Keith Earls will be sidelined for approx. 6 to 8 weeks
Keith Earls has been ruled out for approximately 6 to 8 weeks after sustaining medial ligament damage to his left knee.
Earls was scheduled to join his Irish colleagues in camp on Sunday evening after Munster's round 6 Heineken Cup game v Edinburgh. But after picking up an injury to his left knee he was replaced after 25 minutes and consequently did not travel to Carton House.
Keith, who signed a two year IRFU contract this week to stay with the province, underwent a scan on Monday before meeting with the specialist yesterday in Dublin where the injury prognosis was confirmed.
