Schwapp Is Out for Season

The good news is that sophomore Asaph Schwapp will return as the starting fullback for Notre Dame. The bad news is that it won't happen until next year.

Schwapp will have surgery today to repair a knee injury. He had originally hurt it during high school, but aggrevated it during last month's Penn State game.

Charlie Weis had waited to see if the swelling and pain would improve enough for Schwapp to play this season. When it became apparent that it wouldn't, they decided to operate now and give him more time to heal.

Schwapp is expected to apply for a medical redshirt. That would give him three years of eligibility remaining.
