Injury will cost Irish a starting lineman for bowl game

An injury lingering from the regular-season finale will cost Notre Dame a starting offensive lineman in its bowl game later this month.

Left guard Chris Watt suffered an injury to his MCL in the Nov. 30 loss to Stanford. Despite the nearly one-month gap between games, the senior has been ruled out of the Dec. 28 Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers.

“He’s not going to need surgery, but he’s not going to be able to play in the bowl game with the MCL,” head coach Brian Kelly said. “It’s a two-three (degree sprain), it’s going to require immobilization. He’s immobilized right now.”

Watt started 11 of the Irish’s 12 games this season, missing only a Nov. 2 win over Navy because of a knee injury. Of the 50 games in which Watt has played, he started 37 of those contests.
