Fit-again winger Jacob Stockdale has returned to the Ireland squad for Sunday's Six Nations game in Scotland.

Stockdale missed Ireland's first three games through injury but returned in Ulster's Pro14 win over Ospreys.

Stockdale, 24, also started for the province in Saturday's 38-19 defeat by Leinster in Belfast.

Winger Shane Daly will stay with Munster while Leinster flanker Josh van der Flier will undergo return-to-play protocols before the Murrayfield game.

In a squad update released on Monday, the IRFU also confirmed there were no significant injury concerns surrounding the other 12 players who featured in Pro14 fixtures over the weekend.

Ireland recovered from losing their opening two games to Wales and France with a commanding 48-10 victory over Italy in Rome last time out.
