Notre Dame to be without All-American vs. North Carolina

·1 min read

Notre Dame star safety Kyle Hamilton, who left last Saturday’s game against USC in the first half, will not play this weekend as the Irish host North Carolina.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly shared the news during his weekly Monday press conference. Kelly added that he doesn’t feel Hamilton’s injury will be a long-term issue. However, Kelly didn’t want to get into specifics with Hamilton’s injury.

“There is some confidence here that we’re going to have him back,” Kelly said, “We’ll make sure we give everybody a chance to weigh in on this matter.”

Obviously when you’re talking about a potential top-five or top-10 pick in the next NFL draft you’re looking at a lot more than a college junior simply playing to get his team into a better bowl game.

Kelly did point out that he has faith in Houston Griffith and D. J. Brown playing together while adding that Isaiah Pryor’s experience at safety could help Notre Dame in this situation.
