Tommy O'Donnell will start from the bench for Munster A when they face Plymouth Albion in Round 3 of the British and Irish Cup tomorrow night.
However following an MRI scan yesterday it was revealed that Ryan received a bruised shoulder but had thankfully not sustained any major structural damage. He will undergo rehab treatment over the next week and is expected to be in contention for a place in the team to play France.
Meanwhile Munster have their only squad session of the week, ahead of the Ospreys game, in Cork on Thursday. The squad emerged injury free from the clash with Treviso and they also expect to have both Niall Ronan and Doug Howlett in contention for the Ospreys game should they come through that training session unscathed.
Howlett took part in training last week while Ronan did too and then capped a full eighty for Shannon on Saturday by scoring his side's final try in their 28-17 win over Old Belvedere.
