A third Notre Dame football player has been suspended from the team.
Head coach Brian Kelly announced Thursday that starting tight end Alize Mack was suspended for “internal matters” not related to academics. The announcement came one day after wide receiver Kevin Stepherson and running back C.J. Holmes were suspended indefinitely after being charged with shoplifting.
In addition to those three, the Irish will also be without sophomore wideout Chase Claypool, who suffered a shoulder injury.
The Irish take on LSU at the Citrus Bowl on New Year’s Day. Catch the game at 1 p.m. on ABC 57 or 107.3 WRSW.
