Notre Dame makes just their second trip in program history to Blacksburg, Virginia this weekend as a date with Virginia Tech awaits. Will one of the nation’s finest tight ends be available for the Irish?

Here is what Brian Kelly said about Mayer’s hamstring injury on Thursday ahead of the game:

“We’ve added to his workload and when I say workload, I mean in terms of what we want him to do for us, because we’re managing him so we can get him to Saturday and so he can play at the level that he’s capable of playing at.

We’ve done a little bit each day. We’ll do a little bit more today in the red zone with him and in third down, which are obviously key components to his effectiveness for us.

It’s been a good progression for us and we feel pretty optimistic that he’s going to be able to help us on Saturday.”

– Brian Kelly on Michael Mayer

It sounds like Mayer is going to be able to go against the Hokies. Here’s hoping he’s able to run like he did the first four games of the season and not so much how he looked in the second half against Cincinnati.
