Galway are sweating over the fitness of Gearóid McInerney ahead of their All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship semi-final replay against Clare.
The centre-back was forced off with a suspected calf strain in the drawn game last Saturday and remains a major doubt for Sunday's clash at Semple Stadium.
McInerney went for a scan yesterday to determine the extent of the damage.
Hurler of the year Joe Canning looks to be winning his race to be fit after picking up a knock to his knee at the weekend.
Adrian Tuohy and Conor Whelan are also carrying slight niggles.
