Notre Dame redshirt senior Alex Bars will miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury in Saturday's win over Stanford.
HC Brian Kelly said Sunday that "our doctors fear the worst" and indicated there may be damage to both the ACL and MCL in Bars' left knee. "It's devastating for us," Kelly said. "I feel so bad for the kid." The fifth-year senior was one of college football's best interior linemen. Trevor Ruhland and Aaron Banks will vie to fill his vacancy. Oct 2 - 12:02 PM

Notre Dame redshirt senior LG Alex Bars is feared to have a season-ending knee injury.

Bars hasn't been officially diagnosed, but coach Kelly said Notre Dame team doctors are fearing the worst. The redshirt senior might have ACL/MCL injuries which would definitely be season-enders. The loss for the Fighting Irish is more than just his valuable on-field performance. Kelly called Bars is "revered in the program" and his loss will be tough for everyone.

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore LG Alex Bars is shifting to right tackle.

With 2015 right tackle Mike McGlinchey moving to the left side to replace Ronnie Stanley, Bars will kick outside to assume McGlinchey's former post. Bars lost the second half of last season to a fractured ankle, but he'd accrued a solid +2.3 PFF grade in the run game prior to that time, "showing good athleticism to lock onto targets at the second level," wrote Steve Palazzolo.

Notre Dame redshirt freshman G Alex Bars will miss the remainder of the 2015 regular season due to a fractured ankle.

Bars suffered the injury during Saturday's 41-31 win over USC. With the 6-foot-6, 320-pound redshirt freshman down for the count, Quenton Nelson took over against the Trojans. Nelson himself is dealing with a bit of an ankle sprain, but HC Brian Kelly was pleased with how he fought through the aches and pains. "That's the expectation here," said Kelly, "You're going to have to play banged up."
