Notre Dame QB Dayne Crist Out for Season, Patella Tendon Rupture

The injury bug has certainly been biting Notre Dame this season. And today it bit starting quarterback Dayne Crist again. Last week, in a loss to Navy, ND was without their top three weapons on offense: Theo Riddick, Kyle Rudolph and Michael Floyd.

This week they lost Crist, their starting QB, early in their home game versus Tulsa. He’s out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon.

It’s really unfortunate, and even a bit eerie, when you consider that the injury occurs almost one exact year to the day after Crist injured his ACL. Last Halloween versus Washington State. Crist was 0/2 passing before giving way to sophomore Tommy Rees.
