The St Patrick's SC football management team of Colm O'Rourke, Enda Monaghan and Paul Byrne are hopeful that midfielder James McEntee will be available for the Leinster Colleges SFC semi-final against Dublin side Colaiste Eoin on Saturday 23rd February.
McEntee picked up a leg injury in the closing seconds of St Pat's victory over St Peter's, Wexford at Carlow last Saturday. He played a major part in that victory.
The Meath minor was carried off the pitch and while he was standing soon after he had to be assisted as he went for treatment in the Mater Hospital.
"The injury is not as bad as initially feared, he hasn't broken anything but he may have sustained damage to his ligaments," added Enda Monaghan. "We'll give him every chance to be fit before the Colaiste Eoin game and we're hopeful he will be available."
