Notre Dame has been embracing the "next man up" philosophy this season. The Fighting Irish have now lost five players for the season following Monday night's news that starting tight end Durham Smythe is done for the year.
Immediately following the news about Smythe being broken, Fighting Irish freshman tight end Aliz'e Jones tweeted out that he and the other tight ends will pick up the slack.
A good attitude for Jones to have. He, Nic Weishar, Tyler Luatua and Chase Hounshell will have to be big at tight end for Notre Dame moving forward.
