The 28-year-old has been an ever-present in Kerry boss Peter Keane’s plans this year and featured in all eight of their National League Division 1 matches.

The injury was sustained during Laune Rangers victory over Castleisland Desmonds on Sunday.

Scans on Monday also confirmed that the corner back had suffered a dislocated kneecap during the game.

Crowley has been at the heart of the Kingdom’s defence, helping Kerry to six wins in their seven league games.

The 2014 All Ireland winner narrowly missed out on league success this year as Keane’s side suffered a four-point defeat to Mayo at Croke Park in March.

Kerry begin the defence of their Munster crown on 1 June when they face either Tipperary or Limerick in the semi-final.

The Munster final takes place on 22 June, with the Kingdom hoping to secure a seventh consecutive provincial title.
