Notre Dame redshirt sophomore DL Jarron Jones will miss the remainder of the season with a lisfranc injury.

Recovery is a four to six month process. Jones was obviously hobbled against Louisville, but has made big plays each week once using his length and strength to push his opponent in the backfield. Jones is draft-eligible, however, do not expect him to declare.

Notre Dame LT Ronnie Stanley demonstrated "the balance, strength and aggression that screams first round pick" against Louisville on Saturday, observed CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Stanley's long arms and fluid slide allowed him to protect the edge, even when matched up against speedy rusher Lorenzo Mauldin, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 2 rated senior defensive end," Rang wrote. "Playing on the balls of his feet and with his knees bent, Stanley showed good lateral agility and balance to mirror Louisville's rushers. He has heavy hands and long arms, allowing him to catch and control opponents." Rotoworld has been calling Stanley a top-50 pick since early September, but we may amend that to top 30, as gains to Stanley's game have come even more quickly than his loudest supporters anticipated. "The rich 2015 class could be enough to keep Stanley at Notre Dame for another year, though it is worth noting that many of the other highly regarded tackles project best to right tackle," Rang wrote. "Stanley's balance and wingspan, on the other hand, could allow him to remain at the blindside role at the next level."

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Everett Golson completed 16-of-24 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Louisville.

Earlier this week, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler called Golson "Mr. Turnover." Golson had some ugly plays on Saturday, but he was largely able to minimize the typical mistakes. His body language was horrific before halftime, though, particularly after a play in which he spun away from several defenders in the backfield, only to fumble the ball backward fifteen yards. Notre Dame eventually fell on the fumble and ended up in a 3rd-and-38. Head coach Brian Kelly could be seen in replays yelling the word "Why?" as though he was being tortured. Golson settled down eventually and almost led the Fighting Irish back to a win. When he's not turning the ball over, Golson's an intriguing athletic talent who has the requisite arm strength. It's unfortunate for his draft status that every game seems to have several "why?" plays.

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Everett Golson has been "Mr. Turnover" over the last seven games, writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Golson has 12 interceptions and 10 fumbles (seven lost) during that span. Bad news, that, because Notre Dame hosts Louisville and NCAA interception leader Gerod Holliman (13 picks) on Saturday. It's a good challenge for Golson, an interesting prospect who must play more consistently to transcend to an "impact" prospect. Brugler praised the signal-caller's "NFL skills," which come in the package of "his arm strength and athleticism."

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly told reporters that he thought the team's offense "would be able to bail out [the] defense" this season.

Notre Dame's offense has been doing little bailing of late. Quarterback Everett Golson and the rest of the unit has consistently been putting the Fighting Irish defense on its heels with a slew of turnovers. "It's pretty clear what our issues are," said Kelly. "All our guys know it. Our coaches know what they are. We've just got to go back to work and make sure we clean them up on Saturdays." Golson has turned the ball over 19 times in his last seven games and his looseness with the ball has caused alarm among scouts.

Notre Dame freshman DL Daniel Cage could possibly return for Notre Dame's contest with USC.

Cage is currently dealing with a knee injury that he suffered against Northwestern. With fellow defensive lineman Sheldon Day also expected to miss the team's game against Louisville, it looks like Brian Kelly's ranks will be a little thin up front.

Notre Dame junior DL Sheldon Day will miss Saturday's game against Louisville with an MCL sprain.

Day leads the Fighting Irish with 7.5 tackles for loss and nine quarterback hurries. He's also recorded a sack and a fumble recovery. Head coach Brian Kelly said that while Day will miss Saturday's game, he should be able to come back from the MCL sprain before the end of the season. Earlier this season, Kelly praised the 6-foot-2, 290-pound junior for his "work volume."

On Tuesday, Kelly told reporters that Golson was not showing any ill effects from the injury. The quarterback should be able to practice this week and, barring any setbacks, is expected to play against Louisville.

Notre Dame senior WR DaVaris Daniels is still uncertain about his football future, whether it will continue in college or a possible jump to the NFL.

Daniels was part of the group that was suspended due to academic violations and was told he would miss the entire 2014 season. The receiver is draft-eligible and is strongly considering declaring for the draft. In fact, his father previously stated Daniels would not return to the Irish but backed off that statement. I’ve changed my mind at least six times so far, and it’s still going," Daniels said, adding he will decide in January.

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Everett Golson suffered a sprained shoulder in Saturday's tilt with Northwestern.

Golson completed 21-of-40 passes for 287 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. The redshirt junior also fumbled once in the game, giving him nine fumbles on the season. Said Kelly, "There were certainly a couple of throws when he first did it where he put the ball into the ground. You could see that [the shoulder] affected him then. He said he was fine after that but obviously we missed some throws, especially in overtime."

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Everett Golson completed 21-of-40 passes for 287 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 43-40 overtime loss to Northwestern

Golson started off the game with a bang, rushing for a 61-yard touchdown in the opening series. He was limited to just 17 yards on the ground the rest of the way. All three of Golson's touchdown passes went to receiver William Fuller. A recent spate of turnovers, lowlighted by four interceptions against Arizona State, has hurt Golson's draft stock, but if he can have more games like Saturday's and show an intelligence to correct mistakes it would go a long way to reassuring NFL teams.

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Everett Golson's lack of consistency and his tendency to turn the ball over" is hurting his draft stock, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Listing Golson as a "faller" this week might be a little too obvious, but it's impossible to ignore the lack of consistency and his tendency to turn the ball over," Brugler writes. The Notre Dame prospect was 22-of-41 for 446 yards, with two touchdowns and four interceptions in Saturday's 55-31 loss to Arizona State. Brugler notes that Golson, "has impressive arm talent and intriguing intangibles, but if he "isn't able to rectify the miscues, it's tough to believe he can fix the problem in the NFL."
