Report: Notre Dame's Danny Spond Done With Football, Per Brian Kelly

Sad news.

Sad news for Notre Dame fans today -- outside linebacker Danny Spond is calling it quits from football. Shortly after Spond was seen on the sidelines during practice walking with a cane, head coach Brian Kelly announced the news in his post-practice press conference:

Kelly would not go into the specifics of Spond's departure, but it seems pretty easy to read between the lines -- Danny has been a regular on the team's injury report.

This is certainly very sad news for Spond and the Notre Dame faithful -- nobody ever wants to see a career shortened by injuries. Spond was expected to be a big contributor to the 2013 team -- he had 41 tackles and one interception last season.

There is some good news, as Spond will remain with the team to help out:

Best of luck to Danny Spond in all of his pursuits.
