    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports1 day ago

    As expected, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly confirmed the four players involved in the university's academic investigation will not play in Saturday's season opener against Rice.

    Wide receiver DaVaris Daniels, linebacker Kendall Moore, cornerback KeiVarae Russell and defensive end Ishaq Williams were suspended from team activities Aug. 15 as part of Notre Dame's investigation into potential academic improprieties. The ban extends to practice and games, though the four players are still welcome to be around the team's facilities.

    Kelly said he hasn't received an update from the university on a timetable of when the investigation will be completed, but explained that he hasn't been frustrated by the process.

    "I did not feel in this instance that I was at any time left out of the loop, felt as though I was blindsided by a long investigation," Kelly said. "I think the information that was ascertained in this matter was pretty straightforward. It was quick, and once they were able to kind of confirm the information, Jack (Swarbrick) let me know. So at no time did I feel that."
