Notre Dame Football Injuries: Tyler Eifert, Kapron Lewis-Moore Among Injured Irish Players

Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert was the top Irish receiving target before leaving Saturday's game versus Purdue with a concussion.

Eifert, an All-American last season, had four receptions for 98 yards and was the favorite of quarterback Everett Golson for much of the day before leaving the game.

Eifert wasn't the only casualty. Defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, safety Jamoris Slaughter, kicker Nick Tausch, receiver DaVaris Daniels, linebacker Ishaq Williams and defensive lineman Sheldon Day were also injured Saturday. Those players' statuses are uncertain at the moment, but, according to Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune, head coach Brian Kelly is not too concerned..

"We don't have anything that would require surgery," Kelly said. "Probably things that we'll have to manage. The expectation would be that most of these guys are going to clear in a very short period of time."

Notre Dame's next contest is Sept. 15 at Michigan State.
