Notre Dame football: Mitchell Evans leaves game in 3rd quarter

Aundefinedfter taking a 17-0 lead to halftime against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Notre Dame started the second half in grand fashion.

Special teams and defensive scores helped the lead quickly swell to 37-0 just minutes into the third frame.  However, things weren’t perfect for the half.  Late in the frame Sam Hartman found tight end Mitchell Evans for a 13-yard reception.  While getting tackled, Evans suffered a knee injury that he had to be helped off the field from.

There was no immediate update given to Evans or the severity of the injury.

Evans is a key cog in Notre Dame’s offense, having hauled in 356 receiving yards entering Saturday’s contest.
