A veteran Notre Dame wide receiver has reportedly suffered a fractured collarbone heading into the start of the 2019 season.

Michael Young, a potential starter at wideout for the Fighting Irish, suffered the injury during a practice on Saturday.

ND Insider has confirmed the news.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pound junior broke his collarbone during Saturday’s practice inside Notre Dame Stadium, a source confirmed with the Tribune.

Irish Sports Daily first reported Young’s injury as a broken collarbone. Immediately following Saturday’s practice, head coach Brian Kelly said he hadn’t received further information on Young’s status.

Young was a three-star recruit coming out of high school.

The 5-foot-10 wide receiver caught 7 passes for 138 yards and 1 touchdown last season.

Notre Dame is set to open its 2019 season on Sept. 2 against Louisville.
