The Full Extent Of Robbie Henshaw’s Injury Revealed
Ireland and Leinster centre Robbie Henshaw will miss the start of next season after suffering a pectoral muscle injury on the Lions tour.
Henshaw is set to be sidelined for around 16 weeks, having torn the muscle completely from the bone, meaning he may not return to action until late October. The centre picked up the injury while playing against the Hurricanes in Wellington.
He flew home on Saturday and looks set for surgery and a long rehabilitation process.
“With regard to Robbie Henshaw, that was a pretty significant injury.” said Lions doctor Eanna Falvey.
”He’s completely divorced the muscle from the bone.
“That needs to be reattached, so that’s usually about a 16-week recovery. He may do slightly better, but that’s probably what we’re looking at.”
