Jamoris Slaughter Injury: Senior Safety Out For Season With Achilles Injury

University of Notre Dame strong safety Jamoris Slaughter is out for the remainder of the season after injuring his Achilles Saturday in the Fighting Irish's victory over the Michigan State Spartans, according to Irish Illustrated.

Slaughter left Saturday's game on the first play of the second half. He had to be helped off the field and put no weight on his injured Achilles. He was later seen on crutches and wearing a protective boot. Slaughter was replaced on defense by sophomore safety, Matthias Farley.

Slaughter, a senior, figured to play an important role in 2012 for the touted Fighting Irish defense. In his four year career at Notre Dame, Slaughter had amassed 98 total tackles, one forced fumble and two interceptions in 39 games. He had eight tackles already in three games this season, including two in the first half of Saturday's game.
