.
And Peter Harte will miss the clash with the Royals at Pairc Tailteann because of suspension. He received a straight red card in the dying moments of the Healy Park clash with Monaghan.
