Gray leaves game with apparent leg injury

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Jonas Gray took a nasty hit on his way out of bounds after a 3-yard catch, and it doesn't look promising for the senior.

Gray's leg was tended to by trainers on the sideline and he appeared to be on the verge of tears as teammates took their turns giving him hugs. Gray eventually hobbled off to the locker room.

Notre Dame leads 13-7 in the third quarter behind Gray's 26-yard opening-drive touchdown run. The senior was unheralded entering the season but has produced at a surprising rate, scoring 12 touchdowns in his past eight games, including at least one in each game during that stretch.

Gray had 11 carries for 61 yards and two catches for 15 yards Saturday before leaving the game.
