Everett Golson cleared to return to practice for Notre Dame
The Notre Dame quarterback has been cleared by doctors to play after suffering a concussion.
Notre Dame announced on Wednesday that quarterback Everett Golson has been cleared to return to practice after suffering a concussion against Stanford. Golson completed his concussion testing on Tuesday.
Which means that, barring any setbacks in practice, Golson will probably play against BYU this weekend.
Coach Brian Kelly said on Sunday that the longer it took for Golson to be cleared, the less likely he would be able to play on Saturday due to a lack of practice. If Golson weren't able to play, Kelly said Tommy Rees and even Andrew Hendrix would be seeing time under center for the Irish.
Just because it looks like Golson will be able to play doesn't mean Rees won't play this weekend. Rees has essentially served as Notre Dame's "closer" in games this season. He came in to lead Notre Dame to the game-tying field goal and its overtime touchdown against Stanford last weekend.
