Starting guard Patrick Vahe was injured today in practice. Word is that it’s an ankle. Severity and outlook for return are currently unknown. Zach Shackleford and Tristan Nickelson remain in the pit with their own injuries and the staff are more optimistic about Nickelson’s return for the season opener than Shackleford.
So, if you’re counting at home, it’s 9 days until Notre Dame and Texas is down 3 of 5 starting OL.
If you’ve read your TTF, you also know that the Notre Dame front four is huge and features two future NFL draft picks in 320 pound NT Jarron Jones and 290 pound SDE Isaac Rochell.
