17 Aug Scotland squad update
The Scotland medical team issued the following squad update after Saturday’s 28-22 loss to Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
Loose-head prop Ryan Grant left the field of play around the 44th minute having sustained an ankle injury in the lead up to Scotland’s second of three tries.
An x-ray after the game showed no fracture, with the results of a detailed scan later this week expected to give greater insight into the extent of his injury.
Tight-head prop Jon Welsh left the match around the 47th minute for a HIA (head injury assessment), which confirmed his concussion. He is now symptom free and has begun the graduated return-to-play protocol.
Hugh Blake dislocated a finger in the Test match but returned to full training today.
Hooker Fraser Brown has mild hamstring discomfort and will be subject to further management by the medical team.
Consequently, Glasgow Warriors hooker Kevin Bryce has joined the national team this week as a precaution.
