There was more injury woe for Meath today when dual star Mickey Burke limped out of the NHL Div 2B action against Down at Ballycran and it is understood that the Longwood star has a hamstring problem.
Burke started at midfield today for Meath, but he was replaced in the second-half by Gary Kelly with about 12 minutes remaining.
Last week Burke played for the hurlers less than 24 hours after he helped Meath to victory in the NFL Div 2 against Laois.
Meath footballers are scheduled to tackle Down in a crucial NFL Div 2 tie at Pairc Tailteann this Saturday night and Burke is, at this stage, on the doubtful ist for that game.
