Queeney suffers suspected broken jaw

Meath will be without several key players ahead of Sunday's O'Byrne Cup opener against Wexford at Pairc Tailteann including Jamie Queeney who suffered a suspected broken jaw in Tuesday night's SF Challenge win over Cavan.

Meath will also be without several key players with Joe Sheridan, Stephen Bray, Cian Ward, Kevin Reilly and Shane O'Rourke all set to join Queeney on the absentee list.

Queeney and O'Rourke are likely to be long term absentees with O'Rourke undergoing a back operation on Thursday afternoon to correct a nagging problem and Queeney set to see a specialist today (Friday) to assess the jaw injury picked up during Tuesday night's 0-13 to 1-7 SF challenge win over Cavan.

Reilly is still recovering from an Achilles injury picked up while on international duty for Ireland against Australia. Ward and Bray are also rehabbing from injuries picked up towards the end of last season, but they are expected to return to full training this week with a view to being available for a possible O'Byrne Cup second round match against Louth, who received a walkover from Kilkenny.

Manager Seamus McEnaney also confirmed this week that Seamus Kenny will retain the captaincy of the Meath senior football team for 2012.
