Notre Dame will apparently be without its starting quarterback, Ian Book, as the Fighting Irish look to stay undefeated this weekend against Florida State.
IrishSportsDaily is reporting that Book, who took over the starting quarterback duties earlier in the season, will be sitting out of Saturday’s game.
Book is reportedly dealing with multiple injuries.
The Irish will face another hurdle this weekend as starting quarterback Ian Book will be out for Saturday’s game against Florida State, according to multiple sources,
The 6-foot, 203-pounder suffered multiple injuries to his midsection during this past week’s game at Northwestern, which will prevent him from playing in Saturday’s game.
247Sports confirmed with Notre Dame that Book is dealing with injuries, though the school wouldn’t confirm that he’s out for the game.
Notre Dame has confirmed that Book is battling a rib injury but would not confirm that Book will miss the Florida State game.
Book absorbed a shot to the back/side from Northwestern defender Montre Hartrage at the 9:20 mark of the first quarter in Evanston. It is not confirmed that hit was the blow that caused the injury though Book was slow to rise and favored his right side on the way back to the line of scrimmage. Notre Dame called timeout in a fourth-down situation thereafter before converting on a Book quarterback sneak.
Notre Dame and Florida State are set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. E.T. on NBC.
