Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly said nose guard Louis Nix will not play against Navy on Saturday, missing his 2nd straight game due to knee tendinitis.
Nix did not practice at all last week in preparation for Air Force. Kelly says Nix was able to practice some this week but isn't ready to go.
"He moved around a little bit, much more than last week--he's getting closer but didn't get enough work for us to play him against an option team," Kelly explained.
Kelly said offensive lineman Chris Watt (knee) and defensive end Sheldon Day (ankle) have both worked with the first teams this week and will play. Safety Elijah Shumate worked with the 2nd team and will play.
