SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says linebacker Danny Spond told teammates Saturday that his football career is over with the 14th-ranked Fighting Irish.
Kelly wouldn't disclose the exact reason other than to say it was a medical condition. He says the senior from Littleton, Colo., planned to issue a statement next week.
Spond had a health scare last preseason when he was struck with a headache so severe doctors were concerned he may have had a stroke. He was diagnosed with a kind of migraine marked by debilitating pain. He was hospitalized four days and underwent rehabilitation to learn to walk again.
At practice Saturday, Spond was walking with a cane.
Kelly also said defensive lineman Tony Springmann injured his left knee and is expected to miss the opener against Temple.
