BREAKING: Notre Dame Down Another RB, McIntosh Sent Home

December 30, 2017

After a hectic week with Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly suspending sophomore running back CJ Holmes, junior tight end Alizè Mack and sophomore receiver Kevin Stepherson, things had settled down as the Irish started practice in Orlando for Monday's Citrus Bowl against LSU. 

The Irish will now be without sophomore running back Deon McIntosh as he was sent home on Thursday for a violation of team rules per Notre Dame Director of Media Relations Michael Bertsch. 

The 5-foot-10, 193-pounder surprised many this fall when he broke into the rotation early in the year. 

McIntosh carried the rock 65 times for 368 yards and five touchdowns.

The Pompano Beach (Fla.) native ran 12 times for 124 yards and two scores in a 33-10 victory at North Carolina on October 7th.

Notre Dame will be down two running backs with Holmes and McIntosh out for the bowl but the Irish will have its top three backs healthy in Josh Adams, Dexter Williams and Tony Jones Jr. Adams rushed for 1,386 yards and nine scores, while Jones and Williams combined for 556 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.
