Diarmuid O'Connor will miss Mayo's All-Ireland Football Qualifier against Armagh on Saturday evening. 

Midwest Sport learned early this morning that Diarmuid sustained an injury to his wrist in training last night. 

The following statement has been issued this morning by the Mayo County Board: 

'The Mayo Senor squad are continuing their preparations for Saturday's qualifier game with Armagh in Elverys MacHale Park. The latest injury news on the squad is as follows: Donal Vaughan, Seamus O'Shea, James Carr and Ger Cafferkey all participated fully in last night's session following recent injuries and all are in contention for selection this weekend. Diarmuid O'Connor suffered a wrist injury in training last night. He was immediately assessed by our medical team and will undergo further examination later this week when the full extent of the injury will be confirmed.'

It is the second big injury blow to Mayo in as many weeks, with midfielder Matthew Ruane breaking his collarbone in recent weeks.
