Notre Dame TE Durham Smythe out for year with injury


When the injury bug hit the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, it hit them HARD. On Saturday, Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire suffered a nasty ankle injury and it was learned that he would need surgery on a fractured that would cause him to miss the remainder of the 2015 season.

Now, Irish tight end Durham Smythe is the latest offensive starter to go down with a season-ending injury. Apparently, Smythe injured his ankle in the win over Virginia on Saturday.


Smythe had been also dealing with a shoulder injury that was re-aggravated on Saturday. He will need surgery, but is expected to make a full recovery and rejoin the team in the spring.

Smythe is the third Irish starter to be lost for the season after starting running back Tarean Folston was hit with a torn ACL in the opening game against Texas.

The Irish have been touted as one of the most talented teams in the country this year, but they will now have to make due without three big starters. The Irish next play against Georgia Tech on Saturday.
