Prince Shembo has turf toe.
Ishaq Williams is getting there. Exciting matchups with Troy Niklas today.
Jarrett Grace in the rotation at ILB and Joe Schmidt had a great day of practice on Monday.
Carlo Calabrese and Dan Fox are competing.
Tight end position has become a multi-dimensional player that can fit in out of the backfield, on the line or flexed wide. Same goes for running back and slot receiver combo.
On QB race, have gone back to zero and working on fundamentals. No one started ahead of anyone. When it is all said and done, it will be the guy that can be trusted and won't turn the football over.
Ben Koyack is a young man that is continuing to understand what the staff expects of him as a blocker. Hasn't developed game enough yet as an in-blocker, and same can be said for Alex Welch.
Both pass catchers and Tyler Eifert already fills that role.
John Goodman has been the go-to guy. He has a ways to go, but has stepped up his game considerably.He's going to have a fine year, but is going to need to be more consistent.
All call and play at quarterback right now ... no checks have even been incorporated yet, so still plenty to implement.
Notre Dame would like to play 7 deep on the DL in order to have good depth. One of which would be a swing player that could play inside or outside.
Works well with Chuck Martin because he only knows one offense - Brian Kelly's.
He hasn't worked with 4 or 5 offenses and trying to adopt this one, and work well together.
Bennett Jackson is going to be a really good player for Notre Dame.
Staff feels good about boundary corner and there's competition at field corner.
Austin Collinsworth is going to be on the field a lot.
Presser complete. Check back for recap and video.
That was a quick one,lol.

Good stuff on Jackson, Collinsworth, and the competition at LB.
If Goodman is ND's go-to guy at WR this year, the passing game is in trouble.

No not really, I see this year being a 10-15 yard passing nothing down the field and with all the guys we got at slot and RB and Atkinson able to run the go rout and with Daniels and Efiert i do not see this passing game in trouble. The only thing we need now is a QB .. Shouldn't be a problem right..
But seriously I can see only Golson and Hendrix with the arm strength and running ability to work with a 10-15 yard passing game. No down the field stuff this year just intermediate stuff. Sounds like Kelly knows what he's doing.

It would be stupid of Kelly to limit the offense like that, again. If I'm a WR this is exactly the offense that I wouldn't want to play in if they are restricted by Rees' weak arm again.
