Head coach Brian Kelly confirmed Sunday afternoon that Jamoris Slaughter suffered an Achilles injury during the win over the Spartans. As a result, the safety will miss the remainder of the season.
The senior defensive back suffered the injury on the first play of the second half.
Slaughter had started the first three games of the 2012 season, and has started 19 of the 39 games in which he’s played in his Irish career.
Sophomore Matthias Farley is listed as Slaughter’s backup on ND’s most recent depth chart.
