The results of a scan have shown that Munster and Ireland centre/winger Keith Earls suffered just an ankle sprain when he injured himself in a training accident in Cork last week.
Keith Earls was in Cork again today (Tuesday) along with the rest of the Munster squad for training, although he was confined to a spectator role on the sidelines.
He is not expected to resume training again for ‘several weeks.’
The 22-year-old picked up the injury in a non-contact situation during rehabiliation work on an existing groin problem.
The Munster squad for their opening Magners League clash with Aironi Rugby will be announced on Wednesday afternoon.
