The James Stephens defender injured ligaments in his ankle when falling awkwardly at the end of Sunday’s win over Dublin in Nowlan Park.

Tyrrell had only come on a sub, but he had to be assisted off the field. He is on crutches and is receiving treatment, but he will definitely miss Sunday’s trip to Cork and the home game against Galway the following week.
