Daniels out until bowl; Russell cleared

DaVaris Daniels underwent surgery Sunday morning to repair a broken left clavicle, Notre Dame announced, and the redshirt freshman is expected to return in December, when the Irish prepare for their bowl game.

Daniels' left shoulder was in a sling after the 21-6 win over Boston College and he will miss Notre Dame's final two regular-season games. Daniels came down hard in the end zone Saturday on a third-quarter deep ball that fell incomplete. His replacement, John Goodman, caught an 18-yard touchdown pass on the same drive.

Daniels has 25 catches this season for 375 yards.

The Irish did get some positive news on the injury front, however, as coach Brian Kelly said Sunday that cornerback KeiVarae Russell has been cleared to return after leaving Saturday's game with a head injury.
