Notre Dame LB Greer Martini Ruled Out For USC Game

Senior LB Greer Martini will not play versus USC this weekend.

Notre Dame will be without a key part of its defense on Saturday when the Fighting Irish take on No. 11 USC.

On Thursday, head coach Brian Kelly announced that senior linebacker Greer Martini will not play Saturday after having a "small procedure" on his meniscus, per 247Sports.

Martini is expected to be back for the N.C. State game on Oct. 28.

It's significant blow for the Fighting Irish, as Martini is the team's third-leading tackler this season with 39 total. He's also forced two fumbles.

At any rate, oddsmakers have Notre Dame as a 3.5-point favorite in the matchup.
