Harte 'gutted' for injured Cavanagh

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte says he feels for injured star Sean Cavanagh after it was confirmed that the midfielder will be out of action for the rest of this season because of a shoulder injury.

Harte admitted that he is now considering a call-up for one of the forward players who opted out of the intercounty scene after last year's campaign although he refused to elaborate further.

Those who could be in the frame may include Brian McGuigan, Kevin Hughes, Enda McGinley and Tommy McGuigan.

Despite the Reds Hands' latest injury blow, Harte expressed confidence in the ability of the squad ahead of Sunday week's Ulster SFC against Armagh at the Athletic Grounds.
