Rory Gallagher said Brendan Rogers will be back in time for Derry's opening Ulster SFC game on Sunday, July 11.

The defender was forced off with a hamstring injury in Derry's win over Cavan and is expected back in 'full training' next Tuesday night.

At the time, Gallagher told the County Derry Post that a scan revealed a 'small tear' and it was a 'two or three week' injury.

“He will be back (for the championship), no problem,” the Derry boss said after Saturday's game in Croke Park.

“This game was not the be-all and end-all by any stretch of the imagination. It was nice to play and nice to perform in, but there was no way I was going to risk him. But, he will be back in full training in about ten days’ time,” Gallagher outlined on Saturday, after Derry's win at Croke Park.
