Donegal star Eoghan Bán Gallagher has reportedly sustained a serious leg injury, ruling the defender out of the Super 8 tie with Kerry this weekend.
Gallagher suffered the injury in a training session on Wednesday night, according to Highland Radio.
It is a significant setback for Declan Bonner's side ahead of Donegal's crucial All-Ireland encounter with Kerry at Croke Park on Sunday.

Killybegs star Gallagher, who was nominated for an All-Star in 2018 after winning the Ulster Championship with Donegal, is expected to be out of action for a considerable period of time, although the specific details of the leg injury have yet to be confirmed by Donegal GAA.
Gallagher was selected in The Sunday Game 2018 Football Team of the Year and played a huge role in contributing to his county retaining their Ulster crown this year.
