Irish OT Hainsey likely fractured ankle, Kelly says

Notre Dame starting offensive tackle Robert Hainsey likely fractured his left ankle in Saturday’s 21-20 win against Virginia Tech, Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly told reporters.

Hainsey put no weight on his leg as he left the field and used crutches to get to the locker room. Starting right guard Josh Lugg moved into Hainsey’s role after the injury.

A team captain, Hainsey started his 22nd consecutive game on Saturday. Notre Dame is already without another starting lineman, Tommy Kraemer, for four to six weeks because of a knee sprain.
