Stanford likely to be without top receiver

STANFORD,Calif.– No. 17 Stanford will likely be without its top wide receiver Saturday when the Cardinal travels to undefeated No. 7 Notre Dame.

Stanford coach David Shaw said it was unlikely that sophomore Ty Montgomery will play against the Irish because of a lower body injury.

Montgomery, who has caught 18 passes for 168 yards, was injured during Stanford’s wild 54-48 overtime victory over Arizona last weekend.

Montgomery had a breakout game in Stanford’s 56-48 triple overtime won overS outhern California last season. He played in all 13 games and started the last four. He’s also Stanford’s top kickoff returner and recorded a 96-yard kickoff return against Washingtonl ast year.

Senior receiver Jamal-Rashad Patterson is expected to make his first college start in Montgomery’s place.
