Notre Dame DL ‘getting close’ to returning

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have had a string on bad luck when it comes to injuries this year. That bad luck started before the season even began when defensive tackle Jarron Jones suffered a season-ending torn MCL in August.

Jones was not expected to return at all this year, but it was reported that he could be closer to being healthy than some believed. It has been said that Jones will be traveling to Boston on Saturday when the team takes on Boston College in the Shamrock Series, however, he will likely not be playing for around another month.

The Irish are likely going to be in the College Football Playoff if they finish the year 11-1, so that means Jones’ first game back could be in the Orange or Cotton Bowl.

The Irish have done a great job adjusting without Jones, but having a guy with such serious NFL potential back on the field is always a positive.
