Notre Dame Football: Tommy Rees, Andrew Hendrix To Compete For Back-Up Gig Against

Notre Dame Fighting Irish junior quarterback Tommy Rees will compete for the No. 2 job with Andrew Hendrix after being placed back on the depth chart this week, as Eric Hansen of the South Bend Tribune reports. Rees was suspended for the season opener against Navy following an offseason arrest.

Last season, Rees was the primary starter for the Fighting Irish, but he's lost that job following the arrest and subsequent suspension by head coach Brian Kelly. Sophomore Everett Golson has since taken over as the starter for Notre Dame, leading the Irish to a blowout 50-10 victory over Navy on Saturday in Dublin, Ireland.

Against Navy, both Golson and Hendrix saw playing time, so Kelly isn't necessarily committed to playing any single quarterback at the moment. Rees led the Irish to a 8-5 record last season, throwing for 2,871 yards and 20 touchdowns.
