No. 18 Notre Dame bounced back in a big way Saturday with a 39-10 win over Nevada. But in the victory, the Irish suffered a tough loss when sophomore cornerback Shaun Crawford tore his Achilles tendon, effectively bringing an end to his season, Irish head coach Brian Kelly confirmed Sunday.
“Shaun is a unique player [with] great ball skills — probably had a chance to compete, if we decided, to be one of our starting receivers,” Kelly said. “He’s got great instincts for the game, and just, again, a guy that really has a great sense and feel for the game. And that’s hard to teach a lot of that, so to lose that is pretty significant.”
