No. 9 Notre Dame got out of Florida State with a season opening win Sunday night but on Monday we found out some unfortunate news in regards to injuries a few players sustained in the 41-38 overtime victory.
Here is what Brian Kelly had to say about the injuries sustained:

"We've got two MRI scheduled at 2:30. I forgot today is Labor Day. Hard to get an MRI tech into work on Labor Day. But we do have them for 2:30 set for Shayne Simon and for Blake Fisher. Both of them are at 2:30. We think very similar to what I kind of alluded to last night, but we want to obviously make certain relative to the injuries there."

"Paul Moala tore his other Achilles tendon. Devastating. It was an emotional locker room last night. I kind of didn't tip that off to you guys because it was still pretty raw. But yeah, we're all very disappointed for Paul. He worked so hard to get back to getting on the field. But we love Paul and he's gonna be missed. He's a guy that we were counting on and he's gonna be sorely missed."

"Bauman has a non weight bearing fracture (leg). So, he'll get surgery. He'll have a plate inserted and if all things go well there, that is six weeks."
