Doherty has already been on the road to recovery after tearing his cruciate while in action for Mayo against Donegal in the Super 8s in Castlebar last summer.

That left him facing a long spell on the sidelines but he bounced back to line out for his club Burrishoole in the Mayo intermediate championship in August.

He then was unfortunately hit with another knee injury in recent days with the results of a scan set to determine the extent of the knock.
