Tyrone full-back Justin McMahon will miss the remainder of the NFL after learning the results of an ankle scan.

Fears that he had broken a bone have proved unfounded, but the former All-Star will still miss the remainder of the league because of ligament damage.

McMahon had just returned from a lengthy lay-off with a hamstring problem when he suffered the latest injury in the win over Antrim.

"He'll still be out for a few weeks," said assistant manager Tony Donnelly.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper John Devine is close to his first appearance of the season, after undergoing surgery on a shoulder injury.

Devine could be included in the match-day squad for Sunday's penultimate Division Two tie against Kildareexternal-link should Johnny Curran fail to recover from knee and groin problems.

"John Devine is back in training, and is likely to be in the panel as cover if Johnny hasn't recovered," added Donnelly.
