Running back Amir Carlisle and defensive end Chase Hounshell both suffered major injuries during Notre Dame's first spring practice in pads on Saturday, Keith Arnold of NBSSports.com is reporting.

According to Arnold's sources, Hounshell tore his labrum while Carlisle broke his collarbone.

Recovery timetables haven't been announced yet for either injury, but a chunk of the 2013 season could be in jeopardy for both players.

Carlisle, a redshirt sophomore, has been snakebit during much of his college career. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder was banged up for much of his freshman year at USC, then suffered a broken ankle after transferring to Notre Dame last season. Coach Brian Kelly has been laudatory of Carlisle, and it was expected that he would be a key contributor for the Irish this fall.

Hounshell, a 6-foot-4, 265-pound sophomore, has battled shoulder injuries since arriving in South Bend, one of which forced him to sit out the entire 2012 season. He played in seven games as a 2011 freshman, tallying four tackles.
