Prop Healy was a late withdrawal from the side that ran out 40-7 winners at Franklin’s Gardens last Saturday and his leg injury will continue to be assessed by Leinster’s medical staff during the week.
Scrumhalf Boss was a late withdrawal from the bench for the game against the Saints with a tight hamstring, his place going to John Cooney, but Leinster expect him to be fit for selection this weekend.
O’Brien suffered a dead leg during the first half of the game and was replaced by Shane Jennings.
O’Brien is set to limit his on-field training in the early part of the week, but is expected to be fit for selection.
