Notre Dame sophomore TE Cole Kmet (ankle) will practice this week after missing last Saturday's game against Wake Forrest.
Kmet (6'6/258) has been sidelined with an ankle sprain since September 8th's game against Ball State. Before leaving that game, he only caught one pass for 18 yards, but he's an exceptional athlete with at least some promise. The sophomore should be able to suit up for next Saturday's game against No. 8 Stanford. Sep 23 - 2:53 PM

Notre Dame sophomore TE Cole Kmet (leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Wake Forest.

While Kmet will sit against the Demon Deacons this coming weekend -- marking the second consecutive game he has been forced to miss due to the leg injury he sustained against Ball State in Week 2 -- this doesn't look to be a long term injury. Irish HC Brian Kelly told reporters that the team expects the 6-foot-6, 258-pound sophomore to be healthy for their big Week 5 showdown with Stanford. Kmet is a reserve cog for Notre Dame and his absence versus Wake Forest on Saturday doesn't figure to be felt too acutely.

Notre Dame sophomore TE Cole Kmet (leg) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Vanderbilt.

Kmet exited last Saturday's game against Ball State with a right leg injury. This hurts Notre Dame's depth at the position, but that's about it.

Notre Dame sophomore TE Cole Kmet left Saturday's game against Ball State due to a right leg injury.

Kmet suffered the injury during the fourth quarter, and he was unable to put any pressure on the leg when being helped off of the field. Losing Kmet, an outstanding athlete who's also a member of the Notre Dame baseball team, would be a hit to the Fighting Irish's depth at the tight end position. Kmet caught one pass for 18 yards against Ball State prior to his departure.

Notre Dame sophomore TE Cole Kmet is taking first-team reps.

Kmet (6'5/258) is one of the best athletes at Notre Dame. Not only does he have a 38-inch vertical, but he is also a pitcher for the ND baseball team. The former four-star is expected to take on a much bigger role and very well could be the starting tight end in the first game against Michigan, despite only securing two catches last season. Kmet has breakout potential for a Notre Dame offense that lost multiple pass catchers to the NFL this offseason.

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly said, "We don't think there can be a better tandem at the tight end position [than freshman TE Brock Wright and freshman TE Cole Kmet]."

Wright lands at No. 29 in the ESPN 300 -- making him Notre Dame's highest-ranking 2017 signee -- but Kmet is an intriguing tight end prospect in his own right. The Worldwide Leader slotted the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder into their 2017 master list at No. 122. notes that Kmet has shown noticeable improvement in his blocking over the past two seasons.
