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.
