Injury update

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly didn’t have a lot of information when he talked with the media on a conference call Sunday, but he did give some updates on injuries suffered in Saturday’s 31-17 loss to USC.

Tommy Rees had an MRI on his right knee, which temporarily knocked him out of the game in the third quarter, and defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore had an MRI on an injured ankle.

“The initial was that (Rees) will have some soreness there, but it shouldn’t prevent him from practicing on Tuesday,” Kelly said.

As for Lewis-Moore, Kelly said it didn’t seem serious, but he will get more information later Sunday.

“They looked at (Lewis-Moore) last night, but like most of our injuries – soft tissue, ankle, knee – all them get MRIs,” Kelly said. “We will have MRI results back from Kap and Tommy.”

Kelly also said receiver Michael Floyd, who was held to four receptions for 28 yards against the Trojans, sprained his thumb. The injury will not require an MRI.

Safety Zeke Motta suffered a concussion in the loss as well.
