Paddy Butler for Munster

Neck injury: Paddy Butler

Munster have released an injury update which states that Paddy Butler will be monitored by their medical team after he suffered a neck injury.

Back-row forward Butler sustained the injury whilst playing for Shannon and was stretchered off, with his time out of the game not yet known.

Munster, who do not play this weekend due to the Six Nations, continued by giving updates on other players currently on the treatment table.

"Luke O'Dea has started to resume limited training - non-contact initially - as he continues to recover from the broken thumb injury he sustained playing for Munster A away to Plymouth Albion in December," read a statement.

"Sean Dougall, who sprained an ankle against Connacht in December, and Cathal Sheridan, who injured his knee at Ravenhill in January, are both taking part in rehab running.

"Academy player Johnny Holland is expected to return to non-contact training at the end of the week after hurting his ribs in Munster A's win over Stirling County 10 days ago.

"Donnacha Ryan, Keith Earls and Ivan Dineen will continue with their rehabilitation, the former pair continue to recover from knee injuries and Dineen from an ankle sprain.

"Long-term absentees Mike Sherry (knee/shoulder) and Niall Ronan (knee) continue to follow their programmes."
