Floyd, Smith Out Two Weeks
Charlie Weis said freshman receiver Michael Floyd and sophomore linebacker Brian Smith will miss the last two games of the season after suffering knee injuries in Saturday's 27-21 win over Navy. The Notre Dame coach said both players could return in time for a bowl game.
"It would be unreasonable to see either one of them play the next two weeks," said Weis, who described the injuries as "strains." "It's a four-week deal."
Weis said cornerback Terrail Lambert, who turned is ankle during Thursday's practice and did not play against Navy, is "50-50" for Saturday's game against Syracuse at Notre Dame Stadium.
The senior corner may have trouble winning back his job, however. Weis lauded freshman backup Robert Blanton's performance against the Midshipmen.
I will post the entire press conference transcript as soon as its available.
