Riddick out, Floyd hurt

Anchors away!

Riddick out, Floyd hurt


 Anchors away!

 Theo Riddick's homecoming Saturday at the Meadowlands will be spoiled because his severely sprained right ankle was placed in a cast Monday. The Immaculata High School star from Manville, N.J. was really coming into his own as a wideout after being a running back last year as a freshman.

“We were fearful that it would require surgery. It doesn’t look like it will need surgery. But this is something that’s going to take some time for it to heal,” said Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly. “I can’t give you a specific date and time. We’ll see after we get the cast off here and the healing process begins as to what that looks like.” 

  And the mercurial Michael Floyd has a sore hamstring and will not practice this week, making his chances doubtful for the big game off Exit 16W. Call it a game-time decision.

   Add to that Kyle Rudolph's season-ending torn hamstring and the Irish air attack could be grounded against the undersized Middies, who always find a way to give Notre Dame fits.

   Freshman TJ Jones will move into Riddick’spot and John Goodman goes to wide receiver. If Floyd can't go, it could mean redemption and a happy homecoming for Duval Kamara, once a top prospect and recruit from Jersey City and Hoboken High School. The 6-4 senior has only one catch this year.
