SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame quarterback Jack Coan’s availability for Saturday’s showdown with No. 7 Cincinnati won’t be known until at least Tuesday.

Coan sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of Saturday’s 41-13 victory over Wisconsin.

He was replaced by redshirt freshman Drew Pyne.

Coach Brian Kelly says more information is needed before deciding who starts for the ninth-ranked Fighting Irish against the Bearcats.

Tyler Buchner is also expected to be healthy but Kelly says either Coan or Pyne will be the starter.
