Irish WR Daniels likely out until bowl game

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -- Wide receiver DaVaris Daniels is expected to miss at least the rest of the regular season after suffering a shoulder injury during Notre Dame's 21-6 win Saturday night over Boston College.

Daniels' father, former 15-year NFL player Phillip, tweeted in two separate posts that the Irish will be without DaVaris for a little while and he could return for the bowl game.

Daniels' left shoulder was in a sling after the game. Coach Brian Kelly said that Daniels suffered a shoulder injury and would be evaluated.

Daniels came down hard in the end zone on a third-quarter deep ball that fell incomplete.

He was taken to the locker room afterward. His replacement, John Goodman, caught an 18-yard touchdown pass on the same drive.

Daniels has 25 catches this season for 375 yards.
