Notre Dame nose guard Louis Nix (knee) will miss Saturday's game against Navy, coach Brian Kelly told reporters Thursday.
Earlier in the week, Kelly said Nix would need a good week of practice and no "hesitation" going against Navy's option offense.
Guard Chris Watt, safety Elijah Shumate and defensive end Sheldon Day are all set to play Saturday, Kelly said.
And a quick non-injury note: Kelly also told reporters exiled quarterback Everett Golson could participate in bowl practice if he's re-admitted into Notre Dame — which has been the expectation since his expulsion in May. Golson is expected back on campus in a few weeks, Kelly said.
