Notre Dame's defense has taken a hit.
Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly announced Sunday that safety Jamoris Slaughter will miss the rest of the season. Slaughter tore his left Achilles tendon in a 20-3 win over Michigan State on Saturday night. The senior started the first three games this year and 19 in his career.
Matthias Farley is expected to start in Slaughter's place when No. 11 Notre Dame hosts No. 18 Michigan on Saturday night.
Kelly says plans are being made for linebacker Manti Te'o to go home to Hawaii during the team's bye week after playing the Wolverines. Te'o was sensational against the Spartans just days after the loss his grandmother and girlfriend, who had a long battle with leukemia.

The latest edition of the "Notre Dame Recruiting Blog" has updates on the large number of recruits expected for Saturday's game against Michigan.
Stand up Irish fans! Puff our your chest! We went ON THE ROAD and obliterated a TOP TEN TEAM.
Every bounce went our way, THEIR quarterback found zero rhythm, THEIR offensive line was dominated, THEIR star player was invisible, THEIR defense couldn't get a 4th quarter stop...
Well that was rough. (Note: it is hard to write this post, so I’m sorry if it makes you angry).
So, what did we learn?
-The MSU offense is below average. I gave them time to mesh, but it’s been too long to still not be doing well together. 3 points is unacceptable.
-The defense is still really good. The 20 points came mostly from being tired from being on the field so much ...
