Knee injury: Brian O'Driscoll

Brian O'Driscoll's participation in the Lions tour could be in doubt after he suffered a knee injury in Leinster's Rabodirect PRO12 semi-final against Glasgow.

O'Driscoll was forced off the field after just 13 minutes of the contest after receiving a blow to his knee.

The extent of the injury was not immediately known but with the Lions' clash with the Barbarians just three weeks away, an injury of any substance could see the centre sidelined.

O'Driscoll's Leinster and Lions team-mate Sean O'Brien was forced out of the encounter after suffering a recurrence of a calf muscle injury.
