Kilkenny hurler, John Tennyson has admitted that he may not see any action with the cats this season as he continues to recover from surgery on a cruciate knee ligament injury.
Tennyson had the operation late last year, after his side’s All Ireland final defeat to Tipperary. However, he was forced to undergo a second operation inDecember and for that reason his recovery is set to take much longer than originally anticipated.
“Essentially I had another operation to clean out the wound. It got infected, I was on an IV drip and spent a week in hospital,” Tennyson said.
“I wasn’t able to do anything. They had to wash out the wound. It was painful and it has probably set me back by anything up to two months.”
“I’m not fixed on any date(for return). There is a chance that I might not hurl at all for Kilkenny this year. I’m prepared for that. My recovery has been slow. Henry would be a good bit ahead of me but his circumstances are different.”
“I won’t be rushing back – I have a few years left in me yet. I’ll do things right and if I don’t make it back in time for this year I won’t panic about it.”
