Notre Dame players wearing wristbands for Tarean Folston

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish suffered a huge blow in the first game of the season when starting running back Tarean Folston was lost for the season with a torn MCL. While C.J. Prosise has come in and done a nice job in his place, the team is still missing their starter and they wanted to let him know that they appreciate him.

According to College Spun, the team’s running back group along with a few others are wearing some cool wristbands. Running backs coach Autry Denson had the bracelets made and they are a really cool gesture for their injured teammate.

Hopefully Folston is able to come back next season and give his appreciation back to his teammates for supporting him through the tough time. For now, he will just have to cheer his team on as they fight for a shot at the national championship.
