NOTRE DAME, Ind. – No news is good news for the Irish. Notre Dame head coach Bob Davie reported only one new injury.

Fullback Tom Lopienski’s condition was downgraded from probable to questionable. The junior is not expected to play in the contest against Stanford due to a shoulder injury. Lopienski seems to be having some trouble with some nerves in his shoulder.

Jason Roberts and Mike McNair will see some playing time at the fullback spot if Lopienski does not suit up on Saturday.

As usual, Arnaz Battle and Grant Irons will not play this Saturday.
