Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees walks off the field Saturday after Notre Dame's 14-10 victory over Southern California in South Bend. Rees was knocked out of the game in the third quarter.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said quarterback Tommy Rees has been cleared to play against Air Force after missing much of the second half against USC with a strained neck.
Rees left the game with 9 minutes left in the third quarter after being sacked and the offense struggled without him as the Irish held on for a 14-10 victory against the Trojans. Kelly says he will monitor Rees in practice this week. Backup Andrew Hendrix was 0-for-4 passing as the offense floundered without Rees, who is completing 53 percent of his passes.
Kelly says he is confident Hendrix will play better when he gets in a game again. He says Hendrix and freshman quarterback Malik Zaire will get more time at practice this week.
