SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - One member of the Notre Dame defense who will not be available this weekend against Louisville or the rest of the season is linebacker Paul Moala.

Kelly confirmed the Penn High School graduate tore his achilles tendon on Saturday against Florida State. Moala is scheduled for surgery.

“If this injury taught me anything, it’s that no matter who you are, there are people that care for you,” Moala tweeted. “So grateful for the kind messages. Never cried so much in my life knowing my season was done but I fully trust God has a plan for me! All love and mad love to my boys. 13 out.”

The junior linebacker recorded seven tackles in Notre Dame’s three games this season.
