Next Men In? Michael Floyd, Theo Riddick hurting for Notre Dame

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Wide receiver Michael Floyd has a Grade 1 hamstring pull and fellow receiver Theo Riddick was in a walking boot Sunday and will undergo an MRI after x-rays on his injured ankle were ''clean,'' Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Sunday.

The Irish play Navy at the Meadowlands on Saturday.

Floyd apparently suffered the injury in practice last Wednesday. He had nine receptions for 157 yards and three touchdowns in Notre Dame's 44-20 victory over Western Michigan in South Bend. He was schedule to go for further testing on the injured hamstring Sunday.
Safety Jamoris Slaughter, who aggravated an ankle injury against Pittsburgh last week and did not start against Western Michigan, also will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, Kelly said.

If Riddick can't play against Navy, freshman TJ Jones would replace Riddick as the slot receiver and John Goodman would move into Jones' starting 'X' receiver spot, Kelly said.  David Toma would back up Jones and freshman Bennett Jackson would play behind Goodman.
