Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly Choosing To Forgo Practice During Bye Week For First Time Ever

Want to know how badly Notre Dame’s football team is beaten up on the injury front? The Irish won’t be practicing during their bye week, despite the team coming off of a demoralizing loss to unranked Pittsburgh. Coach Brian Kelly told reporters the news today, making it clear that this is the first time in his career he’s made such a move.

The Irish have a very, very long list of players who have been on the DL this season. Louis Nix, Christian Lombard, Sheldon Day, Ben Councell, Ishaq Williams and Kona Schwenke are just some of the names of those who have missed time. 

Notre Dame will take on BYU next Saturday before finishing its season a week later against Stanford. We’ll see how the Irish hold up – both opponents are known for being very physical.
