Prosise, Russell out for No. 4 Irish vs. No. 13 Stanford
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame’s leading rusher C.J. Prosise is doubtful with a sprained ankle for the biggest game of the season, when the fourth-ranked Fighting Irish play No. 13 Stanford on Saturday, Nov. 28, with a college football playoff berth on the line.
Cornerback KeiVarae Russell, the team’s second-leading tackler, is out for the game with a broken right leg.
Prosise has a high ankle sprain. The injury occurred when his left foot got caught under Boston College defensive lineman Connor Wujciak as he was being tackled in the second quarter of Saturday’s 19-16 win.

Coach Brian Kelly said Sunday that Prosise is doubtful.
Russell broke a bone in his leg late in the fourth quarter when he hit running back Tyler Rouse hard, knocking the ball loose with 70 seconds left.
Kelly said Russell is out six to eight weeks.
