SHARE Notre Dame’s DaVaris Daniels out until the bowl game

Notre Dame wide receiver DaVaris Daniels will miss the last two games of the regular season after undergoing surgery to repair a broken clavicle suffered in the third quarter against Boston College. Brian Kelly said Daniels — Notre Dame’s third-leading receiver — will resume running in three or four weeks, and is expected to be able to play in the Irish’s bowl game.

Daniels had his best game last week against Pittsburgh, making seven catches for 86 yards. He has 25 catches for 375 yards on the season.

“He was making really good progress, learning how to play the position,” Kelly said.

Senior John Goodman replaced Daniels after the injury — which was suffered while trying to come up with a pass in the end zone — and promptly hauled in an 18-yard touchdown pass from Everett Golson.

In other injury news, cornerback KeiVarae Russell’s head injury “cleared up nicely,” according to Kelly, who expects him to be ready to practice on Tuesday.
