Odds and ends from Wednesday’s practice

SHARE Odds and ends from Wednesday’s practice

Some noteworthy items from today’s Notre Dame practice, in case you weren’t following me on Twitter (@MarkLazerus) during the morning:

— Sophomore tackle Jordan Prestwood. listed as No. 2 on the depth chart, is no longer on the team. “Jordan is no longer with us. I’m not able to get into the specifics about that because of privacy laws,” Brian Kelly said.

— Junior tailback Cam Roberson (knee) was not physically able to compete in practice, and will pursue a medical redshirt.

— Junior outside linebacker Danny Spond, an expected starter, suffered what Kelly said appeared to be a concussion and had to leave Wednesday’s practice. Spond dealt with a serious concussion when he played at Columbine High School in Colorado.

— Tight end Alex Welch was helped off the field after suffering an apparent knee injury toward the end of 11-on-11s at the end of practice. Kelly had no update on him.

— Freshman safety Elijah Shumate has been moved to cornerback to bolster depth at that position.

— Cierre Wood got some time on the punt return team. “I know he wanted to give it a shot,” Kelly said. “So we’re going to put him back there and see what he can do. We’re going to look at as many guys as we can right now and then whittle it down in a couple of weeks.”
