Irish expect Tommy Rees to practice Tuesday

It appears the injury that knocked Notre Dame’s starting quarterback out of its win over USC won’t linger into next weekend.

Tommy Rees suffered an injury with just under 10 minutes left in the third quarter and, after leaving the game, did not return.  He was diagnosed with a neck injury and, per head coach Brian Kelly‘s teleconference Sunday, is “day-to-day.”

Kelly did say that he expects Rees to practice Tuesday, which is as good of a prognosis as you could get.

The Irish led the Trojans 14-10 when Rees exited.  Neither offenses did much of anything after Rees’ departure as that turned out to be the final score.

Andrew Hendrix replaced Rees and did not complete any of his four attempts.  In fact, the Irish gained just 28 yards on 21 plays after Rees left the game.  Prior to that, Notre Dame had 267 yards of offense through a little over two quarters of plays.

    ND needs their back up QB badly. They 3rd stringer, Hendrix, is terrible and cannot throw a pass. The only thing worse than Notre Dame’s QB play last night was USC’s offensive misgivings with false starts, holding and other stupid penalties. USC handed that game over to ND on a silver platter.
    See ya next year at The LA Coliseum.

    We’ll be there and with Golson back we should win again.

    No question in my mind that the QB is the most important position in college football. ND is 5-2 with their back up QB who lacks the athletic ability do anything other than passing from the pocket. The only losses on the year were when his coaches put him in situations where he’s not physically equipped to succeed. Now, he still makes bad decisions that are not excusable for a senior but the losses are on the coaching staff.
