Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly said that junior RB Josh Adams was feeling some ankle stiffness at the half in Saturday's game against Michigan State.

Adams was held out in the second half as a precautionary measure. While an X-ray on the stiff ankle has returned negative, his status is worth monitoring in the practice-week lead-up to next Saturday's game against Miami (OH). He should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Notre Dame junior RB Dexter Williams scored through the air and on the ground in a 38-18 victory over Michigan State on Saturday.

Williams (5'11/215) certainly made the most of his nine touches on Saturday against the Spartans. His first touchdown was a nifty eight-yard catch from Brandon Wimbush that gave Notre Dame a 21-7 lead in the middle of the second. His second score was a 14-yard burst that put the Irish up 28-7 and essentially ended the game. Notre Dame RB Josh Adams was seen hobbling and had only nine carries, so there could be even more touches in the future for the junior tailback.

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Wimbush completed 14-of-20 passes for 173 yards and a touchdown and ran for a score in a 38-18 victory over Michigan State on Saturday.

We knew what Wimbush could do with his speed. We still have questions about the arm, but this was easily his best passing game as the starter. The 6-foot-1, 228-pound quarterback was accurate, and showed better touch with his throws than he did against Georgia or Boston College. He opened the scoring with an easy 16-yard run up the middle to make it 7-0 Irish. His passing touchdown was an eight-yard dart where Wimbush scrambled to his right and found an open Dexter Williams and gave Notre Dame a 21-7 lead. It's just one game and Michigan State didn't look like a contender, but these kind of efforts will bode well for Notre Dame's effort to get into a New Year's Six bowl this season.

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly said that he expects Cameron Smith (ankle) to be at 100 percent for Saturday's contest against Michigan State.

Smith didn't play against Boston College, but the 5-foot-10, 200-pound receiver should be all systems go this Saturday against the Spartans. In the first two games of the year, the former Arizona State transfer has 7 catches for 54 yards.

Western Michigan and Notre Dame have agreed to a contest on September 19, 2020.

The Broncos will be heading out to South Bend for the game. They'll be cashing a big payday, too, as the game will net the school $1.175 million -- the biggest payout in program history. The two teams last played in 2010, in a game which the Irish won 44-20.

In Albert Breer's initial list of the top 10 prospects for the 2018 NFL Draft, Notre Dame redshirt junior G Quenton Nelson was mentioned as the top OL.

Nelson is the only offensive lineman to make the top 10, although Texas' Connor Williams would have been listed if he was healthy (torn meniscus). Nelson had a chance to jump to the NFL but elected to stay. We've seen guards be selected in the top 10 in recent history, and Nelson apparently could be the next.

Notre Dame second-year WR Javon McKinley will redshirt the season.

This makes him a redshirt freshman, unless the team chooses to remove the redshirt due to injury. McKinley appeared in six games last season.
Sep 18 - 10:30 AM

Notre Dame senior WR Freddy Canteen will miss the remainder of the season with a torn labrum.

Canteen is a graduate transfer from Michigan and played in tow games for the Irish, totaling just one catch for seven yards. This likely ends his collegiate career unless a redshirt year is granted.
Sep 18 - 10:15 AM

Notre Dame redshirt freshman Tony Jones (ankle) X-rays came back negative after Saturday's 49-20 victory over Boston College.

Jones (5'11/224) ran for five yards and a touchdown on two carries before leaving with the injury. He should be considered day-to-day until further updates are provided.
Sep 16 - 8:02 PM

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Wimbush completed only 11-of-24 passes for 96 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 49-20 win over Boston College, but he ran for 207 yards and four touchdowns.

Forget about the lackluster passing stats for a second. A quarterback rushing for over 200 yards with four touchdowns against a defense that has been a top-25 FBS unit for two years running is an incredible feat. Wimbush must improve in the pocket -- he's completing barely 50-percent of his passes to go with a poor 2/2 TD/INT rate -- but, like a slick-fielding shortstop who's struggling with the bat, he's providing all kinds of surplus value as a runner. Wimbush has another test upcoming next week at Michigan State.
Sep 16 - 7:36 PM

Notre Dame junior RB Josh Adams rushed for 229 yards on 18 carries in Saturday's 49-20 win over Boston College.

Last week, Adams was held to 54 rushing yards by Georgia's rough-and-tumble front. Today, he shredded a Boston College defense that has been stellar over the past few years. Adams is a strong collegiate back, and he runs behind one of college football's best lines. Health permitting, he's going to exceed 1,000 rushing yards for the first time this fall.
Sep 16 - 7:29 PM

Notre Dame junior RB Josh Adams rushed for 54 yards on 19 carries in Saturday's 20-19 loss to Georgia.

The Irish boast one of the more interesting rushing attacks in the country with Adams, Dexter Williams and QB Brandon Wimbush, but that troika was unable to find traction in Saturday's loss. Notre Dame finished with just 56 yards rushing as a team. Adams did at least somewhat augment his game with six catches for 60 yards, but this was just a disappointing offensive showing on the whole by the Irish.
Sep 9 - 11:33 PM

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Wimbush completed 20-of-40 passes for 211 yards in Saturday's 20-19 loss to Georgia.

Not only was Wimbush was inefficient through the air, the dual-threat gunslinger also failed to put together any sort of a rushing attack -- he managed just one yard on the ground after sacks were factored in. Speaking of sacks, Wimbush took a huge one at the end of the game. With Notre Dame looking to potentially bring home a hard-fought victory (they just needed a field goal to take the lead), the redshirt sophomore was hit on a dropback and fumbled the ball. Georgia subsequently recovered and that, as they say, was that. Wimbush and the Irish will look to bounce back from this offensive struggle when they take on Boston College next Saturday.
Sep 9 - 11:30 PM

Notre Dame redshirt senior TE Durham Smythe will return to the field against Georgia after clearing concussion protocol.

Smythe caught two passes for 34 yards before dealing with the head injury. Notre Dame absolutely dominated Temple, mostly on the ground. Their passing attack will likely be needed against Georgia.

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Wimbush completed 17-of-30 passes for 184 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 49-16 win over Temple.

Count it as a successful debut for Wimbush. He could have been sharper as a passer, but he more than made up for that inefficiency with his work on the ground. The 6-foot-1, 216-pounder finished with 106 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in the victory. Notre Dame looked very, very sharp in the opener after slogging out to a 4-8 record last season. Up next on the docket, a showdown with Georgia.
