Manti Te’o can expect a break this week. Notre Dame’s standout middle linebacker had 10 tackles against Air Force despite playing on a sprained ankle.“He had a slight sprain on Wednesday in practice and we kept him limited,” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said. “But even with his limited ability, he was an impact player. He’s an amazing football player. I mean, he does things each and every week that sometimes defy what the average player would be able to accomplish.“You know, he was hobbled in an offense that requires the linebacker to be integral in what happens, and he played very, very well. That’s why I said it was not a high ankle sprain, and he was able to play and play effectively, but this break comes at a good time for him.”Ethan Johnson remained on the sideline in a walking boot after twisting his ankle against Purdue last week. The senior defensive end will see limited practice time during the bye week with hopes that he will be healthy enough to return when Notre Dame hosts USC on Oct. 22.
