Donegal are set to miss their two senior forwards Michael Murphy and Colm Mc Fadden for the start of the National Football League next month. The Donegal captain had minor surgery on a groin injury on Monday and could be out of action for between 6-8 weeks. Colm Mc Fadden who has a back injury has been told that there is a risk of him suffering major damage if he is to play. The St. Michael’s man will miss the first two games against Down and Laois. While there is bad news for the two forwards there is good news for Christopher Murrin who received a facial injury in the Cavan Dr.McKenna game. Murrin has been told by doctors his injury is not as bad as first feared and he should be ok in the next couple of days.
