SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame will be without receiver Torii Hunter Jr. to start the football season.

Coach Brian Kelly announced Saturday that Hunter is expected to be out four to six weeks after tearing his left groin. Hunter, whose father plays for the Detroit Tigers, sat out his freshman year after breaking his leg in a high school all-star game.

The Irish are looking for a go-to receiver to replace T.J. Jones, who graduated. The only returning receiver with more than 15 catches is DaVaris Daniels, who had 49 catches for 745 yards. But he was suspended for the spring semester for an academic violation and he's been limited in preseason camp with a groin injury.

Kelly is hoping players such as Chris Brown and Corey Robinson can help fill the void.
