Irish tackle Tate Nichols' career over

Notre Dame offensive tackle Tate Nichols has been removed from the active roster and will go on medical scholarship, coach Brian Kelly told the South Bend Tribune.

Nichols, a rising senior who has suffered through chronic knee issues with the Irish, will not count toward the 85-man scholarship limit.

Kelly also said Bennett Jackson, George Atkinson III and Josh Atkinson will not run with Notre Dame's track and field team this spring. All three did last year.
