SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said quarterback Jack Coan's availability for the ninth-ranked Fighting Irish's showdown with No. 7 Cincinnati this weekend won't be known until Tuesday.
Coan suffered a severe sprain to his left ankle in the third quarter of Saturday's 41-13 victory over Wisconsin at Soldier Field in Chicago. He was replaced by redshirt freshman Drew Pyne because true freshman Tyler Buchner was unavailable because of hamstring issues.
"If Jack is healthy, Jack would be our starter," Kelly said Monday. "Tyler felt really good (Sunday) at treatment so that's good for us. I think (Tuesday) we'll make a decision on how (Coan) feels and how he looks."
