Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly made some changes to his depth chart as the No. 22 Irish (3-1) get ready to play No. 14 Oklahoma (3-0) on Saturday.
The most changes came on defense and reflect the moves the Irish made in their starting lineup in last weekend's 17-14 win over Michigan State.
Jarrett Grace moved up to starting inside linebacker on the depth chart. The junior started ahead of senior Dan Fox against the Spartans.
Carlo Calabrese is still listed at the other starting inside linebacker, and Kelly said all three will remain in a rotation with Fox splitting time between the inside spots.
"Even though he was transitioning, Danny did an incredible job of his whole career really was at Will, and for the team he moved over to Mike," Kelly said during his Tuesday press conference. "You know, that's how great of a team player he is, that he moves over to Mike as we continue to get Jarrett some other work.
"And Dan played a lot of Mike on Saturday, as well. I think it's an even both of those guys are playing the position. Jarrett is not taking every single one of those reps. I think you're going to continue to see Dan take some Mike reps, and obviously the Will linebacker position, as well."
Notre Dame also has a three-man rotation at safety with a new name moving into a starting position.
Sophomore Elijah Shumate was placed as a starter ahead of last year's starter Matthias Farley. Shumate started next to Austin Collinsworth at safety against Michigan State.
The backup order was also changed at safety with Farley moving behind Collinsworth with an "or" separating the two players. Freshman Max Redfield moved behind Shumate as the backup at the other safety spot as junior Eilar Hardy moved behind the freshman.
"I think you now can look at Shumate along with Collinsworth and Farley. you've got a three-person rotation that's working out pretty good for us," Kelly said.
Notre Dame now also has all five of its running backs listed on the depth chart, and no one is the clear starter. George Atkinson III, Amir Carlisle, Cam McDaniel, Greg Bryant and Tarean Folston are all separated by "or."
Kelly had referred to a four-man running back rotation during his Sunday teleconference, but the coach said that was only because the Irish didn't have a chance to use all Bryant, a freshman, against Michigan State.
"I'd like to get to five," Kelly said. "Greg certainly has a skill set that we just haven't gotten into the game yet. But again, we're trying to get him in on special teams. He's on kickoff right now. We're trying to get him involved in some of the other running teams. But we got to four; we're trying to get to five."
Kelly also said defensive end Sheldon Day, who missed the game against the Spartans with a sprained ankle, should be back for Saturday's game. Day is listed as a starter for Saturday's game against Oklahoma.
"I think he's going to be gradual as the week progresses, that we're going to see more and more from him," Kelly said. "The reports were pretty good yesterday. He went through all of our conditioning (Monday), and we hope to see him a little bit more today."
